Rendezvous – Outside Wootton Creek IOW at 11:00am to set off at 11:30am sharp.
Just like the last three years we will be going clockwise with a rolling start, so this is how it works…
Ribs leaving the Poole/Christchurch area will head towards the RV, as soon as they are level with the Needles they have started their circumnavigation, likewise with any rib traveling to the RV from the West (Lymington, Yarmouth, Cowes and Southampton Water). We all meet at the RV time above and Team Scooby gets a head start
We set off at our allotted times rounding No Mans Land Fort where we’ll meet up with the Portsmouth ribs and our friends from the east before heading south where the Ribs from Bembridge will join us.
There are no planned stops but we will need to stop occasionally so that we keep together and get some photos.
Our last RV will be at the Needles where the Poole/Christchurch Ribs will have completed their circumnavigation and everyone gets in one big line ready for a photo that should be worthy of any mantelpiece
I’ve launched a new Justgiving page and it will be down to each skipper to do their own fundraising so thinking of new ideas will give you a head start in this, but there is no pressure on you to give or raise any money if you don’t want to…
So far we have raised over £42,000 to help fund a Macmillan Nurse for a Year and we have won two awards.
Our new Justgiving page for this year is:
Good luck everyone
