Fuel Costs

Is anyone else concerned about the increasing cost of the Round Ireland Challenge. We are now being asked to pay a further 500 for the provision of fuel. This is way above quayside prices that had been indicated. The original 600 entrance fee was based on providing a bowser which, I understand, is now not an option. Why were so many boats allowed to continue to enter if the 600 was not going to be enough? What are your thoughts?

Hi Peter
I have emailed HMS after receiving that message.
I just cant keep tipping in cash for this.
With the VAT added in, the amount for the service charge becomes 510.00.
It woud be a poor reason to have to pull out, but a last minute charge like this
is making me look at my budget all over again.
I would like to know where the entry fee has gone per boat...what has it been spent on.... also what the sponsor contribution is exactly, and what they have paid or are providing for the branding they are getting.
Its hard not to feel like cannon fodder right now, for someone else's charge of the light brigade.
Andy
