Timings of launching and recovery.
The club is quite happy for you guys to do your own stuff, and does not require that they supervise you at this!

Thus, you may find it usefull to know that they open their gates at 08:00 and shut about 22:00 / 23:00 when the bar staff go home. The closing time may vary slightly - depending on how busy the bar is)

Way to go Nadia!!!

That sounds like an excellent deal Nadia. Somehow I don't think you'll be short of people to buy you drinks on the Sat night!

On behalf of "team cyanide" as I say we'll need 9.5m for berthing an no launching if the weather is good and 6.5m and launching if the weather is bad! (And before anyone asks, Cyanide is not retractable, if the weather is too bad for the passage around from Devon we'll be coming by car and bringing my boat!)

Cheers,
Alan

STICKERS

I have produced the first batch of 'Spirit Sendoff' stickers and they appear to be okay. Well, at least mine is still stuck to the inside of my windscreen.

Right then here is the deal.

Anyone who is going to see 'Spirit' off from Cardiff on the weekend of 30/31 March 2002, can have TWO free window stickers. All you have to do is email me directly at stickers@blackhart.co.uk I will then send you the stickers by post FOC. So please include YOUR POSTAL ADDRESS.

If you are there for the party, you can buy the crew a drink, if you see me on Sunday, I'll have a BACON ROLL!

Cheers

Keith (see y'all soon) Hart

Keith send me a couple of stickers just in case I forget who I am!
Anybody know a high ranking Naval Officer in Russia? I have been organising the Kamchatska stop the past couple of days and they want to charge me $1280.00 just to enter the harbour!!

(unless some wants to buy 170 miles)

Never again will I say that Cowes is expensive

Our base will now be Cardiff Bay Yacht Club - see previous post.
Yes, you will be able to leave your boats in the water once launched - no need to recover each night to relaunch the next day.
On the Friday night - there will be another party.
On Sat : there will be an official blessing of the boat and crew at 12:00 - support from some ribsters would be good for this too, if you are okay with it.

Nadia................

more sterling effort on the organisational front, well done!

BTW Alan Winnett and Alan from Maldon are one and the same! I am thinking of changing my name to avoid confusion (although I was the first "Alan" to post on rib.net I think! )

I am not sure whether "team Cyanide" will arrive Friday or Sat. It will all depend on the weather and whether(sic) we do the run around from Torquay in a day or break the trip somewhere in the middle.

Consequently I may not be around to organise any cruising Saturday. Any volunteers!?

BTW Is there a speed limit in Cardiff bay inside the barrage?

Cheers,
Alan
