am currently chart less for the solent! Have ordered charts from Imray so hoping they turn up in time, or I'll be a bit blind. Sure there will be plenty of peeps to follow though!

Does anyone know of a decent campsite in the area? Am coming down on the Saturday to make the early Sunday start.

Not sure where to slip yet. Calshot might be the best bet as a newbie to the area.

Getting excited now.

Neil

Looks like I'm going to try and come along if my new engine tests good. At least I will be able to keep up a little better. Pwllhelli run got amusing seeing most zoom off into the distance. Still good fun though.

Part from launch location, where else would there be fueling locations on route?

Thanks Neal, will give Calshot a call. Thought they did it, but could not find a mention when I looked on the site. Found it now!

David, would be good to see you! Good luck on the Yam 90 front. Does that mean you'll block the flooding hull if all goes to plan? Hope to see you Sunday.

As I don't yet have charts, can anyone tell me the rough distance of the trip. Wondering how many extra tanks to bring.

Cheers

Neil

is there going to be a pre-determined RIBnet VHF channel that will be monitored throughout the day (as well as 16)?

lets go with channel 72 on the day for our communication but if that one is busy we can move to a less busy channel

if we aim to meet up at 9.30-9.45 on the water off of calshot with a view to leaving at 10 am

having spoken with a few folks and due to the number of boats then bring sarnies and bbq, we can stop somewhere to eat sarnies at 12 ish, and then continue round the island and head for priory bay for a bbq

i will launch at camber dock as calshot will have their busiest weekend all year so the fewer folks that launch there the better, this was mentioned in an earlier post by me. as lots of folks may be launching then get there early and give yourself enough time etc.

if you do go to calshot or camber to launch then watch out for the posts so you dont crunch your wing my mate crunched his at calshot , i crunched mine at camber

if we estimate around 4 -5 or so hours to get round the island inc stops then we should be back at priory bay for around 2-3 ish for bbq etc. the view of this cruise is a more leisurely pace with plenty of stops for photo opportunities and socialising and doing a bit of exploring.

we will stop to regroup reasonalby frequently to try to keep everyone together

for the rest of the day we will take it as it comes

if anyone has any particular places they want to visit or stop at then drop a post on here and we can work that into the trip, if everyone is happy to trot round at a steady pace with sightseeing stops then that is fine also.

getting round st catherine point and the needles can be quite choppy and rough at times and we will probably only know on the day what the water state will be so be prepared if it is a bit choppy in places, we will have a 3 and 5 yr old on our boat so will be taking it gently in the rougher stuff

any folks with good local knowledge of particular areas on the trip please step forward as your knowledge will be good to share with others etc and leading the group on some of the legs

If I manage to get out of bed in time, I may just come round to compton bay as some of my friends may be there on the beach and then head back to yarmouth via the needles (instead of joining you for the trip all the way round). Compton would be a nice place to stop off for a break as its often calm round there (good for wakeboarding) and the beach is real nice (although its a shallow beach so anchoring off is necessary and of course watching out for swimmers). There is also an ice cream van () and toilets at one end.

Hi all
As a lot of you are coming over from the mainland do you know where your first stopping /meeting point over here may be and at what time? also I know this is not a good question to ask but how much fuel are people taking I have a Yamaha 90 on a 5.8 tornado 1/2 adults plus nipper, can make up tanks to give me about 86 lt

Thanks looking forward to a great day out
