There is a campsite right next to Mercury Yacht Harbour up the Hamble River - I dont know the name of the site but the marina could probably help.

OK .

Clockwise is good.
Because it's a nightmare getting Ray out of Bembridge .

It's great if Pete 7 is out cos you don't need a GPS. We jes foller him along.

And it's nice to stop at Ventnor and listen to tales of unusual seaweed in these parts ...then have a snack in the pub and listen to the live music.

Then wonder if St Kath will behave herself...

Then steam round and admire the Noodles...then into Yarmouth and get more fuel if you're a jerrycan RIBsta.

(If it's hot a paddle in Alum Bay while looking jealously at the ginpalaces is a must.)

Oh yeah, if Robin's there....photos, photos
If JK shows just give him the tiller

Spot of diving for Froglover, Aging Yoof & crew...and the crew of Pendragon might have a day off ...and Waver...


And another stop in The King's Head (scrounge a drinkie off Whiteshoes)and mebbe ice-cream for Anto & Martin & Slimtim on the pier.
Some OK B&Bs in Yarmouth Steve.

If it's flat we might drag out a very fast and beautiful boat for her last run of the season then try to blag a spin

Richard & Louise might leave the putes and come out too ...

Then onto Cowes and more lemonade for the skippers ..And drinkies to the newly weds Janet & Bill. Hurrah!!!!

And home again.

Missus

Burgee

As this will be my 1st ever RIBnet meet and a few people have said that they will join us - (If the weather is nice) I would like to fly a RIBnet Burgee so people know what side i am on, But i cant seem to find one, I have done a search but it brings loads of threads up- needle in a hay stack springs to mind.

If anyone know where to get them please can you let me know.

Guys

Can you please agree and make a firm decision SATURDAY OR SUNDAY cos HW at LAmpton is in the morning so could venture out and meet up with you say at the Nab Tower as you plan to go round the IOW clockwise. What would your ETA be at the Nab?
This is of course subject to weather conditions
