Expedition West from Lymington 4pm 26/6 - 8pm 27/6

Hi. Farfetched is leaving Lymington about 4pm on Sunday 24th June and heading west. Provisional thoughts are to make it to Weymouth or even Torquay that evening depending on weather. This is designed to be a relatively high speed cruise.

Then a more relaxed day cruise further West on the Monday, back to spend a second night on the Monday night in Torquay. Return arriving mid evening (8pm?) Tuesday 27th June.

Issues include endurance - where do we fuel, how much extra fuel do we carry.

We would very much like some company. We have space on board but would even more like a second rib to join us.

Any suggestions from SW Ribsters as to where to go to, where to stay (cheap B & B), where to refuel would be much appreciated. We would love to meet up with you.

Lots of places to get fuel from, but make sure you have enough for the crossing of Lyme Bay. Is very exposed aswell so bear this in mind.

Torquay has fuel if that helps at all, and Salcombe isn't much further!

could well be interested in the Alderney trip, but I guess I have to be a BIBOA member to do it?
