I don't know if Richard and Louise have ever been stuck on a sandbank or upset the harbour master. Probably not!!!

Andre,

Please put us on the list as an 'almost certain'.

Do you have a feel as to what accomodation is available this late?

Thx

Bruce

PS decent B & B or hotel - sorry, we are too staid and boring for camping in the UK in May!

Hi Andre.

We are sorted. Setting off from Lymington, Sat am as you suggested.

Will need to meet as soon as practicable an assorted crew of:

sand bank repellers
harbour master diplomats
nannies
experts

to avoid us hitting something or upsetting people.

Therefore, an RV and time as soon as some kind souls volunteer please!

We are staying at

Quayside Bed & Breakfast
36, Pier Road
tel: 01903 721958
booked with Jackie!

I am assuming there will be a berth for Farfetched, and fresh oats and straw. If not, and I need to arrange something, please PM me.

We will be inflicting ourselves on you all for supper!

Thanks for arranging it all,

Bruce

Bruce that was quick well done. Your B&B is just opposite the harbour master's office which is adjecent to the visitor's mooring. Phil & I are yet to speak to the Harbour master and will post info just after Easter. Have no fear all ribs will have suitable berthing and if fresh straw and oats is your wish that can be also arranged but mind you expect a special fee
a few pints of the special black and cool drink from Ireland

Littlehampton Cruise 2005

Like last year my guess is that you will all meet somewhere in the Solent and travel together past Selsy Bill in a group.

HW at LAmpton on Saturday 7th May is at 11:27 so no problems in taking the short cut round Selsy Bill .

We would hope you could plan the arrival to LAmpton about 12:00 so we can head up the river to Arundel for a picnic lunch.

Who would like to undertake to organize the meet of the Solent and Chichester group and lead the pack towards LAmpton

The welcome group will meet the Solent/Chichester group just off Selsy Bill

Okey Andre,

Ryde sands at low tide
Bruce and Dave can show us the way - sorry lads


How about sub barrier main passage 10.17 and 45 seconds

Chister 10.34 and 35 seconds - west pole or another suggestion ????


I'll stick a map up if the consensus is ok

Lousie where do you plan to start from.

I'm in Littlehampton on the Friday night so would be easier to start with a lift from somebody who has Littlehampton as thier start point. Of course I can always change if need be.

I'd be delighted to hop onto Bruce's and your own boat at some stage as I am now boatless and looking at all the options before deciding on a replacment.

Anybody starting from Littlehampton got room for crew. Can swab decks and scrape barnacles !!
