Sorry guys but not channel 71 cos this belongs to the Littlehampton harbourmaster and we do not want to upset him

Lets say channel 73

I am suggesting we lunch at the Arun View pub. The pub is just after the bridge on the right hand side. There is a mooring pontoon and we have permission from the landlord to berth there. I will call him on my mobile so he can unlock the gate giving access to the the outside eating area.
Unfortunately not possible to make an outside reservation so if we arrive by 12:00 we should be able to occupy the tables

So best first head for the pub the refuelling can be done after lunch

Have a safe and enjoyable passage

Oh good more hot planning and navigating whilst driving the boat watching out for the "Missus" as she does the sheep dog thing keeping everyone together.

Had a good day out today just a bit choppy with an Eastly wind if this keeps up you will still have a nice run with an even better on the way back

and by the way the Littlehampton landmark is a light blue gas tank not light green

Andre

DJL thanks for the kind words. What's stopping you joining the cruise

Andre, I favour the Mixon hole route rather than go all the way out. Will see if we can raise you on channel 73 when we reach the Mixon.

It should provide some chanllenging navigating and test everyones route planning and navigation that they are busy doing now.

Apparently the Richard and Louise have driven all the way down from Reading to Fareham just to check there answers with Kathleen and Paul.

In that case Phil and I will head for Bognor and monitor channel 73. I have the IC601 with the antenna on the A frame so I am sure will receive you.

Our ribs are on the water so we are not restricted to tide launch time

I would still like to know if anybody is still planning the Owers route
just to be on the safe side and not to leave any rib behind so it comes into Littlehampton on it's own
