Seems that the creek was only re-opened to navigation in 1970, and named the Dunkirk Memorial Navigation Channel in honour of the small boats that had evacuated troops from Dunkirk (see Memorials and Monuments in Portsmouth (Port Creek Re-Opening and Dunkirk)

Rather appropriate then for us to take a convoy of small boats through it.

So I reckon it should be known as the Dunkirk memorial sib run.???..if we do it once, then we can do it every year!!! (Like nacho run, jolly to the fully, bembridge beach bbq, round iow, round Anglesey etc)

Forecast is looking great, but I have a bit of a problem. Picked up my new car today but can't get a towbar fitted until the 15th. Hoping I can get a mate to tow the RIB down to Warsash slip. I live only 2.5 miles away but it's a long way to pull it by hand

Hi AJ, many thanks for that. Were you planning to launch at Warsash though? I wouldn't want you to go out of your way. Would be good to have a backup plan though as I'd be gutted to miss this trip (having been unable to do the round IoW recently).
