Yes Myself and Randski have already booked the Premier Travel Inn for 3 nights from Friday 12/05/06 departing on 15/05/06. You best book that early to avoid disappointment.

You presumably will need to stop somewhere on the way up if you are coming by sea - but I will leave you to organise that directly with Mollulnan.

OK Roy thanks, Mollers can you confirm before I book the accommodation, then best look at a passage plan, and pray for good weather

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.

She could go up with the road crew and meet you there.It would be the same trip for her less the " marathon", another boat would be good Roy. I'm cool with taking mine Shag, I think that I'll get my Dad to drag the trailer up there as Es would probably cream it pulling into Starbucks or some such place. Es will prob ride up with him Shaggy, Makayla would be well welcome. I reckon a 2 day trip with a stop around the Westbay/ Lyme Regis area maybe Weymouth. Yeah, it will burn a shed load of gas but a proper trip though. Shaggy and I we're not daytrippers, we only drag our Ribs out of the barns for serious passage making.

Unfortunately I dont have a road crew. I only know a couple of people I would trust to drive my car with trailer and daughter and I dought they will be available.

I had allready considered most options before I made the decision to drive to Lymington and launch there.

When Amy is older (maybe next year) I will do this trip - there and back by sea - but not this year.

If you are cruising Back....

Hi

If any of you end up cruising back to the South West we would'nt mind joining you for the trip, probably go as far as Plymouth. We'd spend a couple of days cruising around there and head back to Lymington.

Cheers
Iain and Rosie

Night - Grab a cab to Newport and sleep at the Premier Travel Inn.

Do you guys have somewhere safe in mind to park the cars and trailers? I'm planning the same sort of trip for the RIBEX weekend, but have never launched in Southampton before, so don't know the score on slipways, parking, etc.

www.boatlaunch.co.uk has all the info you need with regards to slipways.

I have spoken to Haven boat yard in Lymington and they are happy to store trailers for 6.60 per day and may have room for the cars as well.

They have asked me to call a few weeks ahead with an idea of numbers.

Thanks Roy - I was thinking of parking and launching at Southampton, as it will be a bit quicker for me to get there, and arrive in Cowes earlier. Do you know of any secure parking facilities there?

it might be worth giving calshot a call as they have some space and are usually reasonable on pricing
