Ok I'm in for this one. Planning to travel from Poole to Cowes for Saturday, berth booked in haven. Stay in Cowes overnight and link up off Wootton Creek on the 29th. I'll add my name to the list. See you on the 29th.

only a few weeks away so starting to think about raising money! Last year was great and it can only get better this year. Earlier this year we sold our rib to another ribnet member here and now have a Regal bowrider, which the young family enjoy and all working out well so far. So... I hope we are still welcome to join the cruise (despite being tubeless!). I have a crew of 4 and they are all digging deep with work, friends, neighbours and suppliers to raise as much as we can.

Is anyone ordering a batch of McMillan flags, if so can you add me down for one please

Looking forward to it and hope the weather is as good as this weekend!!!

You're more than welcome dude. I think David Dodd has done the same although I think it's a bit bigger than a bowrider.

Let us know what you are doing re fund raising

Does anyone know if there's somewhere close to Calshot I'll be able to fill my 20l plastic fuel can? I plan to go out on the Sat, but want to start the run on Sun with a full tank. So many places will only let you fill a single 5l can - I think I'll use more than that on the Sat!

Leave it in your boot and just top it up, most garages local to the sea have no issues with fuel. I've been boating for over 25 years and never had a problem

Thanks chaps, that's good to know. With so many petrol stations being run by the major multiples / main fuel co.s who are anal about what's "allowed" I didn't want there to be a problem. I don't like paying fuel barge prices either.

I regularly use the Shell petrol station in Hythe to fill numerous plastic fuel cans on my way to Calshot, they seem pretty relaxed about it altho I do normally ask first

A few people have asked for a passage plan, now it is all part of the challenge to do your own as well as working out your own fuel etc, however Trevor G did post one last year so here it is for information only





This has not been checked

Can I add a little something. I know that some boats are pretty fast but other guys are going beyond there own boats capability in order to keep up. As we are all doing this on the day it would make sense to stay within reasonable sight of each other. I'm not saying we all go as fast as the slowest boat but if the supersonics feel the need for speed might I suggest caning out of the fleet and back. I'm not going to be a back marker by any means but I will keep an eye on then. There are some bits around bembridge and ride that can put paid to your boat and a good day out. For some of these people it will be there first big adventure. Let not make it a lonely one

love you biff
its not the intetion to slow things down for the big boys we are setting off earlier and will ensure scooby goes as fast as possible for the conditions a big problem for us will be keeping out of a large boats wake
we have had some cracking volunteers offer support from larger vessels and i will personally feel safer with knowing youve got your peepers peeled for us and anyone else that wishes to do so

I think it needed to be said, I'm repairing a boat at the moment that was on the priory bay picnic, that was probably only a 35 mile jaunt but by the time he got back to base his boat had started dismantling itself, a frame, seat, fendering, console catches, etc.
You are going to get some Eddie kidds that you are not going to avoid but travelling in a bigger boats wash can be comfortable but keep an eye on him in case he stops.
It would be nice to all turn up at the finish at the same time rather than find the faster guys on there desserts in the anchor, I want to make it enjoyable for everyone

I'm happy not to empty my tanks too quickly and chaperone the smaller/slower boats.

I'm 110% with biff on this one. The trip last year was my boats second trip out after being rebuilt in 2012. It was absolutely fine but that doesn't mean it will be this year. I for one was glad of the company despite only knowing a few of the boats and members on the trip.
There was a minor incident last year where the white Humber picked up a bouy round the back of the island. I turned and went back to see if he needed assistance as did others. He didn't need any help to unwrap the rope but I'm sure he was glad to see us as we all pottered around while he sorted his boat out....
