Also, Make sure you have £4 coins. Last time I went to Chichester I had to pay to launch.
The price also includes a tow home should your engine fail.

I don't mind a passenger.

Be interesting to see how the Honwave goes 2 up!

Plans sound good to me Paul.

I won't book any works for that day.

Cheers. I should be OK with 3 adults, but I don't really know until I try lol.

My brother wants to try out my boat at sea. He's only ever been in a river so has not experienced waves yet lol

His friend Lauren has never been on a Sib/Rib before and is dying to have a go.

I like Chichester, the inland water and sea so I am happy to go there. I guess we just need a time to meet up. Can't leave it too late otherwise it may be packed.

Just watch out for chichester entrance with the tide ebbing and a southerly wind. The waves over the bar can get interesting in that scenario.

Hope to get to this. no promises, but won't plan a business trip to Sofia, so at least that won't get in the way

I'd be there early to miss the traffic.

Earlier is better! :mrgreen:

Indeed mate but let's be mindful of those travelling from afar and not put them off attending ;-)
Those getting there early can always turn right/up river and go exploring whilst the rest are arriving/setting up :idea:

Soooo guy's and girls on to logistics :|

IF we are lucky with the weather Gods we may be able to cover everyone's 'wish list' :idea:

9th July (click image to expand)
Using the image in a clockwise route ....... Leave launch site, visit a Fort, land on Isle of Wight, visit another Fort, enter Portsmouth Harbour, traverse through the canal route between Portsmouth to Langstone Harbour and on to Chichester Harbour back to port :idea:
High water is at 12.35pm and those that have traversed the canals will know 'time is of the essence ' :!:
It's exciting stuff keeping to a timescale but don't let it put you off ......... but we need to be in the right place at the right time ;-)

I'd reckon that an ideal launch/set off time would be 9am .... 10am at the very latest :!: for a clockwise route so we arrive at the lowest canal bridge (railway bridge for those that have been before) as the water is receding at around 12.35-13.00pm :idea:
It'll be tight time wise and we'll have to get a 'hustle on' to remain within the timescale but it's doable :idea:

What's everyones thoughts :?: and please chime in, especially those traveling long distances to attend :thumbsup

Come what may we'll have a 'cracking day' wherever we go :thumbsup

Weather forecasts look promising :whistle

Sounds spot on for me. Thanks for doing the planning work, much appreciated!.

I am leaving Gatwick area at 7am
I will take 25L of Fuel. I may even play safe and take 30L
I will have 2 passengers on-board, I don't think the Johnson will have an issue with this but just in case I may need a hand carrying one. I have done two before without issues.
I've just finished fitting my new prop and removed my Hydrofoils.
I even have a new seat, however since I have passengers I will probably sit on the tubes / bench.

Exciting, I can't wait :-)

Don't go mad with the fuel mate ......... if you view the passage plan it's 39 miles and even with detours/diversions won't be anymore than 45 miles max :idea:

Hi All I will leave SW London at around 630 to give me enough time to get the boat sorted and be ready for about 9ish. Looks like a great route can't wait!
Might be me and my brother or just me. Either way I can take another person if anyone needs a boat.
Roll on the weekend...H
