I am hoping to go from Chi harbour Friday week, probably solo. I wouldn't mind some company, what with my recent luck and incompetance. I see you are handy with a tow rope.
Could meet Chi Bar Beacon to Forts area.

Sounds good to me.

Graham F and I will be leaving Littlehampton at about 08:30 on Friday morning so guess we will be in your neck of the woods at about 09:15 ish.

I need to make contact with Ribald to see what time he wants to meet.

Does that tally with the times you were thinking of?

Phil

We're planning on launching at Chichester at around 10 or thereabouts. Would be happy to link up from there or further out if the timing tied in with anyone else's plans.

Phil and Janet

Times are good. I wil be launching from Northney to suit. 20 mins from Northney to Chi entrance + time to RZ.

It will be good to meet another BWM/Porter 6.5.

Now all I have to do is get some wheels back on the trailer so that I can get the engine serviced.

I feel a separate thread coming on to see who is going from where.

Who is going to RIBex from east of Cowes and when. Could be fun to arrive bananna style (in a bunch) to keep the berthing master on his toes.

Friday a.m. Meeting somewhere off Chicheter entrance, 9:15 ish
So far:-

Myself
Paul Chitty
Janet

Any more?

Actually Mark, we're going to struggle to get out that early - McSkipper says he can't stand another really early start

More like 11 am ish for us outside the Harbour, so will happily go with a later group if anyone is going later.

No probs Janet.

I guess the Littlhampton brigade have a tide to make, hence the early arival.

Alternative, meet at H.I.S.C. for coffee anyone?

Hi folks,

We (self & Mr Scurvey Crew) plan to launch Pendragon from ECA Langstone between 0930 & 1000.(RIBnet time )

Paul/Mark, if you want to wiz into Langstone on your way there are 4 yellow bouys on the left as you come into the harbour through The Run. These are the Club's visitor bouys where you can tie up whilst we launch from the slip behind them. We could then nip back to Chi entrance to wait for Janet & Bill before a burst down the Solent picking up anyone else on the way.

Mark - as LW is at 0600, would you not have enough water to come under Hayling Bridge and down through Langstone?

Will PM you all my mobile number.

3h20m before HW should let me go under Hayling Bridge. HW portsmouth 13:04 so, yes I should be able to. I have lost 1/2 a blade between the bridges, so may not push it too much.

Excellent. Don't worry about "pushing it". We will wait for you. The yellow bouys you want will now be on st'bd just past the Lifeboat station.

Janet - don't forget the pipe cleaners

I'm launching the night before so we can change our times to suit others. It would be good to meet with a crowd and go in together.

Sorry I called you Paul above, names are even worse than my tipign

What are your earliest and latest times for crossing the bar at L'hampton?
We can get out of Chi and Langstone at any time, except perhaps full spring ebb with an F8 from the south.

Hi

I'm planning to launch from Littlehampton, and I would love to have somebody to cruise with. Since I don't know the area at all.

I'm taking the ferry from Calais to Dover on the 4 June the ferry will arrive in Dover around 10.15, I don't know how long it will take to drive from here to Littlehampton

Anybody planning to be at Littlehampton around this time ?

Rene

No doubt Phil Chitty will respond to your question cos he plans to leave on that day from Littlehampton but not so sure of the time. I think that your arrival will be a bit too late for him.

I am going the day before

High Water is at 12:50 on 4th June
last launch at 17:30
Marina closes at18:00

it is about 130 miles from Dover to Littlehampton and towing that may take you 3 hours and a bit and then you have to launch ect so it will be a late departure

If you decide to set off on your own keep well away of Selsy Bill
I believe I have already sent you the waypoints

Once in the marina ask for Paul one of the supervisors, they know you are coming

Hi All
It is now looking doubtful that I will be able to make the meet in my own RIB.
My axel has still not arrived. It is now 2 weeks late on a 2 week delivery It is finished and waiting for the company I am buying from to arange delivery, and has been for some time.
I may be going with a friend, but he has to drop his son off at Hill Head on the way.
Please carry on without me unless you hear otherwise.
Sorry.

Many thanks for the offer.
I have just finished fitting the new axel which arrived this afternoon.
I should be able to sort the brakes tomorrow. If not I will go in Nick Yowards Porter 575, with a massive 50hp on the back. (Sorry Nick, I know, its a 4st and only sips fuel)

To all that are around.

I'm launching at Littlehampton tomorrow morning at about 09:00 and hope to be in Cowes in about an hour.

Anyone around at this time to take the trip together?


Phil

Mark,
It might be small, but at least I have been out on the water enjoying this fine weather ! Which just backs up the RIBnet ethos of getting out on the water and enjoying yourself, rather than lie under a rib trailer, in dirt, trying to get a new ****** axle to fit !!

Oh no, you got me doing that as well.

Nick
