    Default East Coast -> Ostend Scuttlebutt booze cruise

    It goes against 20 years of naval training - never volunteer for anything.

    After hinting something like this in "the other place" I've been getting some positive reactions.
    So, here goes... I'm willing to organise - with any other volunteers - a Scuttlebutt cruise to Ostend. Going by my previous experience May or early June would be a good time.

    So, couple of questions:

    1. When do we want / can we go?
    2. Who would sail his/her boat?
    3. Who requires a berth?
    4. Who would be interested in a meal together?
    5. Who wants duty frees (General Stores)?

    Robert - the ever charming RNSYC HM - will cut us a deal on berths if there's more than 5 of us, and we let him know well in advance when we would be turning up. There are quite a few Bank Holidays in Belgium in May, so it's likely to be (very) busy if the weather's nice.

    I'm willing to act as initial point of contact for this whole thing (HM, General Stores, etc..). Won't refuse any offers of help should the event get too "big".

    It's up to you now.

    Might be worth posting a "pointer" to here on Scuttlebutt...

    Well done for taking the initiative.

    I'd be interested in taking our boat to Ostend early season, and a meal sounds like fun.

    We are based in Ramsgate.

    Just spoken to my good lady, who's keen on the idea. So, if anyone would have a couple of berths, we'd be grateful.

    At this stage, we've no committments other than fetching daughter back from Uni late May, so we can be flexible. A meal togther would be good, to put faces to cyberpeeps.

    If the South Coast lot can do it, I'm sure we can!

    Being based near Lowestoft the RNSYC is not too far away, so if the timing is right and I am not overseas, then I may be able to offer self as crew for someone. Could do with a few miles under my belt, whilst working towards DS.

    If developing boat purchase is completed in time, then count me in as a skipper... otherwise, I'm on as a crew.....

    Given this, would pref a later date, as then we are likely to have boat of our own to use....

    Just a quick aside - RNSYC in my previous post stands for Royal North Sea Yacht Club -> Ostend. NOT Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club -> Lowestoft

    Hi. I'll keep a watch on this depending on dates/circumstances I might be in. Based gillingham, would meet @ Ramsgate.
    Good idea, thanks for taking the initiative.
