We're still intending to camp at the moment so I'm sure there will be space in the field next to us.

We may try and blag a lift to the campsite with all our camping stuff though so we can rent bikes to get ourselves there.

Sounds like there's a few vacancies at the town house now if you change your mind

Mart, is there any pistol shooting on sunday?

Remember there's always every other weekend of summer of course, there's often a gang of us in Alderney in any given spot of nice weather

Has everyone managed a refund for their accommodation?
I suspect we've lost the deposis but that was only a fiver so not too worried, unless one of you locals can negociate for us

There is still an interest in coming over sometime so we'll be in touch

It was sort of gloomy at 5am this morning, I had to put a light on to find the kettle!

Sorry Keith, I should have used multi quote to keep the post/drivel count down.

We have confirmed the menu for the Chippy for tomorrow, they would like us there at 1815 for 1830 - dress casual.

There is a choice of:-

Fish and chips, chips and chips, chips with fish or fish with extra large chips and curry sauce.

Gotchiflounder is upset though, no dogfish.

Hi took the rib from dartmouth to Falmouth last thursday great weather there in well under 2 hours

Sailed the rib back from Falmouth to Dartmouth yesterday. The sea was only forecast as "moderate" but it was more like at times and took twice as long.

Was planning to sail the rib over to Southampton today to meet you in the morning. But no one feels up to it after yesterday so I'm afraid we won't be there...sorry

Last minute details -
As per previous years we'll use Floptilla as the callsign.
VHF 72 for chit-chat.
My mobile in case of any last minute changes - 07840 975807.

Should be in Alderney between 13.30 and 14.00.
Let's hope for no fog this year!

Trevor

Final weather update...

... And for the first time some actuals rather than vague predictions

Southampton:

Little cloud, visibility good, 11C dew point 10C. 1017hPa and holding steady. Wind 6kn from the NNE.

Alderney:

Some cloud, vis 8nm, 14C dew point 13C. 1016mPh and steady. Wind 9kn from the NE.

Mid-channel is a bit windier and warm, but the dew point is lower so any fog risk there is would be lower than the Alderney side.

There are several fronts around, but the pressures are all well above 1000mPh.

Good trip all, see you in a few hours!
