6 weeks to go, lets hope the weather improves!
Most certainly camping. But I am still weather dependant, tis a long way to go to camp in the rain, but I'm sure it will be sunny!

grahampollard ribcraft 6.8m 150hp opti
Avocet ribcraft 7.5 250hp suzi

suggestions/advice from Avocet

the tides at Poole are awkward (no entry/exit to/from the marina between 10am and midday on 1 June).
Poole - Lulworth/Weymouth is quite a trip in a small boat (it's about an hour in mine at 30kts) and the races of the main headlands can be quite vicious at the wrong state of tide/wind.

Bingosucks may be better seting off from Portland or Weymouth. Also why not have lunch at Lulworth using the SIBs as tenders for the larger boats? Ample (free) anchoring in the cove and a good pub!

what do we think?
