  • Hi Alan. That timing sounds good, obviously I should be a little bit faster in getting over to Ashlett, with the benefit of being able to make a direct course and in theory a top speed of 17knots possible but not likely! Of course as it's Steve's birthday too, it would be rude not to luncheon in the pub, especially as he offered to buy a round (tongue in cheek). On a serious note I...

  • Hi Alan, I have been contemplating this Saturday. However I currently cant get my wanderer out of my garden due to my helpful neighbour putting a skip across my gate! However I do have my 12ft motorboat that I usually use on the Thames in my garage which I can get at. What time are you thinking of launching and getting to Ashlett and or Calshot? I have never been to either by boat...

  • I laughed when I read your post about it too Alg, but I was too polite to say so!

  • Hi all. As you may have noticed, I have been quiet for a while but I injured my finger again (long story). So we are currently away in our motorhome enjoying my forced time off. I cant open Len's attachment either. Alg, sorry to hear that your engineering isn't up to the job! (joke). I can pop down and take you out for a sail soon, no worries. Hope you all enjoy Oxey lake, I did...

  • It used to be run by a man called Nigel, sadly he died only a few months ago. Nigel's daughter Julie, her husband Charlie and there son Nick have gradually become more involved over the years and now for obvious reasons have full control.

  • I will bring a disposable BBQ and meat for myself, every one is welcome to use the BBQ for the food they bring. As for launching at Redcliffe farm, they are not famous for being very easy going but I do know them of old and I'm cheeky, so I will try to negotiate a 'group' discount for launching, they probably wont be amenable but I will ask anyway. (my dad had a mooring on the...

  • Alg. Chariots of fire? You need the soundtrack playing when launching/recovering. Tom

  • That's great David, I'm looking forward to it. I am tempted with launching at Lake road but to be honest I really struggled in Lymington pulling my boat up the slipway singlehanded, so I'm conscious about being on the shingle and stuck and unable to get my van under the height barrier to pull it out easily I will aim to arrive at shipstall for the high tide around 4pm (I think from...

  • Sorry to jump in first on this. I thought I would let you all know my plans. I am aiming to Launch from the campsite at Wareham, however the cost is not cheap £21 to launch and park for the weekend but its a good enough slipway and the parking is fairly secure, which is a slight worry for me as I tow with my work van, tools inside etc. I am hoping to launch around 12pm, which is...
