Nice going David........a trip to Granada sounds pretty damned cool to me. Try and persuade the kids as there is a lot to do and see. How old are they? Ours are 8,10,12 and always have a ball.
The camping is actually pretty civilised, and no, you don't have to bring two sticks along to ignite the fire!

PS You only live once

Charles,

Our two are growing up fast. I suppose "kids" is the wrong word to use these days. My lad is 18 and my daughter is 16 next month. Both have weekend jobs and it's difficult to know whether the'll be able to get time off (or can afford to give up the cash!). We'll let you know nearer the time. Please let us know when you need firm numbers.

David

Sincerely hope your 'KIDS' are not reading this thread - they will hang you out to dry! I will keep you posted.

I know there's six months to go but...can Julian or anyboby else in the Solent area suggest where I could launch/store car & trailer for 3 days/recover. If you're intending to set off VERY early on the Friday, I'll also need a B&B or similar for the Thursday night. Any ideas?? Anyone else trailing to the area and staying overnight?

David

Hi Clarky

I would like to have gone from exmouth / brixham area but being my first time across the channel want to do it in company. I belive Brian and Mike will be making thier way back from the great Orkney trip so may not be around to go across.

Thus I'm thinking of alternativley launching at Lymington and likewise because of the proposed early start would travel down and stay in B&B or simalar on the night before we depart for the Channel Islands.

David,

I suspect trailer parking would be the issue with launching at Lymington. Julian's the local so he can help I'm sure. One option would be to launch at the public slip and try and arrange trailer parking at Lymington Yacht Haven? What did you do for the Weymouth cruise?

Other alternative launch site that I usually use is Calshot Activities Centre. Lots of room for trailer parking and launching and I'm sure they would allow you to keep the trailer there for the weekend. You might even be able to sort out accomodation on site for the Thurs night.

HTH,
Alan

If this is of any help when we went off on the St.Malo cruise I parked my Freelander and trailer over the weekend at the Lymington Yacht Haven. Very nice people and only wanted a fiver put into their charity box. When you get there head for the reception.

Alan,
For the Weymouth trip I launched at Lymington and left the car and trailer in the public car park. However, it was only a 24hr stay so I just fed the meter. This longer stay will more of a problem so the Yacht Haven seems like a good plan.

Martin,
How about the Bosuns Chair and the Yacht Haven in Lyminton then?

Dave
