Every Forumite I have ever met (including Rick and Jez) has been clutching a glass full of alcohol at the time. I do hope Mr and Mrs Chas25 aren't going to spoil this honourable tradition....

As there now appears to be no time limit to edit a post I am using my original post of Runners and Starters to keep a total list of those interested and numbers.
Please advise if you have any other formites on board so that I can list them as I believe many are encouraged to attend the Cherbourg Cruise as it enables them to put a face to a particular formite.
Please advise on numbers and any veggies. I will start the spreadsheet in September and distribute it only to personal e mail addresses. Content is usually Name, boat name, numbers, other formites on board, mobile numbers, personal e mail address, departure port, estimated date/time of departure & destination (a number go to St Vaast for Friday night)
To start this I have the details from previous years so if you have changed anything please PM me. If you do not want me to share any info I might already have again please e mail me. I try to ensure that the spreadsheet is as helpful to others as possible (many like to arrange to sail in company) but I only want to include the info that you are happy to share.
We have been so lucky with the weather in recent years for the Saturday afternoon boat/pontoon gathering but am open to suggested drinking venues where people can circulate and chat to others if it is raining. At present I can only think of the YC. Any suggestions for probably 40 people? I consider the Saturday gathering important as at the evening meal many sit with their crew (any suggestions for mixing this up?) and I want to make it all inclusive and avoid small groups gathering on individual boats that could give the appearance of excluding others.
Please also keep an eye on the other threads with crew seeking berths and fit in the extra person if possible.

By adding my name here am I commiting myself to anything?
