265.00 per meter!

We definitely won't be staying overnight!

But at the moment can make either weekend.

I'd hate to know what the price was before the discount

Sound like a nice weekend. I fancy coming and will be staying in BB or Holel.

Hi Andy
East Cowes Marina has good facilities pub and so on, to take advantage of the 2.65 per metre we need 10 boats it may be that others want cheaper moorings on the town quay or up the folly .

The dicount given was 10% bearing in mind its August and on a Saturday the marina would make a u berth available to you all rather than rent it to a Yacht rally so not a bad deal in my opinion.

We can either eat at the pub which does a bbq outside anyway, or have use of the marquee and organise our own, I am open to suggestions.
Also hoping the Channel Island Floptilla will be with us for the reunion and meeting of new faces.

Tim

Sounds like a plan to me. Never visited East Cowes with my boat, so it'll be one more place I can tick off my list

What is the accomodation like over that part of Cowes, or is it a case of getting the chain ferry to the other side?

If you have a look on my website under the accommodation link you will see loads to choose from either camping or hotels .If staying in West Cowes the chain ferry is free to foot passengers the boy's from Solent Rescue have a deal at the Duke of York in Cowes so maybe liase with them for cheaper digs.

Cheers
Tim

This sounds great, I would be able to do weekend of the 15th and 16th and would be happy to camp or B&B.

Would anybody be happy to buddy up with me for the crossing as slightly less experienced than others!!

Thanks all,

Luke
