Louise,

You can probably count me in.

The only caviat is that I have only been ribbing for 5 weeks and, whilst starting to get the hang of it, am not the most experienced boater. The kids get frightened in anything over force 3 and simply don't enjoy it. I'm sure when they have a few more trips under their belts they will feel more secure. I must say I prefer the calm upper reaches of the Hamble to Old Harry in a force 4/5 or maybe I'm not being brave enough!

Anyway, choose one of the marine ride-on toys from this page on my website as a prize and tell me where to send it: http://www.poolstore.co.uk/ishop/691/shopscr358.html

Regards

Peter

Oh well, have fun!

Sorry Tim.

Peter J, thank you very much for your generous offer. Any of them would be great. I'll PM you my address. Hope you do make it.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Me too

Hi Louise,
Just been going over this thread (keep up the good work) like Peter J as you know we are new to this and not done a boat treasure hunt before. We would love to attend and support the day but would like to know a bit more about how it all works and if it may be a little beyond our experience at this stage in the meantime we will pencil the 19th in.

Neal

Hi Neal,

Glad to hear you're interested in this. This event has been planned with FAMILY FUN very much in mind - Paul & Sue (who have done most of the planning and clue-setting) have a 7 year old son and the course has been designed based on trips we have done with them. We intend to keep to sheltered water as far as possible and the course will be altered if necessary, based on conditions on the day. The total length of the course will be less than 45 nautical miles and has been designed to suit smaller/slower RIBs (although big RIBs are welcome too!!).

The clues/tasks require a mixture of skills and should provide challenges for all age groups. Some require you to visit particular places or collect particular things. The clue sheets will be given out at the beginning of the day.

Hope this helps. Please continue to ask questions - we want as many people as possible to take part.

We won't make it (Boat show isn't it?)

Wish you all a safe trip as ever.

And we'll continue to support our local 'heroes of the sea' via donation.

Provided it's not blowing an absolute houry, in which case you'd probably postpone it anyway, Caprisante would be happy to take along anybody who's feeling slightly apprehensive about the conditions.

If we leave Mrs W & the dog at home, we'd be just three and therefore able to take 3-4 non-paying guests.

Just reread the whole thread (checking numbers - have at least 8 boats interested so far - thanks, everyone, for your support) and noticed I haven't acknowledged Nauti Buoy and Slim Tim -sorry!

Slim Tim - thanks for those great links and your kind offer to book lunch. We were thinking of The Wheatsheaf but I'll have a chat to Paul & Sue to see what they want to do about lunch. We thought it would be nice if everyone met up in the same pub for lunch but, obviously, can't force people to!!

Nauti Buoy - the course is less than 45 nautical miles and has been designed with smaller/slower RIBs particularly in mind (we have reckoned on the slowest boat averaging around 10 mph, IIRC). Maybe you could bring your boat and then check out conditions before launching? Alternatively, Whiteshoes has generously offered places on his boat.... Hope you do make it anyway.

Signed: Pirate Flora, the staggering drunk (cheers for the pirate name link, Tim)

Louise,

No worries, the Wheatsheaf is also nice but they don't book. I'll keep an eye on this thread so let me know if you need my help!

A thousand curses, ye purpled, clapper-clawed mayfly! oooo aaaaaarrr.

Tim
