We'll be trailing down with family (less dog) Sat pm for this, and I need to find 2 interrelated things:
1) secure parking for the boat & trailer Sat and Sun night

2) convenient launch point closeish to the main RVs - this will be longest trip we'll have made, so don't want to add unnecessary mileage / time

We'll also need to find accomodation- I'm sure this will go round the other 2.

Not knowing the area (apart from some dinghy racing out Netley many years ago) I'd appreciate some advice.

Looking forward to this - should be a great event

Many thanks LT

More great news

We have had a donation from Bob Whittard

And...

A 25 donation + 6.25 gift aid from Nigel & Jo Jenkins with a message saying:

"Great cause and looking forward to a smooth trip round".

Total raised 1,105.00

Gift Aid 172.62

Grand Total = 1277.62

Also, Trevor G let PeterM drive his 8.6m Shearwater cabin rib Peter is going to donate 5 for every rib he has driven or gets to drive around the island. So if you see him let him take the wheel of your boat for a few minutes and together we will squeeze him for a few more pennies
