Just had an email from Dan at

Just had an email from Dan at WMV and he says the 7 berths that are together, are now reserved for the following skippers and their crew: Rick, Mick, Keith, John R, Jonathan, David K and Roly.

If others are hoping to use WMV as a base I would advise you do so asap.

Yes, the marina berths are

Yes, the marina berths are now all booked

Dan said he could put us on a waiting list for other individual spots but he couldn't commit to availability

So we have booked Hera onto the Ferry Nab jetties 24 July to 31 July

It's only a very short walk between the 2 locations - in fact the picnic benches at the jetties might be a good place for a BBQ assuming they still allow this?

Great to know you are booked

Great to know you are booked in Mike. The marina also has a lakeside bbq area - we could have two bbqs.

Hi Quentin,

Hi Quentin,

Re Big Mac - Windermere.

Just a note to say that all my booking arrangements are now complete for 'Sonny' at WVM, for 7 nights 24th - 31st July. Thanks for all of your help and postings. Let's hope for some decent weather for our week!

The only issue I haven't resolved is concerning the boards upon which to stick the registration numbers. I could not find any reference to obtaining or making these boards on the link you provided? Is there a strict methodology for the design to which I must conform, or can I just use a bit of white plastic each side hung by a bit of twine?

Cheers,

John Richardson 'Sonny@ 26M

Hi John, good on yer for getting sorted. You might get some help from the link above. I think improvised display boards are perfectly acceptable so long as they accommodate numbers of the right size and can be clearly seen. As you say, some stiff cardboard, sticky back plastic, twine ties and Bob's your uncle.

Mike and Bobby have now signed up so we are 9 definites so far. It would be good to hear from any new Mac owners looking to build their experience. Roly is offering his WMV berth to anyone who would prefer the security of the marina....he will move to Ferry Nab marina (3 mins walk) or onto a swinging mooring to accommodate.

Really looking forward to seeing you again John.

sooo...

I will be out of the country until around the time the event is to start. I am not sure yet when we will be returning. Would it be better to book in now, knowing that I will most probably have to cancel some of the days, or just wait until I know, which may not be for another month or so?

Thanks in advance for all of your sage advice!

I would probably hang on

I would probably hang on until you know what you can do. I reckon you will always be able to squeeze your way in somewhere - I know several places where you could tuck in should all marina berths be taken. My sage advice would be to wait until you know exactly when you'd like to arrive and then call the lake wardens at Ferry Nab 01539442753 and book a pontoon or swinging mooring. Hope you can make it David.

Hello Quentin,

Hello Quentin,

I'm not sure if you need to know but I have one more to add to my crew, making 3 in total.

John,

John,

You might need a bigger boat...:) At least, tow a dingy for the beer, etc...
