Right, just wondering what the situaiton is if I'm camping. Do I just turn up and pay em before I put my tent up or do I need to sort it out in advance?

As far as kit to take, safety kit wise I'm taking my drysuit (just incase), stab jacket + emergency inflation cylinder (again, the cylinder is just incase), possibly my Garmin eTrex. I'll also have my mobile with me, the number is 07740353908.

What's the plan of action for the weekend then? Random cruising around and hopefully enjoying the sun?

Cheers,
Matt

I've met Manx people before and I'm pretty sure they're not particularly violent

IOM

We were planning on dumping Crazyhorse in his SIB somewhere in the Irish Sea with a search for him and with someone hopefully finding him. Since his decision to visit cooler climes that weekend (Tenerife) we haven't really had any ideas put forward.
I fancy cruising round the Calf of Man and into Port Erin. A shark hunt following recent sightings in the area. A bit of snorkeling for the brave and then returning from there to our starting points.
Anyone got any other ideas? If so put them here for thought.

Camping is turn up, pay and pitch.

This weekend looks good, hope next one is likewise.
Anyone out in Cardigan Bay on Saturday???

Well, I've been looking hard all week for a new boat but nothing in sight yet so myself and Socco Hart are thumbing it at the moment.

Snorkelling for the brave? I'll pack my wetsuit, snorkelling kit and underwater camera then.

Can't wait!

Mad probably fits better actually. I'd use the drysuit for snorkelling but I'd never sink, so bloody cold wetsuit it is!

IOM spaces

Anyone got two or three spare seats onboard? I have offered tubes but they were not much impressed with 60 mile each way on them. This is what happens when you flog your RIB two weeks before a trip!
Seriously though, Dave and Keith are after an armchair for the ride, can anyone assist.
I have talked Matt into coming as well but haven't told him there's only one seat on mine! I have now though.
So 3 seats required! Please post or PM if you've got space on yours.

If there's no seats going I'm more than happy to be seated on tubes, it's where I usually sit on a RIB anyway, and that's with poorly experienced maniac divers at the helm too!

Hi folks

Dave do you want to suggest a waypoint.

If we leave at 10.00 we normaly cruise as 20-25kts depending on weather, if its flat calm maybe 28-30kts.

Dont know what your crusing speed is, if you work out your speed taking in account ours and give a waypoint thats fine by be.

Also if we do go round the island then I will need fuel dispite my last post.

Regards Gary
