And of course a complete video and photographic record will be essential for all concerned... Can't wait....

How quickly will your vessel be able to cover the entire cruise up the Waveney???

Perhaps waiting at some predetermined strategic spots would be a good idea...

I have a point - just a little one - but it might save confusion.

23rd is the Thursday, CinC is Friday 24th.

Morning BB,

That plan is fine with me Smile

We will be crewing up 'B.A' late Thursday evening, I then intend to do one of two plans (As if my plans ever go smoothly)

Plan A:- Thursday 23rd Aug - Night Nav from Stalham to Stokesby or as far as I can manage weather / nerves dependant (This is also my B'day btw)

Plan B:- Friday 24th Aug -  - V.early morning departure from Stalham eta at Stokesby before 0900

Once we arrive at Stokesby we will then be under your instructions from there-on through to the WRC, where I suspect Malanka will assume Guardship duties as the OIC.

Transiting behind MTB102 - With the Waveney being wide enough as it is, and assuming we have plenty of boats in the flotilla there is the opportunity for boats to form two tight columns behind MTB102 between WRC and Beccles, spreading out on arrival at Beccles for berthing evolutions.  This is of course just a suggestion I'm throwing into the hat for M&F to mull over

Whatever is decided is fine with us.  I've just got to finalise my crew, at present we have myself, Breamlayer, our two Ladies and Macie Dog so will no doubt will bring 2 or 3 x more

Ok. Problem with the keyboard  Blush  
I got the times right just the days wrong! It's my age you know tounge-in-cheek
Yes, on the 23rd, I will offically become an OAP!!  Frown  
Then I can get back some of the money i've paid the
governments all my life  LOL

I've adjusted the draft post and will at some point
add an attachment so that the details can be downloaded
and printed off nearer the time.

I will be doing this trip in the near future so will
note the times at strategic points so we can be as
accurate as can be expected,

Summer? Where's the sun?

Dear All,

Griff is of course as usual completely correct. We (Malanka)will be with MTB102 from her arrival on the system and hopefully making sure we all arrive at the WRC together.
I think that as MTB102 is to be the star of the show and we all want to have an opportunity to see her from the water then two columns of two abreast would be a very sound platform.
The river at Beccles is plenty wide enough to permit decent separation for mooring evolutions.

I do however have one suggestion that someone with a griff hailer moors pretty early on and helps the yacht station guys and the Malanka crew direct the boats to mooring berths. Malankas crew will be on hand to help with ropes and so on. I don't think the YS guys will look forward to trying to help all 20 or so of us moor in 4 or 5 minutes without some help from us.

We are well in hand with such preparation at this early stage so I think staying flexible now and firming up definite plans later is a good plan.

Charlie please will you take control of the mooring reservations and flirt and flutter with the YS guys on our behalf and increase the number of reserved berths to 20 please. Plus MTB102 of course.
If we get many more than this to sign up then we will fill most of the basin. We are currently at 12 and only 11 will require a berth as you are over the river at your home berth. So let's see what the next few weeks bring and stay flexible.

Charlie - 20 berths Plus MTB102 No pressure there then eh?

Methinks that short skirt of yours will need shortening somewhat more!  Evil Grin

She likes a challenge. I am assuming that will be most if not all the available space in the basin. Striking early we just might get it. If not then at least we will know how many we can accommodate.
It is the Friday before the bank holiday of course, hopefully most of the northern based hire boats will be safely back up the Bure by then.

Griff, my darling, piece of cake!

I've just had a lovely chat with a nice man from Beccles yacht station called Mike who is in charge of bookings.

We have 20 boats PLUS MTB102 booked in for the Friday.  The MTB will go on the river frontage opposite Derby's Quay.  

Mike does need to know in advance how many stern/side ons are required - so if those who are going to be there can let me know, I will pass on the message.  There is also facilities for people to have electricky too if they want it and I'll need to know that as well.  

The Yacht Station have the forum web address and thread details so may be dropping by to read through the planning stages.  

Martin - they now have my phone number as contact and I'm happy to take on that side of the organisation, which will include tin rattling to collect the mooring fees on the day (PM on way shortly to you about this) I also have his mob number to update him whenever necessary.  

They would like to alert the local press too - if that is ok with you & the MTB people?   (and of course Richard, as our admiral)

Phew - job done! (for now anyway and I didn't even need to resort to the skirt!)
