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 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!

As long as I can get it back together in time we're intending taking the Searider as well for Rick and his friend to use. - Oh yes - and as long as the weather's not looking too bad as well!

looks like we may have a small RC 585 club going, providing it goes ahead of course. Where's the meeting point planned for? I haven't booked camping yet, where's everyone staying?

Anyone out this weekend?

Tappie and I can confirm we are coming.

Since we're coming from ramsgate, this is weather dependent. See you next week!!

Daniel - 9m+
Longjohn - 4.7m
Avocet - 7.5m

Hi Dave
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.
Trev

Ah, but it will be full of caravans and camper vans now! Not.
