Sarah,

I think so. But after it took me ten years to learn the difference between, Zulu time,(GMT;UT:UTC:WET) and Alpha time which is CET or GMT + 1 and Bravo Time which is EET or GMT +2. All too much for me at times.

So why can't all the civilian UK sites stick to real time and make it easy.

Nick.

Because we wouldn't need them any more and they would be unemployed

Where would the fun in that be?

Please post any updates / omissions, we will redo the list in a day or so, so no trawling necessary. If you want to link up with someone for the trip check the launchsites & post or pm

The Plan
Generally Picnic / BBQ / sporting events on the beach including Rounders ('Shooz Rules' )
If Saturday is good and all goes ahead then might go for a Round IOW blast on the Sunday for those who are still around & happy campers!
Otherwise Sunday might involve Priory Rehab (kipping on the beach)

Local campsite is Nodes Point

See recent posts for tide times and visual aids to accessing the beach.

Don't forget to check JK's RIBnet Cruising Advice.

Please post or pm any updates, good ideas or if you intend bringing a job-lot of sausages etc.
Warning : There may be dodgy mackerel, nettled Pimms etc.

Beware of yotties on the day (famille Halliday in this case!)

Kathleen & Paul
