INFORMATION PAGE TWO

BITS AND BOBS.

CBYC does not have its long and lat handy, but once you find the barrage, you will find the yacht club.
It is not problem calling Barrie or myself if you need any help.
The bar will be open Friday night, all day Sat and Sun and food is available.

There is a key you can get from behind the bar - like a key card, for a 10.00 deposit - this gives you 24 hrs access - I will get one as a spare anyway!

Pontoon areas we can use are:
Pride of Bristol - Jools - that pontoon where the big survey boat was one - he is being moved.
It is the first pontoon you get to by the slipway.
Please keep the first square - about 10 mteres free for the dinghy sailors who have a race on Sunday - they will be surprised!
The other spot is, leave the first pontoon on your right and follow it along the river till you get to the break, you will turn right and see the 2nd slipway.
Pass along and literally come back on yourself till you get to the first pontoon and tie up on the other side - makes sense? I will try and put some SOC stickers on the pontoons - or just check.
Additionally, the pontoon running on from the 2nd slipway, we can use as well.
It makes more sense when you see it. - honest guv.

The deal is 15.00 all in for those arriving Friday and Saturday - iuncludes all uses of slipways, pontoons and facilities,parking. Those arriving sunday only - call it a 5.00 / fiver.
Please give me all monies- I will sort out with CBYC afterwards. Remind me if you have not paid - and pls be honest - I have not got a money tree in my garden!

The do not require any paperwork at all. You may want to check out the Cardiff Harbour Authority website and the latest info for Bay users, access, and notice to mariners - www/cardiff.gov.uk/cha


What else?
Ah, I know, very important!!

Sorry, Lads & lasses...

but, like JK, I also have to work this w/e so I thought I would post a quick mesage to wish Allan P and his team all success and a safe voyage and to everyone else, have a great time in Cardiff . I will look forward to the piccys next week and hopefully be able to put faces to names (perhaps a group shot with Nadia in pole (!) position [that should get a : or two]).

By the way a friend of mine is on duty on the Bristol Channel Pilot boat, Robina Fisk, on Sunday and has promised to try and take some pictures of SOC passing Sully Island. If he has any luck, I will post them in due course.

Best wishes to SOC and all RIBS (& SIBS of course, Keith)

My SIB doesn't really have a name. However it is a Quicksilver and has 'Quicksilver' written on the side so I think I'll call it 'Quicksilver'.

"Pride of Bristol - Jools and gang - defiantely by sea." Yeh I'd love to see PoB on a trailer!!!

Not long now.

Cheers

More info on runners and riders........

last I heard:

Toby is travelling with Mike Garside
Allen C is hopefully coming Saturday other commitments permitting
Mike Carson's boat is called "Prime Rib"
Keith Dobson was called Kevin Dobson last time I met him!
Scubakids boat is called "Dromedary"(ex-Camel boat geddit?!)

And I'm intrigued as to who the mystery boat is!
Cheers,
Alan

The good news is that the 'bit' my local marina was out of stock of, that they needed to complete the service on my engines is now in. The bad news is that they won't be able to fit it until after Easter.... which means, alas that Prime Rib will not be at the SOC send off. Since it's a bit cold for a swim, neither will I...... Have a great send off Alan. I'll try and make the return! (Unless you want to delay it till next week?)

All points noted.

Must have had Keith on my mind when I wrote in Kevin's name!

Ribald - that news re the pilot boat is great! Thanks.

Mike C - sorry you can't make it - send a photo for behind the bar.

I got two more info pages to post - !. where are we partying and 2. Where are we all sleeeping?

Bear with me.
