Searider Gathering, Sat 20th September.

Finally decided on dates and location for this.

Saturday 20th September or as a reserve depending on weather Sunday 21st September.

After much deliberation and a chat to Doggypaddle we've decided to do this in the Solent.
Meet up at the Lightship around 10.30 then (weather depending) run round to Ventnor for lunch or the Folly if it's too rough to go round the back of the island.

Everyone's welcome but it'd be nice to get as many Seariders in one place as possible.

Sound good?

I will be there, Its a shame we decided against ramsgate and the forts, but given the current weather situation I think we made the right choice. The next searider only gathering will have to be the forts, in the sunny spring perhaps?
when its flat and sunny like it always is......

Does anyone have tide times for Ventnor for those days?

Dosen't really matter too much what the tide is doing as I expect the Harbour Master will have you tie up on the Moorings outside the Harbour and ferry you in by SIB.

Cheers

Iwas thinking if it was a tad lumpy then it'd be preferable not to have to moor outside. Should be OK though.

The only time I've been into Ventnor, Biggles,Steve and I had to walk his boat out over the bar.

I'm just saying that it doesn't matter about the tides as you can moor outside, even at low.

Would love to join this trip - but in a baby searider - 4m - may not be able to keep up - and having been off the water for a few years may only be on if weather very kind. Where will people be launching from for this?
