What do people think? Is this getting too complicated now??
We really don't mind!
P.S. Really looking forward to it and the weather's looking great, according to the BBC website!
Good idea but we will still keep in radio contact
Once you pass Selsy Bill and get into the unknown there are two land marks you just cannot miss to notice
1 - Butlins at Bognar - looks like a set of white canopy tents , watch out for the lobster pods there are many
2 - the very large light green gas tank at Littlehampton , on a good day you don't need a GPS just head for the tank and when you get closer you will see the entrance to the east of it
carefull when entering Littlehampton, it is a working port you may encounter the gravel ship at high tide.
Stick to the main channel when entering the harbour don't venture to starboard beyond the posts which are marking the entrance route cos you may loose your prop or ever worse the leg
no speeding mind you, a 6 knots speed limit applies in the port and we do not want to up set Mr Harbourmaster
PS our digi camera had to be sent away for some repair so I am counting on somebody else to take upon the role of the official photographer
