Is it agreed to use Chl 77 for Comms?

I've checked the Almanac and I can't find any other official use of Ch 77 in the Solent... We'd better let Aging Youth confirm.

Also, I know that Kevin's already mentioned this, but for those unfamiliar with Portsmouth (like me!) the LNTM detailing entry procedure and crossing of the harbour is here: http://www.qhmportsmouth.com/LNTM/ntm60-02.htm
So all will need to use Ch 11 on entry into Portsmouth Harbour.

If you are in any doubt about entry into Portsmouth, here's the thread about it from some months ago.

Saturday's Party

Hi Guy's

Well everthing is going almost to plan

I have spoken with Alan today, 10:30ish is time to meet in Alum Bay. Look for Gin Place with lots of people with cameras on it.

Comms will be Channel 77.

R.V. Spit Bank Fort time is appox 12:30hrs.

Alan, will call QHM for permission to enter Harbour. We will hopefully all follow in behind him In a nice ordally fashion

Once inside the Harbour proceed to Ballast Bouy where we will cross into Gunwharf and moor up.

See you all on Saturday.

How many boats

Hi jackeen,

Well so far from Ribnet I have recieved 11 deffiante's, but there will be more comming from outside Ribnet. It Could be as many as 25 plus boats which would be great.

The successs of the day is really dependant on the support of Ribnet & others who belive in what Alan and the Team have achieved. Which, by anyones ability, is still a major achievement to have taken part let alone completed the crossing.

Many of you have already posted your messages of suport through this site. So hopefully will we see you all on Saturday if not the water then perhaps at Gunwharf or the Jolly Sailor pub for the big party.

Any last minute questions you have my number, see previous pages.

My very best wishes
Kevin

Hi y'all

I'm very disappointed that I am unable to attend this weekend. It is just a couple of days before we set out on our Orkney Expedition and round Britain trip AND I have to work (day job) that weekend so I've very little time to finalise things.

I will certainly be there in 'Spirit' having been there to see AP et all off on their truly amazing journey.

What they achieved was incredible and to go back to finish off the trip shows the guts and determination that they all have. These are the sort of guys it pays to have on YOUR side.

Well done to you all. Have a great weekend. I'll think of you all as we set out on our own (small by comparison) adventure.

Keith Hart

Hi Kevin,

Count me in, 10.30am at Alum Bay, I'll be there in my little 4.8m. I have no VHF though, so hand signals only - I understand most of the ones in common use

I hope you big boys aren't going to drive too fast for us little guys to keep up.

Can anyone suggest anywhere to get petrol on the quayside around Portsmouth or enroute back to the Needles? (already know about Yarmouth).

cheers,
Simon

Makes me wonder - if Lymington Yacht Haven can do it at 85p why can't others be a bit more reasonable?

Oh well...

Simon, have a look here: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...highlight=fuel
