No - East Cowes Marina said they have 150 visitors bearths and they would not be full that time of year.

Others could tag along as we head up the coast.
All things being equal - I would definitely go by sea. but i have elected not to organise this particular trip by sea for the following reasons.

1. I will have my two your kids on board - so if the sea kicks back - it will mean i have to go real slow as my youngest cannot cope.

2. Most of my holiday is set aside for other trips this year so can only afford a couple of days off for this exhibition.

3. My Wife is not coming on this trip - and even if she was - towing a trailer - you must be kidding.

etc etc...

The only way it can work for me this time - is to tow the boat - Ill happily meet you there if you want to come by water though.

Where we actually berth is still open.

I spoke to Cowes Yacht Haven and they said that we were unlikely to get spaces at all. So I rang East Cowes Marina and they said it would be unlikely that they would ever be full that time of year so we could just turn up withoput needing to book.

If there are better berths in a more convenient place then I will be happy to use them but for now I will just rest assured that if all else fails we have practically guaranteed places at East Cowes Marina.

OK so Mollers and Shaggy are doing the trip by sea.

Is that each in their own boats or are you getting together and travelling in one boat.

I thought you were moaning about fuel costs not so long ago - by my calculations that's going to cost you at least 150 each way from Falmouth to the Solent plus another 100 for messing around in the Solent and the round the Island trip. Then there's the Berths and Accommodation. And you haven't even got to RIBEX yet.

Anyway - What day are you going to leave - are you going to leave on the Thursday and do it in two days and meet us wimpy "towers" Friday Afternoon in the Solent / Cowes.

Are you getting some volunteers to drive your cars up anyway so you can tow back or are you planning to bring the boats back by sea as well.

If Amy was a couple of years older and a tiny bit tougher I would definitely be up for the sea trip as I know Luke could handle it.

Mollers I'd rather Crew on your boat and and share the fuel costs as Spare RIB has a limited fuel tank.

We can talk about the details at the SW Ribsters Dinner and Dance

In the mean time do we need to book any Hotels etc?
