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.

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
