    You come to us and we'll come to you.
    We will need other venues once this one is concluded. Where do you suggest in Ireland.

    Jeez, wasn't expecting that.
    From Bristol Channel...
    Arklow, small marina, very friendly. Long river pontoon. Good selection of pubs/restaurants in town.
    Kilmore, small marina, very friendly, small village, good pub/restaurant near.
    What about Waterford? OK a little further but mooring is on a long pontoon right in the middle of the city.
    Keep your sunny side up :-)

    Lundy would be a fantastic location for a meeting but I wonder if some would be put off with having to anchor and use dinghys ? Also very little facilities should anyone have any mechanical problems.

    could I humbly suggest Swansea or Watchet as more central in the Channel and with pontoon berths for convenience?

    I am definitely interested in attending and will follow the threads progress.

    Boating isn't about convenience, it's about getting away from it all. Dinghys and isolation are the best part of boating. As to repairs there will be enough engineers in the flotilla to fix most things and as a last resort there will be someone to effect a tow.

    I would suggest Swansea, but that's a bit like a busmans holiday for us located there.
    Watchet sounds fine, and is fairly nuetral/central for all. Cardiff would be another good choice..but are we able to stay overnight in the Bay yet without having to go into the Marina...or perhaps the yacht club would be OK.
    I feel Lundy could be a problem re-anchoring off etc. It's not everyones cup of tea if it cuts up a bit rough.

    It's hardly ground breaking stuff if you're just going from one pub to another.
    I'm in for Lundy but not a marina crawl.

    The other issue that knocks Swansea out at least for this Spring is the works going on for Phase Three.
    Space extrememly limited for a while.

    Watchet suits me, or Swansea.

    I fully agree with you.I love nothing more than anchoring somewhere isolated and soaking up the tranquility as the sunsets.That isnt normally what you find on a meeting or rally with several other boats .

    I will do my best to attend wherever is decided on but still feel that somewhere more central and with pontoons is likely to have wider appeal

    If this is the start of something, it should be possible to suit all tastes over a period of time.
