Cancelation policy

Ok the Hilton have said they accept cancelations up to 4pm on the day of arrival,so if its bad we can cancell before hand.And Dave your right it will be a long paddle for us for sure,we better start now. Its not worth thinking about,never would we live that down.

I am not wanting to worry anybody but this trip is a good one and but we do need a good forcast,nearer the time.

Cant wait as Rib net was great.

My pals are currently out sailing in Douglas Bay and it's blowing a hoolie!

Good job I've got a nice dry Round Table meeting to go to.

See you all soon

yep daughter hasjust come back in from lifeboat training night, says they were suffering from altitude sickness as boat was taking off (women drivers!) the cancellation policy thingy is great - has to be considered just in case.
CH-just off to yacht club, need a key for the new gate!

Its going to be great

,Does anybody want to borrow a 300ft 18 mil anchorplat tow line,just in case the outboards go splut.


I have a Spare vhf HH for anybody who wants to borrow.

We are also taking an adequete Sea Anchore and spare lights if we end up towing.

Saftey and the Irish sea can be a little difficult at times and if there are families around then we cant take enough saftey equp as this is the first priority for me.

A few answers: 6 boats, 18 people, Conwy and Fleetwood or all from Conwy?. Poss. 1 boat and 2 people from Eire, waiting for confirmation.
The dates seem fixed for 28 out and 29 back (June). Accomadation is available at various hotels (as posted earlier). Trailer and car parking is available at Conwy. Fuel is being sorted in Douglas. Douglas Harbour Master is expecting us (a phone call before leaving on June 28 is required to confirm ETA. Outer harbour for rafting up so tides not a problem on departure.
One question: Someone to assist with the details of this cruise with cruising experience would be welcome due to all these questions! Any volunteer?

Thanks Ian for sorting all the stuff out




It looks like there is enough boats for us all to have a great time looking forward to it.


Any room for the tow rope on another boat as we are only 5.2 mtrs long?.

On some good advice, just bought a sea anchor in readiness for ....... well, whatever we find. Flares in date now as well.
We have atow rope just in case as well, anyone got other good advice for novices!
Very quiet on here at the moment, if I have sent you a PM or an e-mail re: IOM in June, can you please reply with the info. if you haven't already done so. You should have got a message if you have noted an interest in making the crossing.
Thanks
Ian

A typical week in the IoM

Not a sign of Force 4 or below this week!

Hope it's a bit better in June!

Just a couple of thoughts, chaps........I only comment 'cause some of you sound a bit nervous.
1. I have always found it useful to circulate to everyone, a few days in advance, a list of "runners and riders". Boat details, crew numbers and a mobile phone number (at least one per boat).
The if VHF contact is lost, sometimes mobiles can be useful (even texting).
2. Agree a VHF channel number, USE IT and go on dual-watch.
3. Inform coastguard-upon departure AND arrival.
There are a zillion things to do but I am sure you don't need any more input from me.
Brian
PS Oh, if going between the island and The Calf of Man, be bloody careful, won't you?
