    Default plans as at tues 5th april

    ok, a cold front whams down from the NW through england starting thurday, worst on friday, with saturday looking better tho still northerly, and high pressure building sunday. Following sea most/all the way down the atlantic is probably not too bad tho.

    A reasonable plan would be to tootle along the south coast in the flattish seas with northerly on saturday at least to plymouth and possibly falmouth ready for a run directly over to la coruna sunday and sunday night.

    Ross (no1 moose) will hopefully be able to give distances soton-plymouth-la coruna and soton - falmouth - la coruna so we can see what the distances look like. Also we can go with tide down channel, so when are the times for nice downchannel ebbs on saturday eh?

    I will be on board by friday am latest.

    If some (tico?) want to join the boat saturday, then it *might* be enroute to plymouth/falmouth as we may want to get fuel before closing time in plymouth or falmouth on the saturday, ready for anytime leaving on Sunday - otherwise its perhaps 2 hours to fill up on sunday morning in plymouth (or falmouth). 400ish miles to la coruna should be arrivable 22 hours later early monday morning for 3 hour fillup.

    Another question for Ross's magic computery thing then - what are the tides doing in la coruna on Monday if we have to use the tidal fuel pontoon?

    Default what to bring

    um, i think i am ok toolywise, really. passport + sleeping bag are "must haves". the boat is MCA coded so I have loads of safety gear like lifejackets, more lifejackets, liferafts, spare liferafts. Make sure you can take back anything you bring as carry-on luggage on aeroplane.

    er well up to you. I plan to be able to walk on with handbaggage on the return flight- hence the caution to tico who seemed to plan to bring various tools which wd have to be in the hold. But if you're ok to have massive loads of luggage and wait for carousels, bring what yer want. er, exactly how many clothes do you need?

    don't bring towels for gods sake, the boat is drowning in towels.
