Feel free to add your name to the list in this document,

which makes it a bit easier for folks to find/contact you if they are looking for a spare seat.

At least 2 other ribs went from there last year, so there should be a few of us.
I will also launch from Christchurch, hopefully get there on time this year !!

Got B&B booked for the family for the Sat night at Fawley - glad I've done it early! looks like Calshot will be our launch point.

Could meet up on Sat 28th at Aroma Indian Cuisine, Restaurant and Takeaway, Holbury, Southampton, Hampshire. Call: 023 8089 7722 or 023 80 89 7755

Nothing too hot though, don't fancy getting caught out near St Catharine's...

If anyone else is launching from calshot I would recommend this place for breakfast, might be a squeeze with a rib on the back though...

Okey, dokey, looks like myself and the Leader of the Opposition will be able to make it down to join you.

She's presently looking for some suitable accommodation for the Friday - Sunday but if any of you fellow nobburs can recommend anywhere within striking distance of Calshot, she'd be delighted to to receive appropriate guidance!

To be honest I would be very tempted to Launch at Calshot and stay on the island in Cowes, The Anchor is very good. Or rent BIffer's house on the Island as that is excellent

However if you want to come out for a curry with us on the Sat then there is a B&B near by that my sister in law stayed in once and said it was ok b&b Fawley cheap bed and breakfast guest house near Marchwood New Forest > A superb guest house near Beaulieu Motor Show, Exbury, Hythe, Marchwood & Southampton.

We also get free camping at the folly inn

Nice one

It's quite a big place but it does get full with the locals at a weekend so probably best to book some thing now?

Here's their gallery Photos:

Oh yeah, it doesn't serve alcohol so you have to bring your own which makes it a really cheap meal out

There is a CO-OP just up the road

But you can't bring in soft drinks, you have to order them from the bar

Now about the Sat night curry - that sounds like a plan as long as it's not a late one +4 of us

Can one of you guys with local knowledge let me know what the craic is at Calshot slipway? I know I could look on Boatlaunch but when there's such a wealth of knowledge on here, it seems a waste not to tap it!

Is there anywhere local to Calshot to securely leave the boat overnight, for instance?
