Isle of Man Trip No 2 (August 2010)

Isle of Man Trip No 2

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After yesterday's great visit and just to get the ball rolling, how about an overnight trip to Peel in August?
Favourable tides on Sat 14th and Sun 15th would allow for arrivals through the flapgate on Saturday between 1300hrs and 1700hrs with departures on the Sunday between 1340 and 1740 (times approx).
I could fix accommodation (from campsite to 5 star!!!) and arrange for an evening meal at a local eatery.
For those of you only able to make an east coast destination Douglas is available with similar flapgate times and I could co-ordinate the evening join-up. Moorings are also available in Douglas outer harbour but are not recommended in easterlies.
Just an idea, would welcome your thoughts.

Count us in although a Sat evening or Sun morning arrival would suit best at moment.

Nice one.

Last time we came, we were greeted by the Manx airforce.

This time, it was Dave Mallett and the harbour foghorn.
