Does it have to be a propper EPIRB, or will a PLB do i wonder?

These dont transmit for as long, and dont always float but they are a whole load cheaper, i paid about £200 (trade) for my FastFind 220 which is the GPS model.

I can probably still source these if a ribnetter wants one cheap. They are new and with 5 yr battery, but i have a trade a/c with McMurdo.

Do not know - did not contact them (yet) I consider to get my own

@ Daniel
In the RI information they mention particular EPIRB , nothing about PLB ..

thought about this...If you aren't in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?
much to do to get to the start - would want to refit and reprep, and a fair bit of kit to buy. Under no illusion that its out of my comfort zone and a whole different proposition to a 2 hr afternoon run about,
but although I have the right boat (and the wettest one I expect),
I have every reason to talk myself out of it on cost alone.
Beats me then why I just sent off the entry form and paid the fee ;-)

admiralty charts Ireland

Hi there ,
One of the requirements of the RI 2013 is to have paper charts of Ireland .
I learned that Germany is not the best source to get these marine charts ..
Can anybody advise a source in UK or Ireland ??
Thanks in advance !
Jürgen

If Leisure charts are OK then the Imray series may be the best option - you can buy them on Ebay and from UK based chandlers. They cost about £17 each - it's gonna hurt! They're folded small and are printed on water resistant paper

You need: C61, C62, C64, C53, C54, C55, C56, C57

Look for recent publication dates - this seller seems to have 2012 publications: Linky

Hi willk,
Many thanks - will follow this up !
I was looking on ebay in the UK for charts but my mistake was that I was searching for admiralty or marine paper charts ...
Hope to see you in Killybegs in the summer

Thanks !
Seems I was a bit too fast .. just found and ordered all necessary imray charts through amazon ..
But at least another item I can "tick off" from my to do list .
The 3 remaining items are to get (or rent ?) an EPIRB , to book the channel ferry and to reserve accomodation ..
