I have now received an email from Shane at The Bristol Arms:- "obviously if any of your group make it,despite the weather, they are welcome to wander down to us if they don't fancy cooking on board and order off our bar menu on the day".
So now we have options.
Regards Rob.

Petrah with three of us on board intend to join the cruise. We will eat on board given the catering problems. If there is no room left at Shotley, we can always go to Halfpenny pier.

How many boats thinking of going?
30 knot gusts from the south....
Sunday going westerly, or north westerly with rain.
Not terribly exciting.
Who is mad enough?

Hi Giles.
I have spoken to Shotley Marina today and they have room for all who have signed up. I have agreed to telephone them again tomorrow morning with final numbers and will add Petrah to the list. I don't anticipate any problem adding another one. Also they are fully expecting some of our number to drop out, given the weather forecast.
Rob.

Thank you. The weather was part of the reason for my delay in responding. I am now hoping that the wind gusts will decrease in the afternoon on Saturday as some of the digital forecasts suggest, so that it is less than 30 knots from the S. May well be a trip north under jib alone. At least wind will be with the tide. On the return, I see that the wind veers so as to blow us back home at a much reduced strength. Giles
