Alan W. - okay, you are the salty seadog.

Let me know your plans closer to the time, re weather.

About the trip on Saturday / cruise around the Bay - can go out in someone's boat if people want a run around, but will need a crew space and there is also the Blessing of the Boat and Crew at 12:00 on Sat. So, not sure how much time there is.
Depends on who is arriving Friday and how their hangovers are Sat!

There is no speed limit on the actual Bay, but the Rivers are both 5mph.

Keep in touch

Jools, re the POB(sorry, diff thread) - may be able to get a mooring for you, but there is enought space on the pontoons and I adv them you need 2.7 mtrs - this at CBYC. Charges in the Marina - tba
Speak soon.

I believe we can launch at all states of he tide from the Yacht club.

Think High tide is around 0900 if my memory serves me right

I guess the weather will dictate how far we go with SOC - but hopeully a good few miles with her.

Tide information:

On Sat 30th March for the Bristol channel is
HW 08:07 at13.3 mtrs lw 14:17 at -0.1mtrs
HW 20:28 at 13.1 mtrs

Sunday 31st March
HW 09:46 at13.2lw15:54 0.1mtrs
Hw 22:07 12.9 mtrs


Monday 01st April
HW12:24 at12.7 mtrs lw16:25 0.7 mtrs
HW22:43 at 12.2 mtrs

The above times have taken into account the changing of the clocks to BST on Sunday 31st March at 02:00 (or whatever daft time they change)

Cardiff Bay and Cardiff Bay Yacht club are not affected by the tide as they are inside the Barrage - so launching at any time is possible.

To get details of CBYC see http://www.cbyc.co.uk/
But please let ME know if you are bringing your boat and I will deal with the Yacht Club - will work out easier.

If you are escorting the SOC out into the Channel, you will get the tide with you - obviously. Tides are strong and high, so coming back to Cardiff and the Barrage, may be hard work - but I know you all got great boats.

Keith, the first bacon bap is on me - you just got to find me, but I will be wearing your sticker somewhere on me!!!

SOC is due to go through the boom at 1200 on Sunday

I believe this is one of the scheduled opening times to ge out into the bay

Also, does anyone know what speed SOC will want to be going - need to make sure we dont slow her down
