Shame on the farming folk of SE Wales that they haven't suitably sanitised the countryside for the Comfort and Convenience of visitors with delicate sensibilities. What other horrors lie in wait for The Unsuspecting? Cows mooing at Antisocial Hours? Nettle patches in clear contravention of the Health & Safety Act? Oh! I bet there's Mice! There's mice, Knot Yet, aren't there?

Putting the rats and two headed sheep aside a quick update re the Pembrokeshire trip.

An update from the Sailing Club as follows:

There are no planned 'restriction of use' of the slipway for the May Bank Holiday. The Yacht Club (lease holders of the slip) occasionally restricts access when there is sailing event or similar to manage the safety of all users.

As you are aware the weekend you are here will be quite busy so there will be pressure on the use of the slip. But with co-operation all round there should be no problem about launching.

The pontoon should be in place and will again be very busy; can I suggest you raft up several a-breast to help with the congestion!

Moorings are all private and we are prohibited from renting them out by the Port Authority. However, closer to the time I would know about vacant moorings and could give you their owners contact phone numbers, then it would be up to you to make contact and ask etc.

There may be only a few possible!

There is the 'floating' or visitors pontoon out in the moorings that could take several RIBs if the weather is gentle. Also many people leave RIBs on the pontoon (the one attached to the land) overnight and when we had film crews here, they were rafted out. At the Bank Holiday weekend I believe the tides are such that the end of shore-attached pontoon will be dry on Saturday, but will have more water as the weekend progresses.

However, there could be a problem with the trailers. They should not be parked in the car park or on the beach. The parking restrictions are changing this year and enforcement is to be stepped up.


Okay so what does this mean for us.

1. I'll check re moorings nearer the time
2. We will probably need to leave trailers up at the Farm and shuttle people down in one or two vehicles

Alternatively - if people have suggestions re other launch sites thats fine - I did wonder about Gelliswick and the Club suggested it as a possible alternative for consideration

http://www.pembsyachtclub.org.uk/

I'm seeing Sharon (campsite owner) on the 10th April and we currently have 4 Ribnetters confirmed plus myself and Darren and I think for that number life should be pretty straight forward - so if anyone else is thinking of joining us please let me know ASAP.

TQ

Hi Jean,

I want to be there... probably with the SR, and there's a good chance of me making it as I'll be in UK the entire preceeding week to get a new passport fasttracked.

KR

Neil
