Watch out for Puffins rafting on the tide....

If you're quick, you can nail a whole bunch of 'em. Bogib gave me a cracking recipe for them - they're a bit like fishy ducks, or was it ducky fishes, I forget.

I bet they'd barbeque well though, like feathery mackeral.

Will - you are very naughty

Dan - thank you - having worked for Pembrokeshire National Park - many many years ago and for Dale Fort - again a long time ago - I'm very aware that we all have a responsibility to protect the amazing mix of life that makes Pembrokeshire so very special - will take a good look at the site you have recommended

And if you can join us for a beer one evening that would be the icing on the cake

Just a quick update re our Pembrokeshire trip

Have just come back from a week down in Dale – beautiful weather and the sea virtually flat – sadly no RIB with us so we could only look on in envy at those out in theirs

To recap on the current suggestions/set up:

Domestics
  • Camping at Dale Hill Farm is fine – there is plenty of space for RIB and/or trailer parking if required and even if the site is really busy Sharon has a field we can use for storage
  • Camping is now £8 per night
  • There are two showers that take £1.00 for 10 minutes of hot water and two toilets, plus kitchen sink and freezer.
  • The site is exposed (on top of a hill) so if you arrive before we do make sure you pitch your tent well into the hedge line – the left hand side hedgerow seems to be favourable for regular campers and quickest to the shower block
  • There are lots of sheep around so please don’t expect it to be free of sheep poo and fleece!!
  • Chris will be house sitting with Grandad so Darren and I hope to arrive afternoon of the 30th

Directions

Dale Hill Farm can be found approx. 1mile before the village of Dale on the B4327
Please note the road up to Dale Hill Farm has a tight hairpin bend – keep to the right of this on the way up and you will be fine

Google Street View of Farm entrance – lane off on right:

Dale Hill hairpin bend:

http://maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&ll...11.04,,0,10.98

Dale Hill Farm Yard entrance – drive through yard and into field beyond

http://maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&ll...231.07,,0,3.07

RIB Information

Dale slip will be open but there is restriction on parking and trailers – suggestions are to launch very early to avoid busy congestion expected over the weekend

Alternative slipway is Gelliswick – about 20 minutes away by car – lots of parking

Fuel needs to be bought on route – if coming through Haverfordwest on the way out to Dale is a 24hr Tesco’s ( B4327)

Pembrokeshire National Park

Please see the following link for South Pembrokeshire Marine Code of Practise

http://www.pembrokeshiremarinecode.o...brokeshire.pdf

Itinerary

Open to suggestions really – we will hopefully have two full days on the water – weather permitting and there are some wonderful beeches for BBQs etc.

We purchased the Imray charts last week but would really appreciated someone else helping to do the passage plans – as this is not something I am very confident with


Really looking forward to it

Jxx

Seems to be ticking along quite nicely Jean.

I did promise to tell you closer the date if I was going to make it. Sadly I'm going to have to leave it for another time as I have lost overtime and things are looking a bit dodgy at work, so will have to limit trips out a little over the coming months until things look a little brighter.

I hope you all have a terrific time and the weather stays nice. Will be checking back regularly to see how it all goes. So have a nice time

Ok guys
Well I caught the beginning and the end of the thread, So are you coming to pembrokeshire or not?
I unfortunately can't join you that weekend as I'm getting married (yes really!)
But I do have an empty 10m berth in the lower basin at Neyland marina.......and am the rear commodore of Tenby sailing club if I can be of assistance.
Best regards
Paul

Bosun - congratulations that's cracking news - hope the day is everything you wish for

Yes I do believe a few intrepid Ribnetters plan to descend on Pembrokeshire - so many thanks for your kind offer of a Neyland berth for the weekend - much appreciated.

We shall be launching from Dale but I'm sure if interested other members will be in touch.

DHD - do you plan to join us - you would be more than welcome - or do you just need access to a berth that weekend

TQ

Jxx

Yeah I have an e-ticket. Boat may be ok-ish now, so should we meet in the pub opposite the slipway at Dale on Friday evening to look at charts ? They do a nice pint of Brains if I remember correctly, or is there a reccommendation closer to the campsite ? I think the one I'm thinking of is called the Lobster Pot or something like that?

Very excited about puffin watching, they are so cool !
