That pitch is as hard as a goat's knee! The jakes are public loos down by the harbour. If you have a few going - hire The Annex - a two bed/room flat from the Arts Center - it is quite reasonable and backs onto the camp site so extra hands can bunk down out there and, um, share the facilities...

Put me down for that! (the cruise, not the flowery duvet! )

Just for fuel planning purposes, the "100 mile lap" - I assume is in nautical miles?

Looking forward to it.

9D your only talking 10 miles of difference. Anyway there's two places to get fuel enroute which are not to far from pontoons.

If I drive carefully that 10 miles is the difference between "no fear" & a good run for my Aux, depending on which it is!

As you say refuelling not a big problem (and I carry 82L - and could borrow another 60L capacity for the trip) so I'm not worried, but best to be safe, as you know how many "amazing top speeds" have been claimed here as a result of genuine Nautical / Statute / Km mix-ups.


Again, just for planning (i.e. check the ones I have in my GPS are still valid!) , where are they?
