I agree with GTB
In addition, submitting info to coastguard and knowing when all are back safely is a logistical nightmare. People will be peeling off at different times, very difficult to keep track of. Buddy system better imo.

If we lose anyone then we are not cruising in company properly. Roll call at the start and finish and a couple in between assuming we all have VHFs that is

Yep, this year's document is http://bit.ly/IoW2014

Add yourself if you want. It's purely informational - anybody can come along, and being on the list is no obligation (just like all the postings on this thread!)

Even if only half the people on that list show up, that's a lot of boats

By then I should have my engines connected to my plotter so I know how much fuel / distance / time Ive got left. Then its just a case of keeping the IOW on my right - isnt it ?

poulner6 - I wasted days googling for info on how to do it, in the end I gave up and Im paying someone to do it for me this week.

Ian T - well if I know how much fuel Ive got I may do a couple of laps

Is it a problem I don't have a VHF (budget has run short and I haven't been able to install an Ariel)

Unless someone has a spare handheld I can borrow for the day?

Sorry about that, kind of a stupid thing to overlook!

I can loan you a Handheld VHF but it eats AA batteries 4 at a time
