I am duty Mid-week row organiser and it is a challenging one .... please may I request that all the communication regarding the Row(s) which willl start in Itchenor are confined to this post. I will edit as required and update the plan and information as arrangements become clear.
So... This week morning tides neaps giving way to springs however we have a challenge, Storm Freya, and Jolly Roger , Sallyport and Gladys currently in Itchenor all needing to be berthed in Langstone
I am proposing that crews go by car to Itchenor and we row back to the mill slip, potentially windy and possibly wet. Plan is to row out on the slack to ebb tide with suffcient water to navigate the sands if the winds are favourable. Take the lee from Hayling and then relish the effort required to get back to the slip on the ebb tide.
Now the tricky bit is how many folk ? I do not like disappointing peoplebut I need committed folk who will definitely turn out . We cannot accomodate less than whole crews and we need to crew 1 - 3 boats . So I will list the crews below and arrange transport to Itchenor
( requesting that someone will give me a lift back after the row)
Monday : Meet 10.00 am Prompt Langstone High street
Tuesday : Meet 10:30 am Prompt Langstone High street
Thursday : Meet 11:30 am Prompt Langstone High street
I know XC weather has proved unreliable recently but the forecasts are not very inviting - would it help if I offered to bring Jolly Roger back by road ? Or could we have a bring a trailer party, I've a tow bar, so has Nigel , so have you ?
Steve...looking at the forecasts Tuesday and Thursday are the only real options I think. I can’t do Thursday but Miles and I can do Tuesday. If we aimed to set out from Itchenor at 1000 we could be over Pilsea Sands at HW and back the pub for 1200.
If it makes life easier I’m happy to either meet you all at Itchenor or obviously happy to drive to Itchenor with a car full of people, if I can get a lift back to the car later? Just a thought.
