Picture of camp-site on Herm where you bring your own tent. Look at that fantastic view across to Sark, which we will also visit.

1. Where dose everyone intend to leave from?

I have plans to join BIBOA and this cruise and would be looking to Leave from Exmouth / Torbay area. Maybe meet up with Brian and then onwards.

Charles is petrol available on the dock from pumps ? (I know I could look it up in my Almanac thingy I got at the boat show but I'm in work and its at home)

Had a look at the web site for the campsite and of course the beautiful pictures Charles has posted earlier in this thread. Seems like an oportunity not to be missed.

I belive I will have one crew member from home to take with me and whilst I have seats for six belive that taking an addtional two (total four persons) would be the best option leaving us some room for gear and cruiseing in comfort ( relativly speaking).

Anybody seriously wishing and able to join me please let me know.

Yes, petrol and diesel are available at the fuelling berth in St.Peter Port. Much cheaper than you guys pay over there on your distant island

Hi Charles,

My Real name is Kevin, sorry so use to nickname now. Thanks for the info. I have calculated the distance from solent to be about 100nm. So hopefully with 130litres on board should be enough to get me there.

I hope to go to Plymouth in May to introduce myself and meet fellow ribsters like yourself. If anyone from Portsmouth/Solent Area is travelling down please pm me to possibly make up our own convoy down the A35 or A303.

I would appreciate any advice the groups has to offer regarding this cruise as it will be my first long distance trip away from home waters.

Regards

Kevin Luter AKA The Aging Youth

If your coming along the 303 you could perhaps hook up Manos and others who will be going south down the M5. Perhaps either meet them at Exeter.

Hi Martin,

Sounds good to me, if everything works out I hope to leave on the Friday morning and trail the boat down, via A303 a lot less torturous than the A35.

Dose anyone know what the accomodation/storage facilities are like at the marina? or is it up to us to sort ourself's out?

If anyone wants to get in touch my Mobile Number is:- 07761 - 864043

cheers

Ribnet Gathering in Plymouth

I posted earlier in the 'Ribnet Inaugaral Conference' thread that I would appreciate it if everyone who intends going please e-mail me. The reasons are various, specifically, I intend doing a 'block booking' and hope to get a discount at one of the hotels in the area so that we can all be together (nice and cosy ). I am also reliant on the input of Plymouth locals, ie Brian etc to guide me as to choosing the right accomodation. Restaurants etc also require booking - so numbers are important. As I will be in South Africa and Namibia for most of April I would like to see this all pretty much arranged before I leave.
Cheers.

- Hmmm, now last time I went on a cruise I thought on the Saturday morning "Thank goodness i stayed in a different hotel" So tell me, Charles, are you looking for block booking of the GROUND FLOOR so there's no need to use the lift
