Round The Isle Of Wight Adventure...

Does anyone in the smaller RIB category (yes I know there is BIBOA etc...) fancy a run round the Isle of Wight in about a months time.. Looking at launching at Clashot and depending on tidal streams doing a circum-navigation and maybe stopping at Cowes early evening for a meal then back to calshot to recover the boats before it gets dark...

I shall be taking my 4metre Avon Searider cruises happily at 25-35knots two up.. so any other boats 3.5 - 6 metres fancy a go? Going as a fleet will provide safety for anyone who is a little unsure of being caught out alone.

requirements would be minimum of two persons per boat and a maintainable speed of 20+ knots and insurance.

Round the Island sounds good

We have some other cruises planned, but if you could let me know the dates I would hope we can go on this cruise.

Please let me know the dates asap

Cheers

Graeme

Yeah

Sunday 19 May sounds good - nice neap tides - HW Portsmouth 0433 & 1725 - range 2.6m - easterly flow up the Needles channel starts at about 1200.

I'm based at Chichester so if you fancy going clockwise I could dash out and join you.

I agree - Sunday 19th sounds good.

We are down that way for Ribex on Saturday, so this would finish off the weekend nicely.

As thread starter will you co-ordinate?

Graeme
