Round Isle of Wight for Macmillan Cancer Support-Sunday 26th May 2013

In memory of Roy Bishop and to remember the loved ones we have lost, I propose to circumnavigate the Isle of Wight on the Sunday 26th May 2013.

I will set up a justgiving page so no money needs to change hands if you dont want it to.

It's up to you how you boat raises money so be as crazy as you like with fancy dress and fun raising ideas (I still love the Pirate theme)

If there is a Manufacturer reading this who would like to sponsor the video of this trip then please do get in touch with me

Hope to see you there and here's the video from last year's trip:

The main RV will be just outside Wootton Creek, Isle of Wight on the 26th May 2013 and we will be leaving there at 10:00am Sharp! and going clockwise around the island.

We will take a quick look at Whitecliff Bay before arriving at Ventnor and if the weather is suitable we will be stopping at Ventnor for lunch.

As the harbour cannot berth the amount of boats that have shown an interest in this cruise we will have to anchor off Ventnor Beach and use a few boats to ferry people into the harbour. (please make sure that your anchor is suitable for a stay of approximately 1.5 hours).

If you want to go ashore, once on land you can have a picnic on the beach or there are pubs and cafes along the seafront but as we only have an hour here it's best to choose an option that can deliver your meal in enough time for you to eat in and get back to the harbour by 13:00 so that you can be ferried back to your boat.

If it is a calm day some may opt to stay afloat and maybe try a little fishing?

Once we set off again we will be rounding St Catherine’s Point and then calling into Freshwater Bay.

Once we are all caught up and back together again we will take a slow cruise around together to the Needles where we will take a group photograph.

I guess our friends from Poole may want to head back at this point but for the rest we will call at Alum Bay to have a look at the coloured rocks before we give people the option of a fuel stop at Yarmouth.

Once we leave Yarmouth we will head up the Solent towards Cowes for those who want to visit there but I will be waving goodbye outside Cowes and heading home to recover at Calshot.

Regards

Alex

Count me in. May I suggest Macmillan Cancer Support? They are a wonderful organisation who were a massive help to my family, especially my Dad, when we lost my Mum to cancer. Macmillan rarely take th limelight, but I'm sure, will be working hard for the Bishop family now and for weeks to come.

Hey guys, an admirable undertaking but, before too many pledge on the Justgiving page, you may want to consider using Virgin Money Giving instead. JG's charges on donations are much higher than VMG, meaning less actually reaches the nominated charity. Also, with VMG you can nominate more than one charity (if you wish to) and specify the percentage split between those chosen (50/50 - 60/40 - 50/25/25 or any other combination).

Hi and thanks for the feedback I'm a great believer in keeping the ball rolling and the Justgiving page has already been created and people have already started to donate so I'm going to leave things as they are. Justgiving have a good rep and their fees page explains how it all works which I'm very comfortable with

I'd be interested in joining you guys. It would be good to do a slightly longer journey and good to have the company of other boats.

Both my parents suffered from the big C, and so it is a cause dear to my heart.

You may need to take a very large collection bucket as the 1st June is the Round the Island sailing race, so you will be joined by nearly 2000 rag and stick boats.

J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race - Dates of future races

We may be out to watch, but this year (2012) we walked to Hurst Castle with breakfast to watch them all fighting the tide.

That will be a great day for the RIB run with all yachts out, fantastic sight. They start about 0500 of Cowes. We will be working so wont be able to do charity run
about 1800 yachts, one of the largest races. And loads of support services out too.
