For Saturday let's set VHF Channel 8
as the preferred channel.
My Mobile is 07840 975807.
If possible can people who have said they are intending to join us drop me a text if you have problems on the day, or are running very early or late! (and if you do text can you include your Ribnet name, boat name, and real name in the message so I have a vague chance of knowing who it's from!).
As most of us will be in small boats with just handheld radios don't be surprised if communications get a bit dodgy. We won't be able to hear most calls unless we are stationary and can see you anyway
. - oh yes - and the mobile will be tucked away in a dry pouch so won't be that easy to use either
All passage planning etc is entirely up to each skipper.
If anyone is running very late in the morning, maybe try and buddy up with another boat and catch up in Ventnor!
