@TSM
Hugo sent at the end of last year a list of possible hotels or B&B for all the locations of the RI - that is not the problem ..
The challenge is to find accomodation in a reasonable distance to the marina .
I looked at some places but they are quite remote ..
But there´s still time and I´ll sort it out..

*thanks for land support !!!

apparently 19 boats have entered...I expect that will put a strain on the local accomodation !

I also checked Imray charts on ebay UK ... we re not alone, i m planning to buy them with a friend and make 1/1 copies. coz 10 charts at 22eur ...will increase a bit the budget ...and i m still looking for the epirb, but ...i will ask a confirmation to HMS.
I also received the accomodation list, some B&B's got a luxurious price, if it s not raining i will sleep on the potoon , if there s a potoon

cant wait to see you all !!!!

Price is one issue . When you check the location you will find that some B&B are miles away from the marina .
Somebody mentioned in this thread camping . I like it - I LOVE it but the irish weather might spoil the romantic evening sitting at a camp fire .. and after a full day at sea to sleep in a wet sleeping bag is also not very motivating .

As for the EPIRB I got reply from the link Hugo provided :

1 x Automatic EPIRB, fully programmed with your vessel’s MMSI, Boat Name and Port of Registry – these details would be required if you wish to proceed so we can programme the epirb accordingly.
Price each £75.00 per week to hire.
Delivery to Germany - £45.00
Delivery back to UK after the hire would be at your cost.
Prices are exclusive of UK VAT at 20%

Hi Bushrider
At the moment we're definitely looking to camp rather than book B&B's.
We know it's a risk with the Irish weather - but then again if there is bad weather and there is a day's delay, everyone's B&B bookings will be in the wrong place, at which point we'll be able to try and find a last minute B&B like everyone else if we want to - but at least we'll have the tent as a back-up.
Trevor
