We aim to go across on Saturday - probably a fairly early morning launch. Could swing by Portsmouth if you needed a lift JK. PM or phone me nearer the time - think you have my mobile number.

I am working on attending Saturday morning, am trying source accomodation in I.O.W. Saturday night not looking promising at the moment though.

All the way.

We intend to leave our coast at 04:00 next Thursday and try to make it in one day.
Depending on the weather the trip will take somewhere between 12 and 16 hours.
Refueling is not neccesery. We take 250 liters each boat and hope to use 175 liters on the way.
Starting from Holland to Calais and crossing the channel to Dover and all the way to the solent.

Would be nice to meet some of you on the Ribbex.

Dan.
