Ramsey Harbour is tidal - only accessible for a couple of hours.

There are no marinas on the Isle of Man (other than a finger pontoon in Douglas Inner Harbour) - it is a source of major irritation!

I have had some B & B quotes from the bigger hotels, none from the smaller ones I've contacted yet.

What is an acceptable price per head?

£20
£25
£30
£35+

Jon

£20 - £30/head sounds good to me especially as there may be six of us onboard!. Prefer B&B rather than hotel.

Hi folks

Are their any options to camp, B&B can be hard work with kids.

Also have we decided where we are overnighting ?.
Have seen a few sugestions but not sure if i have seen a descision.

Douglas, if space available, looks favourite especially as the Douglas YC have a do on that weekend which should make the town lively.
Not sure about camping in the area though, could look elsewhere on the island.
Whitingiom, help required here if poss.

Overnjight sounds good to us! Hotel or B&B, wherever there is life, but is also suitable for people of the shorter variety.

Sorry guys.....rather busy in work.

There are a couple of campsites on the island, but living here, I don't know much about them.

I could do with an idea of numbers etc. soon, as I am sure hotels etc will be filling up.

Alternatively, I can post detials of the hotels and you can contact them?

Hi folks

We will sort out our own accomodation out, we still have not got our RIB yet.

Just past our third "firm delivery date" on 22nd March and no new date, but hoping very soon.

Hope their will be no problems for the trip but at this stage I have given up planning any dates until it turns up.

Regards Gary

Jon, could you post the details of hotels/B&B's on here.
I have a party of five, maybe six, so with just a 70hp engine can't really take any others. If you need seats can you post on the forum, and if you have spare seats on your RIB do likewise. It will at least be possible to arrange crewing numbers and will also show how many are going on the cruise.
