Dont worry - other boats can carry spare tanks etc and we will stop to allow top ups etc

Not sure about two routes ? - round the island one way is the same as the other ..... Do you mean to Wooten from ' a place' then round or something ?

I think it's about 55nm all the way round,then you need to add getting to and from the start point (wherever on the circle you start) so I'm going to take 67.5 litres in my SR4 (3 x 22.5 litre tanks). That should give me a suitable buffer of spare fuel.

As a guide for smaller boats - the old 2 smoke on the SR4 did 45 miles on 30litres with 40 Johnson- at an average of about 25knts. Cruising at 20knts should give more range than this for 30l.

The new fangled 4 smoke 50 managed 80 miles on 35litres at a cruise of 20knts.

Both on 4m ribs.....hope this helps - but if in doubt - take more out !

Rough weather will use more and slow the cruising speed.

Hopefully everyone knows thier own boats usage or can find out prior to next year.

Update as just spoken to Chris@ lazyblueskies photography.

He's up to shoot it for free, same arrangement as 2013. Money to macmillan. We'll stick him on a boat or two somehow :-)....

I'm up for it again - not sure about Mrs T & the pups. If they don't want to do it this year I'll have spare seat(s)

If I can get down early on Sat & get somewhere to stay & keep boat secure might make a weekend of it.

Team Scooby or Team Shaggy? 5.3m 20ish kts or 30ish(-) difficult to decide. Managed to keep up last year though (despite Tigga taking a 5 mile detour into Sandown pier to find his next boat!)
