No worries, as you know, we always have spare fuel of both types for those in need!! Never run dry of either on a trip yet!

We'll be taking 2x 70L inboard and 2x 25 L on deck. 190L allowing for 2L per mile for rough weather.

Also 24L of alternative fuel to keep crew motivated!

Chris will be putting a post up nearer the time with his plans on launching from what I can gather its a case of drop your boat off and park down the road as its limited

That's a lot of sticking if we have 25 plus ribs.
some will blast off some will enjoy the scenery and fall behind the pack.
Maybe a few of the smaller ribs should pair up I don't mind hanging back if anyone wants to Join me.
If there's a chance everyone can get round nothing wrong with having 2 sweeper boats or is it everyman for himself ? What channel are going to use HP best let everyone know or have I missed that bit over the 2 days I have been reading this thread

No it's not every man for himself, yes some party's will do there own thing but the organisers e.g. HP and yourself will be making sure that everyone is okay just like you did last year. Simples

we did the first half at a comfortable 25kn ish on our camping weekend. The second half on the Sunday was ahem! considerably slower. Saying that, Hadd managed it in his wee predecessor to Mr Jingles, you'd be surprised what even the smallest boats can tackle.
