Solent Cruise 19th Sept 2004

The Timboli clan (Paul, Runaground Sue and Tim), David Manning, and Richard B and Louise are going to be out in the Solent on Sunday 19th. If you're around and want to meet up please come and find us. Rough plan is to be at Calshot for 10am, then (weather permitting) heading down to Yarmouth for lunch, then up to Ryde for a short stop, and finally to The Folly Inn for tall tales and fishy stories. Next week, we'll post more details. You'll be able to recognise us as we'll be flying the skull and cross-bones.

Hope to see lots of you then.

Hi Louise & Clan,
Me and the family hope to be there. Can anyone recommend a launch site that will give us full tide access in that area as we will drive down on the morning.

calshot it self is a good spot, all tidal and has trailer parking.

Hamble point, £20 a day i think, gets you car and trailer parking, use of slipway, showers and toilets, jetty to tie up to after launching. It may be all tidal but is definatly on gravel 2 hours either side of low water and rather shallow. Concrete, steep and wide 4 hours either side of HW.

The Camber, Portsmouth. All tidal, concrete, pay and display parking next to it.

Count us in too Louise, we'll be traveling down saturday and staying in cowes overnight.

Go to Warsash

Good slipway 24 hrs but very long. Bring a good rope.

Free parking about 100 metres away and a Pub on the slip.

5 mins and your in the middle of the Solent,

Would recommend Calshot over Warsash. Plenty of room both to park and to launch, better slip and you are right on the Solent proper rather than being up Southampton water.

Thats Handy

Thats handy because I was l was looking forward to going on an organised treasure hunt on that day but it has been cancelled . Still a totally off the cuff meeting of like minded ribsters could be just as much fun! I wonder if anyone could think of anything to make it a bit more interesting for the youngsters, nothing too organised, you know.

Will do our best to join you - missed all the other organised meets due to work committments etc - we will probably launch Warsash as we will be camping that side of Southampton anyway. Might need to wait for us if it is rough - we are only little!
Martyn and Ann
