Trafalgar celebrations - Solent - 28/6/05

Is anyone planning to view the event on the Solent on Tuesday 28th June ? I was reading about what is planned. In case you hadn't heard there is a mammoth firework show (10 tons on 1/2 mile of barges). 300 cannons being fired. 16 tall ships sailing off in a fleet.

Anyway it seemed like a good excuse for a run out in the ribs to watch, no doubt it will be a busy place.

If anyone fancies it please post some interest. If anyone has a place where we may trailer the boat overnight that would be very useful (thanks in advance).

I shall post some more details as soon as I have spoken to my colleagues doing the fireworks.

Yes we will certainly be having a look!

We're Porstmouth based & need to check where spectators will be allowed.

I will be there but will be on patrol for the whole week (IFOS follows T200)

For more info see http://www.qhmportsmouth.com/ under Latest News. Don't forget you must have a copy of the Safety Instructions on board.

That's really helpful Pete as we may have some Irish visitors and we want to make it past Whale Island if possible!

Don't think this thread should be under Cruise Planning cos a cruise it certainly ain't going to be. Can you imagine the wash created by 10 destroyers sailing past the review ship at 15 knots south of the OSB (And I can't even nick 'em for it )

I feel that Pendragon could do with a blue flashy lighty thingy to assert her superiority over the rest of the Tier 2 marshalls . MODpol are not too keen on letting me have one of theirs and I had a spot of bother trying to liberate one from our local plod car (case comes up in a month or so ). So, does anyone know where I can beg/borrow/steal/hire /buy one from.

Hi PaulF thanks for the RS tip - what sort have you got - rotating or strobe?

I am berthed @ RNSC for the whole week (T200 & IFOS) so will catch up with you there.

P&K - will keep you updated although at the moment you know as much as I do. Kevin & I are out on Sat 11 for a spot of "training" . May see you then. Bacon Butties here we come
