If there's any drinking to be done then we should be around on Saturday night though!
Harry and Dave, that's great news! Please include a government health warning with the desperados
Neil, hope you've got the info you need. If anyone else needs a lift from Camber / Haslar then Nauti or ourselves will be happy to run across.

We are quite prepared to contribute to food drink etc so just let us know?Failing that we will pay our way as our space onboard is limited.
What sort of time is everyone arriving?
Still cant find anyone launching from Calshot?

Hi Martyn & Ann,
We can recommend camping at Nodes Point
nearby. We hope to have our tent pitched by tomorrow evening! We will pack a few extra provisions for sharing so no worries about Robinson Crusoe starvation conditions
If sea conditions are concerning for you at all with the new boat, then we'd be happy to go back along the Solent to meet & run alongside. We have happy memories of the last time
Otherwise you could perhaps link with Neil & Karen?
We'll be there whatever time (but not too early!!!) and the Hard Core may well be there 'till late.

We're quite new to ribbing but have done level 2 so know a little. A chance to cruise with you guys would be great.
Let me know if we could meet you either as you pass Lymington or from Priory and how we can get in touch
What length boat will you hire? And is it bareboat or with skipper? Our keenness to run round the Island will no doubt be weather dependent but for sure some of us will still be in the Priory Bay area on Sunday. (If it's dry with just a South westerly for example, skippers may plan a run to Ventnor which would be a good run from Lymington.) Paul's mobile is 07790 551442 and as Neil has said
RIBnet cruises tend to use comms Chn 77.
If anyone else is happy to have a mobile number in the public domain then please post.

Plus marks for leaving the boat at anchor in the bay though. And plus marks for making sure the mass of rubbish got correctly disposed.
It was a splurge for Paul's birthday
But we will be pitching the tent this year. Now you can't talk as the wind demolished your camp by midnight and you'd all vanished home to your comfy beds by 4.00
Mooring at Priory worked out fine. Except Paul didn't sleep a wink and got up several times to check the boat.
(Bit of a saddo I did spend several hours on the Sunday collecting rubbish off the beach (no I didn't try to sell any of it on EBAy
) so will bring a few binbags to share
this time. )
BTW Keen Campers include
Martyn & Ann
Nauti & Sarah
Anyone else packing a tent?
Will post a list of provisions we are thinking of bringing soon. All other suggestions welcome! Keep posting any other ideas & we'll do a summary post for printing off & to save you reading back at all. At all.
