We might be... ur of course more than welcome...

I didnt realise the harbour taxi was a charity, I was under the impression it charged... But having never used it I wouldnt know, for Ribs theres plenty of space to moor with access to the land near enough all year round...

Luke did you hear the Lightships gone bust :O Terrible news, next it'll be the Folly, then there will be nowhere!

Just to confirm
The Lightship went into receivership last week, but is expecting to be open again very soon. When depends on the outcome of a meeting taking place as I type this between the receivers and the couple that were managing the Lightship on behalf of the owner.

I'm not sure of the exact details but the Restaurant is a seperate business thats owned by somebody, not the couple who are managing it.
He's put the business into the hands of the receivers and the couple are trying to buy it

Hey Pete sorry buddy was ina bit of a rush but thanks for posting the link up!
This "relief" has been going on for a few years (100+) if I am right?

But to give you a little insight and a brief describtion its as follows.

The Search and Rescue display at 12.15 hrs approximately is a joint exercise between the Coastguard helicopter and the Yarmouth and Lymington Lifeboats, to be conducted off the Royal Solent Yacht Club and will include a helicopter hi-line transfer of seasonal gifts. The Display can be viewed from the Royal Solent Yacht Club Bar where there will be a live broadcast commentary

Please note that, from 12.00 hrs to the end of the display you are advised to stay out of the general exclusion zone extending 200m east from the pier. Beware of the helicopter down-draught!

Hope this helps a few of you out!

And Bruce / Josh let me know what goes on you have my number etc etc!

I may be taking or onboard a rib.it rib but will let you know.

x

I'm hoping to be there to see it but need to get the family Christmas tree first! It will also be dependant upon my lie-abed crew getting up in time (although their wish to preserve the Avocet family tradition of joining the search for a suitable Christmas tree might help that).

The event does not seem to have been very widely publicised and I only heard about it from the harbourmaster's office whilst in Yarmouth last Sunday.

I gather that the present day celebration is a throw back to when the lighthouse keeper of the (then manned) Needles lighthouse had his tree and Christmas presents delivered on the second week-end before Christmas and spectators would turn up to watch the transfer.
