Littlehampton Cruise 7/8 May 2005

OK Guys as some of you have already heard Phil Chitty and I are putting together plans for another LAmpton cruise . This cruise gives the Solent ribsters and not only, an opportunity to see that ribbing life is also beyond the Selsy Bill
Last years cruise was well attended, from memory about 12 ribs .

The plan this year is to have a 2 day cruise with an overnight stay in Littlehampton, ie the Arun View ect, over the next couple of days we will find out how many rooms the Arun View have and if necessary just book the lot.

As you know Littlehampton is a tidal river and when choosing the right day the tides have to be taken under account

The initial proposal is for Saturday 7th May - Sunday 8th May
HW at Littlehampton on the saturday is at 11:25. The LAmpton ribs can launch in the morning and meet the flotyla say about 11:00 .

The plan would be to venture up the Arun river say as far as Arundel and enjoy there a sandwich lunch or perhaps a pub lunch at the Black Rabbit.

In the afternoon back to Littehampton and an evening meal at the Arun View.
The Arun View have their own mooring so no problem here.

Day 2

Depending on the weather conditions either back to the Solent or a quick bash to the Brighton Marina for lunch

This is our proposal and if we have I will then put this down in the Cruise events for May

Names please::

Andre,

I'm definitely up for this one - especially after not making it last year.

Dates are in the diary!

The more the merrier.
The cruise last year was my first meeting with anyone else from RIBnet other than Andre and it was great to meet so many fellow Ribsters.

More information to follow in the next few months!!!

Enjoyed it very much last year and would like to meet up with you Lil'hampton lot again(where be dragons ).

And if Pete 7 is out there again we needn't worry about directions.
Hope the weather's good.

Well so far a very good response . Will confirm in a day or two the dates given as we must first talk to Paul at the Arun View. My guess is that 99.9% the cruise is on for 7/8 May. Upon final confirmation will make the entry in the events

Those who would like to participate pls PM me name of rib, how many persons
and if B & B is required
