Alan, we are the friendly face of authority for this event In the briefing we were told not to get involved in any (quote) "punch ups". We were advised to call in the Royal Marines, who will be close at hand, in the event of such an un gentlemany scenario.

Apparently they are rather good at punch ups....

Cheers

Ian

It's all sounding like fun Ian!

Hope there's no 'friendly fire'?

I agree with Paul, very interesting meeting, just remember '200 yards' has suddenly becomes a VERY important measurement!!
Well done to Gingercoastie for his VIP Status.

I have been tipped off that we're patroling that area - dunno if we have to keep the riff-raff out, or you lot in! We'll have to keep doffing our caps or tugging at our forelocks

Do you reckon we'll need to call in the booties to sort out any trouble in the VIP area?

t200 plan

we're running hourly trips out for the review on the 28th and have a copy of the latest anchorage plan detailing what ships will be where - useful if you're doing charter on the day - if anyone wants a copy of this pm me and send them over...

Greetings

I don't know about blue lights, I'm having enough trouble working out where to attach the large flag they gave us.... (that we have to give back)

Went to the London meeting on Wednesday and am positioned in the Gold area. Very interesting and as someone said.... lots of goodies to take home!

I will be mooring at Cowes East on Sunday and Monday so if anyone else is, perhaps a few beers may be had Monday evening!

Mark - I see you are - Where are you staying?

And congrats to Gingercoastie.... I entered and heard nothing. Glad you got in. I will keep a look out!

A lot of you have made referance to "dipping one's ensign". I understand that your supposed to do it in the presence of a more senior ship and that they'll do it back, but what exactly is a "dip". If it is what it sounds like it should be (simply lowering it then hoisting it again) what should I do if I want/need (?) to dip as my ensign is cable-tied onto a pole....
