Good point Martin . The forecast does look a bit on the bad side at the moment , I just looked and it indicates a force 6 in the morning but as Andre says lets wait till thur/fri to see.

Leaving earlier is a good option and may be prudent. Andre and JK are very familiar with these waters, having travelled them many times, and I'm sure they will advise closer to departure when a more reliable forecast is known on the most suitable rendezvous point for both parties.

Biggles - we will be more or less clear of the IOW so really open sea conditions may apply if the wind direction stays as it is.

Word of warning

Hi All

Cant make this cruise but was considering a trip down to Little Hampton to see Andre and Wiesa bank holiday at the end of May, My intention was to tow my boat down stick it in the water and leaving it either on a mooring or in either of the marinas, Andre suggested camping at the Ship & Anchor and leave my boat in the marina there. I spoke with hellen at the Ship & Anchor today who has informed me that they dont accomodate visitors at the marina and dont have any visitor moorings, the best they could offer was to let me put my boat in and out on there slip way and keep the boat out of the water by my tent.
Then they told me it would cost me 17.50 a night to camp and a further 3 a night to keep my boat by my tent so 21.50 a night

we were considering 5 nights but at 21.50 a night wont be going to the ship and anchor.

So i called the Marina at Little hampton, after telling me that it will cost me 60 for 5 nights plus 15 in and 15 out (90 total) add to this they say you can only get in 4 hours either side of high tide and the 27th onwards high water is late in the day means either late boating or getting out very early in the morning, then they tell me "actually we dont have space bank holiday weekend anyway"

So if you were thinking of camping at the ship & anchor and leaving your boat afloat then forget it ! ....your only option is to put it in and out and keep it by your tent.

Good luck and hope the cruise goes well

Well the way I look at it Im not doing this every week so, as we say in Rib Circles, "lets push the boat out"? I have worked it out that it will cost me 55.00 for the weekend at Ship and Anchor which includes two launches. Yes its a "rip off" but thats the way of the world. We camp all over the country and for a commercial site the Ship and Anchor is not expensive. However their facilities seem to leave a lot to be desired for the price but hopefully I will not be using them much?
Looks like Drysuits will be the order of the day.
Andre - Have you decided what time we are actually eating at The Arun View? 6.30 seems a little early but I understand if some of you are going out on your boats later. We wont be joining you for that Im afraid - but will watch with interest?

Noddy.....Have a think about camping somewhere cheaper and launching on the public slipway at little hampton, this will be cheaper and your likely to get better facilities at an alternative campsite, and alternative to this i looked into was keeping the boat in the Marina at little hampton, bank holiday weekend seems to be out but this weekend might be ok, and worked out at 3 per metre plus 12 (non bank holiday launch fee) it might be a cheaper option.

What i wanted to do was launch once and leave my boat afloat, i was attracted to the idea of just rolling out of bed and going boating without the hassle of launching and recovering every day.

I will know better next time Bilge Rat - Unfortunately we have a campervan so parking in Littlehampton would be a problem. I'm with you regarding getting out of bed straight into the boat but we would all like to live in "utopia". I am hoping the ship and anchor fee includes them launching and recovering our boat?

Guys

Just looked at the weather for the weekend and it looking like the sun will shine on us, especially Sunday.

I was going to offer some sort of contingency plan if the weather was going to turn nasty but I think I'll hold off for now. (Comes with the job!!)

Have we decided on final meet times?

Can I suggest we appoint a contact person from each of the two groups who can exchange mobile no.s incase of any issues on the morning.

Phil
