Quite difficult the pics bit - because we are going back to a time when digital / phones etc did not exist. Here is the bike I was on - which caused sensations in the IOM as there were very few road versions produced. Steve Spray and Trevor Nation were winning the all the events on the Norton works bikes. My mate was on a beautiful Ducati 851 and Jezza was on his trusty Trident. Ah them were the days.

How's the accommodation in Peel looking any info would be great we would also like a group meal on Saturday night is there any place that could take a large booking

So who's up for this weekend ?
Last time Willk, Dan and I went to the IOM was for the TT!! However it was a day trip in heavy fog. So much so that not a single race was run the day we were there
We went into Douglas last time so haven't been to Peel. IOM guys were great and very helpful to us.
I'll pencil in the 21st.

Great I've been in touch with Willk, him and Dan are up for this I've also been in touch with a few B & B,s
Will post more info when I have feed back from them
Also see if a mod can change the title from TT race to " IOM 21st June "
I'm sure Brian can arrange a place for the ribs so this cruise is definitely on

I am sure you will have no problems parking at Peel.
If you want to park in the Marina itself, you will need to arrive at flapgate open times (+ and - 2 hours either side of high tide).
No problems with space, Mike is the HM.
If you arrive outside those times, there is loads of room alongside the breakwater wall. However you MUST respect the fishing boats and NOT tie up to, or alongside them.
Best to raft-up at the inner point on the breakwater, next to the RNLI station.
And there are now a whole harbour full of pontoons, security gates, cameras etc. so your pride and joy will be quite safe!
