Brought forward information re: MTB102 & RASC Humber

Just wanted to say that this CINC is not limited to  boat owners.

For non boat owning members, or boat owning members whose boats want to stay on their river moorings, there is an opportunity to go to sea on either of the two historic vessels, namely the MTB 102 or the RASC Fast Launch Humber.  

At sea you will have a chance to see the CINC flotilla run out of GY all the way down into Lowestoft harbour, through Lake Lothing and into Mutford Lock, before joining in with the Official NBF CINC party celebrations at the Oulton Broad Yacht Station afterwards.

The possibility of a high speed run at sea on one of these two boats is another experience for lucky passengers on MTB102 & Humber.

Of course, nothing is for nothing in this life, and a small donation to MTB Trust of £25 per passenger will be needed to cover the fuel and running costs of these two ships for the trip.

If you are planning to arrive at the event by car, then you can get aboard at Lowestoft and you can enjoy the round trip.

If you would prefer to get board either of these wonderful historic boats in GY and disembark at Lowestoft then arrangements can be made to pick you up in GY.

Please send me a PM to book your place on the MTB or Humber. It will be a case of 1st come 1st served. There are only 12 places altogether so don’t delay. Book today.

Word from Richard B with MTB102 and Humber - He is quite willing and well practiced at passenger transfers at sea.  Therefore those passengers booked onboard MTB102 and Humber will be able to change over at GYA so all will have the opportunity of travelling on both craft (wx permitting of course)

Also important note as reminded by the Lady Corsican "every passenger travelling on MTB or Humber should be wearing an "in date" life jacket". So you've been warned, if you are going out on MTB or Humber, Sonia will expect in inspect your life saving gear/equipment!

In the next few days I will publish the list of those who have been successful in their applications for MTB & Humber.

I know this has been arranged around a certain date, but have you studied the tides. It will be coming up to springs and departing Sat. morning, unless we go early, we shall be pushing a 1.5-2.5 knot current.
A departure time from the Yare entrance at approx 0830 would be OK but would be pushing the tide all the way down the harbour. Any later and we would be pushing it the 6Nm to Lowesoft.

Regards
Roger

Berth Reservations,

I have been in touch with the staff at Oulton Broad Yacht Station as promised.

I have now reserved 25 x berths, that is the lot of them from 1400 on Sat 12th for members of the NBF with their craft arriving through Mutford Lock and the Flotilla coming via the Waveney

I have to send a list of boat names to the HM at OBYS which I will do today.  If we go over 25 - then craft signing up will be able to use the Wherry Hotel berths.

Just for the record, Griff, Broadland Dream is already booked in for two nights, 11th & 12th. (to facilitate transfer to MTB 102).

Ok,

First post updated.

New section - Berth reservations - pse check to make sure your boat is listed or still on the list if it shouldn't be.  Boat names e-mailed to the staff at OBYS.

This weekend I'll commence looking at the NAVPLAN proper with regards to tidal streams, The bridge lifting times at Lowestoft harbour, I'll need to liaise with Skippers of MTB AND Humber in the normal manner

More to follow

Is a thread that most of us are well familiar with by now. Created, filmed / screened /edited by our very own 'LondonRascal' or Robin to most of us.

Robin as some of you are aware has got ambitions to become a boat owner anytime soon (make that anytime) but it is unlikely to happen before the salty trip.  I'd very much like him to film and record the event.
Robin would very much like to do the same

Problem - 'B.A' is fully crewed and he needs room (not a lot) and a high vantage point to do his stuff.

Therefore going on the old saying of  -  'You never get if you never ask'  -  I'm asking on his behalf.  He is far to reserved and polite to ask himself whereas I'm very opposite and more in your dish and doing the straight Yorkshire speak thing.

Please would any skipper (Salty side) that has room in/on his/her wheelhouse for Robin to be onboard for the day to do his thing?

Accommodation is not an issue as Robin will book himself into a hotel for the Saturday evening at Oulton Broad (But if anyone has a spare berth for his svelte frame for the Saturday night - even better)

I'd be proper miffed if someone during or after the event said 'If only you had asked me Griff'

Assuming someone steps up to the plate, the logistics can be worked out before the day.

Thanking one and all in advance,


Griff

Thank you Griff for posting this Smile

For anyone thinking about accommodating me on the day I am well trained and bring little with me and have my own life jacket. If you personally did not wish to be on camera that would be fine too - the boat would be effectively a ‘floating tripod’ to get footage of the event from.
