Poole it Is

Looks like Poole it is then.

Like last time gather off Cowes at 1030 hrs. For all those coming from East of Cowes.
Approx' 1200 hrs arrive off Yarmouth just to see if we can make it to Poole with regards weather etc.
1330 hrs arrive Poole for lunch etc.

1500 hrs depart Poole and head back to Cowes etc.

All these timings are provisional and done off the top of my head so may be way out.

I am quite happy to sort out the passage down to Yarmouth but would appreciate someone with more local knowledge coordinating from Yarmouth to Poole.

Matt would you like to sort out an eatery once we get a bit more sorted with numbers.

Weather

All I can find out at the moment is that from the middle of this month its going to start getting down to the temperatures it should be for this time of the year.

I'm not sure I'd be able to make it down there and back on one tank, does anyone know if the fuel barges will definately be open?

Do you have room for spare fuel cans? If not, I could carry them for you... just in case..

I will be filling up in yarmouth just to make sure I leave there on a full tank

I do not think the fuel barge will be open, but however fuel can be obtained from Salterns Marina or Cobbs Quay.

Tim,

Just done a quick route on Mapsource and it says its 24 miles from Yarmouth to Poole. Hope that helps in your planning. I can carry spare plastic fuel cans for you if required.

Forming Up Waypoints

For Planning Purposes I suggest the following Waypoints for forming up.

1030 hrs. Off Cowes. Gurnard Black/Yellow Buoy - N50 46.191 W1 18.819.

1200 hrs Off Yarmouth. Yellow Buoy (In location April to October so may have been removed) - N50 42.889 W1 29.485.

A more detailed list of Waypoints will follow as the plan expands.

I can plan a route from yarmouth to Poole but this will be done straight from mapsource and I have no knowledge of the best route to take so would appreciate it if some one else could supply those waypoints.

An estimate of distance from Cowes RV to the top of Poole Harbour is 30 Nautical Miles one way. I should be able to do this on one tank but I will be carrying 25 litres spare in plastic fuel cans that I will start to put in at Yarmouth and finish whats left over at Poole. Just so I don't have to pay marina prices.

I don't envisage any major stops on route because it will take us long enough to get to Poole and the nights are drawing in so we have to be aware what time sunset is.

Participants so far are :- (Anybody is welcome though )

Nauti Buoy ?

Nos4r2 has suggested a blast out to Swanage but I think we might be a bit restricted on time if we are going to eat at Poole. Maybe something for the crews launching nearer to Poole to occupy themselves whilst the rest of us get to Poole.

As usual this is a casual cruise; skippers are responsible for their boats and the people on them – RIBnet nor I can not be held responsible for anything that happens. Obviously we will all keep a good look out for each other, and it should be a great day out.

The best route for you would be via North Head buoy, which is north of Cardinal east of the Shingles Bank. Then take a CTS to East Loo channel buoy. Make sure your charts are up to date as the east loo channel has moved.

Simon,

Nice of you to put your head of the parapet. Is that you volunteering for a course from Yarmouth ?

I can locate north head Buoy and its the route I would have chosen with my limited knowledge but I can't find the East Loo Channel Buoy !
