Hi folks!

we are 'booked in' at Bembridge for Saturday 29 April. HW at the Harbour is at 14.11BST.

With a 1.5m draft entry about 2-3 hours either side of HW should be possible. I have Bembridge advised that most people will be arriving at about 15.00 hours.

I suggest that we all congregate at the Sea Lady for a 'pontoon party' with a light snack and drinks. (If anyone has a larger vessel that they would like to offer I would be grateful). We make our own arrangements for the reminder of the evening. Local restaurants may be rather busy Saturday night.

On Sunday we de-camp for Emsworth. HW at Bembridge is at 14.45BST, so I suggest that we aim to depart no later than noon.

Entry into Emsworth Yacht Harbour is over a sill. At Emsworth Yacht Harbour HW is at 15.31BST. Latest time of entry is 1½ hours after high water ie. 17.00BST. Five hours should be sufficient time to cross the Solent!

There are several local restaurants and pubs. I would be grateful for any preferences so that I can make advanced bookings.

We will probably be allocated the visitors' pontoon. See http://www.emsworth-mari...s/Pdf/Harbour%20Plan.pdf for details. Some yachts may even be allocated their own pontoons!

On Bank Holiday Monday the afternoon high water is at 16.26BST – departure is from 15.00BST onwards.

Attendees as of Wednesday 26th 20.00hrs:

David Bamber Sea Lady Bembridge and Emsworth

Mike & Helen Slade Juno Bembridge only

Clifford Miller Abacus Bembridge only

John Clark Nosey Bembridge & Emsworth

Hilary Martin by road Bembridge

Graham Ebb Betty Blue Bembridge and Emsworth (Home port)

Julie Stanley Shockwave Bembridge only

Tim & Margaret Reeder Speedwell Bembridge and Emsworth

Richard & Gillianne Sills Delphine Bembridge and Emsworth

Mike Lockwood Lucky Devil Bembridge and Emsworth

Paul Bowman Gemini Bembridge and Emsworth (Home port)

Adrian & Pam Lumb Ariana Bembridge only.

I have asked for two spare place to be made available at Emsworth because a couple of people were not sure whther they are able to come or not. Anyone else wishing to reserve a berth at Bembridge should contact the harbour directly.

I will be departing on the early high tide on the Monday, sitting it out until low water on a waiting pontoon in the harbour, and leaving to go east to Littlehampton.
