Brian (and everyone else),

Following your suggestion about joining the convy heading towards plymouth i have done some real number crunching and have decided i will be towing towards the west country.

Reasons, as ever, are human endurance, fuel bill, and time required. The time factor is of more relevance given the earlier discussion about heading off towards ireland the week after (is that still the idea Brian, and is your offer still valid?)

I am, however, very interested in launching @ exmouth or torquay and joining the cruise round - my main concern would be secure parking for car and trailer close to either? Any suggestions (ie local knowledge etc.)

Regards

Daniel

Daniel and others.
I will send you an e-mail off this forum.

Whilst still on it , however, just a quick reply to Alan Priddy......
I am sure I speak for the others when I say that a slide presentation/whatever from yourself/crew of Spirit of Cardiff would be the highlight of the weekend for all of us.
I am saying this because I think Charles The Organiser is away skiing or something at the moment, else he would have thanked you himself and started to make the necessary arrangements.

Firstly - thanks for reminding me Brian, forgot to say to Alan what a damn good idea that'll be, and that the rest of us may have to club together and buy you boys beer in return (although having read the book, can we afford that much beer?)

Secondly, following a bit of re thinking my new plan is to tow straight to Mayflower, either leaving early Sat am, hence arriving just before lunch, or if work commitments allow, friday evening, and then maybe heading west to meet the flotila coming east with Brian, Keith and gang.

Anyone else fancy the latter idea?

Happy New Year in advance!
Daniel

Daniel, I think you mean heading east to meet the flotilla coming west. No sweat. If you go the other way you'll meet Diana and me heading towards Mayflower from Falmouth instead!

Cheers...

or Never Eat Shredded Wheat!!

I will be towing Blue Ice down and launching at Mayflower (assuming I bring her.) So perhaps a convoy down the M4 is a possibility!!

Sure is Alan, we'll discuss some arrangments nearer the time. I might stay with a friend in Hayes (nr Heathrow) so maybe breckfast in Reading services is in order?

Daniel

PS: What do you tow with?

I'm in Iver, about 3 or 4 miles from Hayes and Heathrow...... This could be a big convoy as I am also hoping to come!

Just thought I'd mention it!
