Contact Ian

Its how you feel about it Biggles,If you have confidence in your boat and skills then your very welcome.

Its a bit of a houl though and its all down to how realistic you are for maybe a first last minit run.

If you contact Ian he will talk you through it tonight and maybe get you a ride.I can book a single in the Hilton for £37 if your comming.Let us now it will be fun.

Cant wait. Ian we are all taking Helmets if that is any use.

Hi folks

Best guess for our ETA at IOM is 12.30 to 13.00 but is very weather dependant.

Will be doing the route tomorrow and post if needed.

Dave I will give you a call tomorrow eve to decide on weather etc.

Lets hope its a good weekend.

Regards Gary

Waypoint

Gary, our ETA is 1200 BST so we could hang around outside and meet up with Whitingiom and you and Dave before entering the harbour.
When you have done your plan post a waypoint a couple of miles offshore Douglas and we can meet up there.
Ian

Well, not long to go now! Snorkelling gear is all packed, all I have to do is dig my tent out of my room (could prove to be an all day job for tomorrow that!). Looking forward to it.

Confusing names

Could be a bit confusing.....

Our rib is called Tigger!

A Port St Mary rib is called Tigger II

We are black tubes with orange flashes, and there'll be a Manx flag fluttering from the A frame!

Could you all put your estimated fuel orders on this thread tomorrow.... I have been struggling a bit with jerrycans for petrol, but I now have 4 x 20 litres, so I may need a couple of trips to the petrol station but we'll manage.

I know Ian posted a few a week or so back, but I've no doubt it'll be slightly different!

Garygee is ok for diesel - I have plenty of that!

Out sailing tonight - no wind so slapped the outboard on and whizzed back in for a curry and some beer.

Forecast looks ok - if it's southerly on Sunday you boys will get quite a bit of shelter from N Wales coast on the way back?

See you soon.

Jon
