Great. They have a fuel barge too, but you knew that.

If you need any shore side support i'm an hours drive from Chatham by road. I will PM you my number.

If you need any water side assistance between thames and dungeness, I have a rib ready to go in Ramsgate.

May also combine it with a trip to Pompey too .. Its been a while since I've been down ...
We won't be stopping in Ramsgate unless things change a lot - You're welcome to join us in Chatham - we'll publish some contact numbers for the event.

There will be a "justgiving" page or similar nearer the time - Thank you!

Cookee, I have emailed the Port of Liverpool Authority, I'll let you know if they come up with a solution, Chris.

If Liverpool becomes too difficult you could overnight in Douglas, Isle of Man. We can "fix it for you" if you were to consider it appropriate.

Thanks very much Chris - I appreciate it.

Cypman - It might turn out to be a better solution - it would be an expensive trip for our shore team though! Liverpool would be so much better on a PR level if only there was 24 hour access to the marinas!
