sat 17th

Daniel

West Ham are away that day so count me in, Steve Care if you want you can come with me and anyone else who fancies a day out. The tide at Southend End Pier on the 17th is 0707 and 2006, this may cause a problem for the Essex boys at Two Tree Island so i think it will be best to launch at Burnham.

Yes, i have just checked the tide. In my limited experiecne this will not affect our ability to tie onto the end of the pier, have some refreshments and still find our boats floating will it?

La Bamba is up-for-it as well.

If people would rather re-schedule to, say teh next Sat when the tide is 2:20pm at Southend then shout.

Hi Daniel

I'd prefer the 24th this way we'd have daylight time to launch and get across to southend and back again, i need 3 hours ish after high tide at Herne bay to get back in, also worth remembering that Phil D does not have nav lights so unless he's up for a stealth mission we'd be restricted to daylight, it takes me about an hour ish to get to the mouth of the estuary from Herne bay if i go via the faults and that all depends on the weather as well, if its rough it will take me longer as i cant run fast in a heavy sea, we went around the faults the other week when you were also out and it took us about 3 hours to go out to shivering sands, then onto redsands and back via Faversham creek and Whitstable, bearing in mind it was gusting force 7 with a 50knot wind !!

let me know your thoughts

Richard (BR)

Southend cruise

Daniel

I can make either week-end, Saturday or Sunday in both cases, but would prefer the 24th. I'll launch in Essex as I only live 20 miles from Southend. Hopefully this will avoid problem with lack of nav lights. Happy to trailer round to Herne Bay if Southend is final destination, or are you intending to go on from there?

Look forward to meeting you all in due course.

Phil

OKay looking good. I suggest we wait untill we know who else can / can't make the two suggested dates (i'm not available on Sundays) before changing to the next weekend.

Richard (BR) if we go on the 17th or if it's looking like a long haul in your boat jump in with me or Mike if he makes it.

Southend just seamed like a good place to meet-up, tie onto Pier and have a coffee or whatever, then onto... whereever people want really. How about midday @ southend pier head?

Daniel,
Bernie and I are up for it. We will probably launch from Burnham. Has a date been confirmed?

Either Burnham or Gillingham, depending on what Mr Bilge Rat is doing. If it's Burnham I'll rendezvous with you of course.

It looks like most people can make either date, and that the 24th would suit everyone a little better.

Mike from Herne Bay has confirmed aswell.

Subject to Richard (my girls) confirming he can make the 24th i suggets we move it to then - this also means i can goto Southampton on the 17th for Wavehumpers bash.

6 runners and riders to date i think

Top Banana - Myself, poss a couple of friends
My Girls - Richard & Steve
La Bamba - Jason and Bern
Mike
Bilge Rat - Richard

I prefer to think of myself as a 'freelance ribster' - but, yes, I do like to spread my favours around and I go where my public demands.

some Ideas for the 24th

Ok gang after extensive talks with phil D i have a suggestion to throw at you..... How about we meet at Southend Peir 12:30 - 13:00 on the 24th, this gives everyone time to launch and me Daniel and Mike time to get around to Southend for the meet, the earliest i can launch from Herne bay is 3 hours before high which means 11:20 ish. then once we've all had coffee and cake etc and the standard photo call is out of the way we can decide where to go next.
I'd suggest as we will be in the mouth of the eastury and in convoy we could head out to the WW2 Sea Forts via garrison point and the wreck of the Montgomery, there are two sets of forts we can go to and this means it will give the Essex guys a run out and takes me Daniel and Mike back halfway home, then of course more photos for the forum at the forts.

Plan two if the weather is crappy could take us up into the medway or the Swale for a run up to faversham creek etc, the medway tends to be more sheltered and for the smaller boats means we will find the going a little quicker.

All this is weather depending though.

Let me know your thoughts.

Richard

I'll be there, but you'll have to look closely - your 150 Yammie will probably obscure my little Searider!
