It seems one of the crew mother has died and can not participate. Here is the details of the trip. Please respond if still interested.
We are leaving the 13th from hayling island at low tide, unfortunately we will not be in town until the 12th, so our meeting before departure would be short. We are boots on ground, have a food delivery
from Tesco. Do a quick systems check on electronics
, get fuel
and we are out the door. We are going to scale the coast towards falmouth where we will launch southwest before heading back south east to come in just south of the spanish ridge. Myself and Steffi, have not done a Crossing before. We will have SSB
, findmespot tracking, GPS
, tablet integrated weather
fax, as well as other gadgets along. We would require a list of items that you would like to eat in order for us to provide for your taste. As well as shared expenses on the said food
, as well as shared cost of fuel(which shouldn't be much). As well as shared cost on any mooring fees
up the south coast of britian. We will not be able to plot a desired weather
routing until closer to departure, but will keep you posted on the extra information. If you have any weather monitoring experience, or have the time to look/learn this information it is a great skill to acquire and I highly recommend.
