I was not going to take the boat by sea, rather by road, but in company with a few other RIB's this is a tempting offer.

My main concern is that i am supposed to be co-organising the RIBnet event with Kevin (Aging Youth) and so should be in Cowes early morning on the Friday - i was going to go by road on the Thursday afternoon.

I will think about joining you if i am welcome? Poss meet in Brighton thursday evening. Have you arranged B+B or hotel there or in Cowes?

Having spoken to the Ramsgate Marina people at the boat show they have confirmed that they will be selling petrol this year ;they have taken it over from the independant supplier;current price around 98p per litre;

I am looking to set out for the D Day sites on 3rd June and may well try to update the fuel situation on the other side of the channel prior to then.

At present I am still unaware of waterside pumps on the other side other than Cherbourg but in terms of a walk Fecamp was the shortest with Dieppe the longest (had to take a cab)

This side of the Solent there is petrol on the water at Levington (River Orwell) , Ramsgate and Sovereign Yacht Harbour Eastbourne (24 hours)

In view of this I am considering a straight run fom the Orwell to Sovereign and then a crossing to Fecamp or maybe Le Havre.Both depend on sea conditions and resultant likely consumption of fuel
