It looks like a treasure map from the Pirates of the Carribean !

no- stick it on the AGA for that effect

yes - the treasure was a shrimp salad, half a (small) lobster, sole and creme brulee, washed down with a couple of bottles of Pouilly Fuisse and a brandy on the house

That kind of map looks strangly familiar - I believe I have one in my folder called with rya training written on the front of it

That reminds me, I really should do day skipper this winter with the local diver charters.

is that so? well it wasn't RYA with me but a sense of simplification of passage planning derived from pilot books etc.Works well for me on fast passages whoever thought of it

Nothing wrong with being organised, Phil. Looks like a well organised and simple system - for your passage across to Ostend?

we did something similar to that in passage planning, writing down bearings, buoy marks etc... for the night time part. I have to say it's easier than a large chart flapping around if it's prepared like that before going out

I use one of those little books made from waterproof paper. They are excellent. Basic notes most useful. Got caught out recently - no notes and had difficulty hitting the right buttons on the GPS banging through the waves

absolutely; if we had not been to Nieuwport and lost the nav it was just spot on; having been out for the season I'm feeling a bit frustrated; if the weather is good for the next few weeks I may do a Calais or a Boulogne but the opportunities are going to be limited

To be fair you have to have a reasonable weather window.We had 3/4 to Ostend which is fine but you still get the odd lump which goes right up the spine.It made me think about a bigger boat but I am committed to open RIBS for the time being .However I will admit to doing most things once but would probably call off in a 5 or plus. I think the ratio of adventure/aches has something to do with it.

But in my own small world I am well pleased to have done the Ipswich /Ostend crossing given that I have had the boat back for two weeks only and I am planning some further routes for next year i.e Holland Belgium France in that order.
