Right then, who wants an extra crew member? This along with the Orkney SIB expedition will give me the holiday I'm after before starting my navy diver training.

Cheers,
Matt (really should stop reading the forums and get on with my electronics work) Brown

Hi Charles

Unfortunately due to the bad weather I did not manage to get down to the boat yard to take a look at you Rib. I am going down on the 23rd November to spend the day cleaning the boat and hull and sorting things out for the winter so I will take a look at it then for you. Bet it looks good with the hard nose.

Narked there shouuld be room on our boat for the Channel Islands cruise. You are more than welcome if you need a lift etc.

Julian

Thanks Julian

Hopefully, hopefully, by then, all you will see is my wake.
It would be an idea to sling all the sibs on ribs and bring them over for the weeek-end.

Hi Charles!
I haven't had the chance to tell you that I very much enjoyed the St.Malo cruise and my Polish friends went back home very pleased to have been part of it. They will no doubt be back to join in another one . Hopefully for the next one which I see is in the planning. Count us in. By the way I have joined BIBOA. How did you know???
regards. Andre

Hi Andre
I'm pleased that you guys could make it - its always great when people make the effort. It also goes to show that one does not require a massive rib to do these cruises. I certainly had a great week-end and it was good to meet you and your Polish colleagues. Keep an eye on rib.net as we are always putting cruises together you might be interested in.
John has kindly created a forum for this specific requirement

Any more details on this, like the start date?

Planning to take the diving club to Alderney for a week starting 2 or 3 Aug and thought the cruise across the channel in company would be good. We hope to dive all the channel islands during the week using a couple of ribs.

Pete

Hi Charles,

A couple of Questions for you,

1. Where dose everyone intend to leave from?

2. Would Poole be a good lauch site?

I need to calculate distance and fuel consumption for 90hp mariner. Hope to join a convoy if possible and follow someone accross.

3. Are there any costs for camping?

4. Is petrol readily available on the island. On board fuel tank + 2 portables.

5. where will the overnight anchorage be?

As I am still very new to cruising/ribing these may sound like stupid questions! Any feedback is always welcome.

Regards

Hello Aging Youth (What is your real name?)

To answer a few of your questions:

I suspect the majority of people will be leaving from the Solent area and I will nominate someone on 'that' side to co-ordinate the logistics of departure. Saying that, I am sure people like Brian ,Mike and Andy Micklewright will leave from a bit further south - Torbay area. The distance is in the region 70miles and should, conservatively, take about 3 hours. Fuel is readily available in St.Peter Port - at any time - and is only a couple of minutes away from Herm.

Sleeping arrangements: Once I have a clearer idea of confirmed people I will commence bookings for the camp site at Herm. Seagull Camp Site has 2 options. There are large established tents with matresses, tables etc. They can 'house' about 8 people each and one would only need to bring food, Booze (very important) toiletries and sleeping bags. On the other hand, there are many sites to pitch your own tent - in this case - only the site is provided. They have lovely shower and ablution facilities with a small shop to get the bare necessities like bread, milk, sugar etc. You can always go taxfree shopping in Guernsey if you like.
There is obviously a charge for camping but this depends on which site you choose. This is a useful link to appreciate what you can look forward to. I will post some pictures of the camp-site as well.

As far a moorings are concerned, a good solid anchor is something you should always carry with you anyway, but there are strong moorings available and should not pose a problem.
