am currently chart less for the solent! Have ordered charts from Imray so hoping they turn up in time, or I'll be a bit blind. Sure there will be plenty of peeps to follow though!

Does anyone know of a decent campsite in the area? Am coming down on the Saturday to make the early Sunday start.

Not sure where to slip yet. Calshot might be the best bet as a newbie to the area.

Getting excited now.

Neil

Looks like I'm going to try and come along if my new engine tests good. At least I will be able to keep up a little better. Pwllhelli run got amusing seeing most zoom off into the distance. Still good fun though.

Part from launch location, where else would there be fueling locations on route?

Thanks Neal, will give Calshot a call. Thought they did it, but could not find a mention when I looked on the site. Found it now!

David, would be good to see you! Good luck on the Yam 90 front. Does that mean you'll block the flooding hull if all goes to plan? Hope to see you Sunday.

As I don't yet have charts, can anyone tell me the rough distance of the trip. Wondering how many extra tanks to bring.

Cheers

Neil
