    how mid sept? w/e 10/11 is no go for me. If I take my own boat it'll be from Falmouth so would probably need to have a slightly longer w/e.

    think twas following w/e as neaps - so if you set off 10/11 you should be fine!!
    Looking at times it'll be an overnighter Thursday to St V, a lie in, dinner at Fuschias and round to Chbg Sat lunchtime.
    We will need to fix somewhere for dinner on the Cotenin peninsula close enough for Tome and the Emsworth bad boys to arrive at in time for close of play.......Yacht club was good last year but dont know if they are free.
    Anyone got the number?
    How about a jar in PoW next week to discuss?
    cheers

    If there is a Cherbourg trip this year is it an open Invite list or does that get a bit unmanageable. If invite list is open I would be interested, is anyone looking for a spare berth? (boat takes 10 but 6 to 8 more comfortable).


    Is Keith doing a separate Forum for it this year?

    Rear Admiral Tome on the high seas at mo but able semen cutter can report his last concersation.
    Essentially the trip is open to one and all but Tom felt that extending it to St Vaast on the Friday would make it more interesting. It does not exclude anyone and those who want to meet up in Cherbourg on the Saturday are obviously welcome.
    It was felt that the strain experienced by Nick et al in trying to tie down people, organise dinners etc was too much for delicate souls such as Tom and I.
    The dilemma is that the organiser is left holding the booking and costs if people dont show and we all appreciate that weather, sudden death and SWMBO having a dicky fit are all reasons why people drop out.
    I have let the Fuschias know that several boatloads will arrive on the Friday night and they are relaxed about that. As to Cherbourg - I have made no moves there as yet but am happy to take this on if peeps want.
    Lets get Keith to do us a seperate Forum so we can see who is interested.
    I have enjoyed the last three and thought last years especially good as we met lots of nice peeps.

    Thanks, I can contact a number of rogues that would be interested but wondered if I should hesitate if there are normally a number of Formites seeking a berth. Is there normally an excess of boats or potential crew?

    It goes without saying that as an owner of an AWB I will not venture out in anything more than a F2 to accord with the good advice I have received on here.

    I note the thread "provisioning for an atlantic crossing". Do we wait for Jimi to start the thread "provisioning for the cherboug trip". I assume the standard crate of beer and case of wine per person may not be considered adequate by many?
