Rather than read though hundreds of posts, could someone tell me if there is a local slipway to launch and recover every day or moor up somewhere? If the launch and recover option is available then this might well solve the fuel problems some might have.

Yes Andy you can launch and recover from Dale - our plans - or you may be able to moor up - we hope to go down in Feb and I will check with Dale Sailing Club regarding this option - if anyone knows better please let us know.

1st May Bank Holiday 2010 - Cruise details and Ribnet Members

Please register your interest at:

http://ribnet.eventbrite.com

Launch and recovery is possible in Dale and mooring maybe available - this will be confirmed late February.

Petrol is NOT readily available on the water so suitable containers required. Petrol is available on the quay at Lawrenny and if you've got loose cans, then a short walk to the supermarket petrol station at Pembroke Dock.

Tenby cruising - worth checking range activity although not expected at weekends

Hi Jean, I still plan to be there. However I can't commit until April at earliest. Is this going to be a problem for the campsite?

No -don't worry Andy, its likely we will end up in our own field but if not enough people we will share the main camping field.

I can't imagine this will be a problem for Sharon - any challenges should become clear over the February Half Term when we hope to pop down for a few days and confirm all the nitty gritty details

Cool - have just registered. How 'cosy' is the field - would it be ok to extend an invite to some friendly climbers or are we going to struggle for space ?
