I'm sure the more seasoned of you have found this before but the last time we went to Alderney we used the last of their petrol - worth giving them a couple of days/weeks notice so they can make sure their bowser is topped up...
Lovely girl working on harbour taxi in Alderney at the moment, did my VHF/SRC course with her a couple of months ago...
Hi Trevor, just to let you know both Hadley and myself are looking forward to joining you on the 20th July, can you organise some great weather pls! David
Good news and bad news on the weather....
The good news is I booked absolutely flat conditions for the weekend many months ago - and it was guaranteed!
Bad news is the weather I booked was delivered about 4 months early and we used it up going round the IOW on a perfect weekend in March!
Where's the meeting point planned for?
I haven't booked camping yet, where's everyone staying?
The meeting point is still to be finalised, but I'm currently thinking we meet at Yarmouth so the smaller boats can top-up on fuel. At Yarmouth we can still get phone messages from anyone dropping out or late. In the past when we've met at the Fairway Buoy it's just outside of mobile and VHF range for anyone still in the Solent, so we've bobbed around for ages trying to decide whether to go or wait!
As for camping, we'll be at the Saye Beach Camp site - it's the only one on Alderney! We may phone ahead to book, although we've not done so in the past and there's plenty of room.
