Round Isle of Wight 4 Macmillan 2014
 
Round Isle of Wight for Macmillan Cancer Support will be on 29th June 2014 weather permitting…

For important notes regarding Rib.net Cruises please read this:

VHF Channel 08

Rendezvous – Outside Wootton Creek IOW at 10:30am to 11am

There will be two groups this year:

Team Scooby 4m – 5m (ish)

Setting off from outside Wootton Creek at 11am, this is a chance for the smaller ribs to have a go in company, we are looking for a few large support ribs to volunteer to go round with them :thumbs: Cruising speed is estimated to be around 20 knots.

Team Shaggy 5m+

Setting off from outside Wootton Creek at 11:30am with a cruising speed of around 30 knots ish. We are looking for the biggest ribs to run at the back just incase someone needs a hand.

Just like the last two 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 :thumbs:

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 :thumbs:

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…

Rib. net is fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

There will be prizes for the best fancy dress in each of the rib groups if you want to take part and have a little fun ;)

Hi All

I will be definitely up for this again. Would like to leave from Calshot as I did last year if anyone wants to meet up.

Pete

I will be launching from Calshot as well, so we can run out to the start together.

I'll probably go from calshot or lym....whatever's best/needed.

Hopefully make the rendezvous this year, will just be Boat, wife and myself, launching from Christchurch.

HughN 21 November 2013 15:16

Any idea of the the total distances of the two routes? I might need more fuel than I could carry...

Dont worry - other boats can carry spare tanks etc and we will stop to allow top ups etc :thumbs:

Not sure about two routes ? - round the island one way is the same as the other .....:rofl::rofl: Do you mean to Wooten from ' a place' then round or something ?

chris.moody 21 November 2013 15:52

I think it's about 55nm all the way round,then you need to add getting to and from the start point (wherever on the circle you start) so I'm going to take 67.5 litres in my SR4 (3 x 22.5 litre tanks). That should give me a suitable buffer of spare fuel.

PeterM 21 November 2013 17:05

As a guide for smaller boats - the old 2 smoke on the SR4 did 45 miles on 30litres with 40 Johnson- at an average of about 25knts. Cruising at 20knts should give more range than this for 30l.

The new fangled 4 smoke 50 managed 80 miles on 35litres at a cruise of 20knts.

Both on 4m ribs.....hope this helps - but if in doubt - take more out ! :thumbs:

Rough weather will use more and slow the cruising speed.

Hopefully everyone knows thier own boats usage or can find out prior to next year.

PeterM 21 November 2013 18:24

Update as just spoken to Chris@ lazyblueskies photography.

He's up to shoot it for free, same arrangement as 2013. Money to macmillan. We'll stick him on a boat or two somehow :-)....

Low res examples of last year's pics are on his fb page I think.

Off topic..whos boat..a blue ribcraft is called 'Bystander'?

lakelandterrier 21 November 2013 19:50

I'm up for it again:thumbs: - not sure about Mrs T & the pups. If they don't want to do it this year I'll have spare seat(s)

If I can get down early on Sat & get somewhere to stay & keep boat secure might make a weekend of it.

Team Scooby or Team Shaggy? 5.3m 20ish kts or 30ish(-) difficult to decide. Managed to keep up last year though (despite Tigga taking a 5 mile detour into Sandown pier to find his next boat!)

I move that we should look elsewhere for coverage for this project, we need it publicised now before it's finished so people can see what hopefully they will bid on, the boat will be an historic classic before HMS gets his thumb out of his rear end

T shirts/polo shirts? seems like a good idea from the Anglesey cruise

I have a T-shirt from each year of the Anglesey cruise. With Whisper's permission I will get mods to change thread to:

"Round Anglesey/Conwy Castle for Macmillan Cancer Support - April 19th 2014.

T- shirt can just say
Round Anglesey Rib rally for Macmillan Cancer
Easter 2014

I'll then take orders from people for sizes and collect the funds at a price of £10-15 depending on cost per unit until March, order the shirts, then donate all the profit. T shirts delivered to Chris's or Conwy Quay depending on launch site. With 25 boats and 3 per boat, we could raise a good chunk of money

We'll probably try to raise what we can from friends / family/ colleagues.

We'll also probably join team Scooby if a 5.3's allowable - save pushing it to keep up with the 8ms! (although we did OK last year)

Willing to offer a spell at the helm for anyone wishing to be sponsored to dribe as many RIBS as possible.

Would offer to auction off my smaller crew members as mobile audio-ballast, but not sure there'd be any takers:whistling:

bingosucks 16 January 2014 21:37

Eeeek team scooby is growing.. money raising i love the t shirt idea ,i m thinking of a few designs and have had a printer reccommended by a mate. Im thinking i might try to get a few c listed celebs to wear them and get them photographed maybe then try for some small time corporate sponsorship i.e. my employers local chandlelers etc.. the race actually coincides with coventry s race for life so may fly a pink flag.. good to see so many people involved in such an emotive project and any ideas kindly taken on board

Hey dudes, can you check this for me?

This is to help you raise money if you want to via friends and family etc, but all money should be paid into our JustGiving Account which is on the sponsor form :thumbs:

You don't have to return the completed form.

It was our idea to run two 8.0 m's on the trip (10 passengers on each) and donate 100% of the fees for all places filled, as well as 'pass a bucket around' on the day. Does anyone have any problem with that ?

Kevin,

Just a warning, insurance !!!!! If you are hiring out seats for gain or payment you need the correct tickets to operate and the correct insurance

Steve

Not trying to piss on you parade just pointing out no matter what the good cause is, if anything untoward happens you need to CYA

Doesn't matter if it's coded and there shouldn't be a problem, they aren't doing it for profit or reward and it's going to look pretty petty taking the owners to court for doing charity work anyway, I'm a licences skipper and the boat was coded I still did stuff for lunch or free berthing, does that make me a criminal, far too much red tape to have fun these days

That is a very good point - could carry some extra fuel in case anyone runs short.

The team scooby guys in the smaller (4m) boats will need extra fuel in jerry cans.

Just as a matter of interest then, where does a 5.4 fit in; team Scooby, or not?

matt h 18 January 2014 14:48

Barrowboy 18 January 2014 14:54

I think you could join either team - depends on whether you want to play with the smaller ribs or mix it with the larger boats.

As one of the smallest ribs last year, we had to work quite hard to keep up, and more importantly keep in clean water as the big boys powered past at 35kts+.

After the first leg where we were a bit slow getting away & spent the whole time in very dirty water kicked up by 40 other boats we tried to run at the front of, and wide of the pack which worked well.

After the total refurb on the hull, paint, polish and wax, I'll be very upset if it doesn't reach 40.

Of course, I wouldn't 'cruise' at anything like that :nonono:

Team Scooby is about speed we will be cruising at 20 knots where possible. if your boat is capable of more and you WANT to do more join the shaggies. bigger boats that are happy to go slower and wish to support are very welcome :thumbs:

matt h 18 January 2014 17:21

It will do 40 but almost on empty with 1 person

Round twice or three times?

I'm hoping (if the weather holds up) to use about 25 :-) .

I love a nice economical injected four stroke.

Hi you lot, I don't mind what group you go in, northern exposure rescue may also be going with the team of the Scooby ;) these guys and girls really are mustard :thumbs:

At the end of the day we'll all meet before we round the corner to the needles so we can get a couple of pics of us all together.

Whichever team anyone goes in it's going to be an awesome day.
