We should be fine for water, tides are not far off neaps and HT is around 7pm. The marina has water at all states of tide.

Aranah booked at Bembridge.
I really appreciate the organisation of this event. Thank you.
I plan to come to Chichester for some 4-5 days. I will not have a boat and would like to ask someone to give me the possibility to take part in the day trips. Maybe to the Ile of White or so...
I will drive by car from Germany to Dieppe at the northern French Coast. From Dieppe I will take the ferry to Newport and then ride my bicycle the 60 miles to Chichester where I will stay in a b&b or Hotel. I hope that we will have good weather and enjoy the company on the boat(s) and maybe even in some pub.
Looking forward to meeting you all in person, face to face.

I am looking forward to some water under the boat and wind in the sails and maybe a beer in the hand ;-)
Roly tells me that he drove to Chichester marina last week to check things out, and his satnav directed him down some very narrow roads, not good for trailers. So for those coming by road, here's what to look out for.
You'll be driving East on the A27 towards Chichester, and your satnav may direct you to turn off on the A259. If so, ignore it, continue to the next roundabout and turn right onto the A286 instead. This road takes you directly to the marina.
Star is booked in at Bembridge.

So is Logan's Run
What's the situation with the trailer storeage that Roly found. I didn't get an answer from Tim at Bosham despite calling a couple of times.
We have arranged a location for trailers at a camp site only a short distance from the marina.
It is Ellscott Park camp site, Birdham, PO20 7QL, email: email@example.com, tel: 01243 512003, owner's name: Mike Parks
The trailers will be parked in a corner of a camping field, Roly has been to visit and is happy with the arrangements. We've agreed £20 each for the week.
If you're coming for Wednesday - Wednesday then your trailer is booked in, no need to do any more, just take your trailer to the site after launching. See below for payment.
However, if you're planning to arrive earlier or leave later than the organised week please do phone him directly to make arrangements. Just say that you're one of the MacGregor owners that Roly spoke to him about, and that you'd like to arrange a slightly longer storage period. Mike will want an extra £3/night for each extra night above the 7.
Payment in cash - correct money please - is required on arrival, so please make sure you're prepared.
