My thoughts , a social trip, just get out for a few hours in safety , in the company of others so we can sort out any issues between us.

 

Dates ; All neap tides that will suit all , a difficult thing to do !

 

Saturday 25th May / HW 6:15 ( Swanage, a bit of a try out)

 

Saturday 8th June / HW 6:00 Venue TBA

 

Tuesday 14th June / HW 9:00 

 

Saturday 22nd June / HW 5:30

 

Tuesday 25th June / HW 7.30

 

 

 

groups A & B & C & Kayaks 

 

Group A , Boats that will need a bridge lift ( Alan will be looking into this) 

 

Group B , Boats that will be launching from a slipway .( Baiter slip gates close @ 11.00)

 

Group C  Boats that can come and go with no assistance needed 

 

Kayaks ( they will be launching from Swanage ) ( hot coffee avaible from the boats ) 

 

Using channel 6 on VHF .

 

The dates , Tuesday evening ,Saturday evenings, Tides have to be good for all.

 

I will take any club member on my boat , a open evening , first come , first served, If you have a space on yours please bear in mind this may also encourage new members to see what a brilliant club it is !

 

 

Lead boats : Stick with them if you have not been out night fishing , .

 

If you do not need help, do not need looking after , ignore the above , please try to stick with the group..

 

Suggested timescale depends on tides, bridges etc 

 

All boats must give the lead boats a call out on leaving , they must also give a shout when the leave .

 

The first Venue will be Swanage Bay Area .

 

Things you will need !!!

 

A headlamp .

A social attitude ! 

Drink 

Life jacket 

 

 

Please reply so I can sort out the logistics ( it's never that simple )( I be contacting the RNLI to keep them aware of what's going on 

 

So far we may have upto 14 boats & craft coming to play  ( please be aware we will have Kayaks attending ! )

 

Some will be in the bay late afternoon

 

 

Sorry if I have forgotten anything , it was a simple idea to just meet in Swange bay for a few hours on a summer evening , I believe a social evening needs be just that , to encourage in safety  for all , to actually meet and invite members wether they have a boat or not .

 

I strongly believe this may increase the membership , we need to look at ways to do this , have I got this wrong ?????

Hi Hooky, happy to assist with Group A boats ( those that will probably require a Bridge Lift.)

 

Two small points, contact should be by radio on Ch6, but I think it would also be useful if all boat mobile contacts were shared as a back up. There is not normally a reception problem in the likely fishing area.

 

Secondly, I would suggest that the first trip should be on a Saturday evening. This is for several reasons. Firstly, there is an extra Bridge Lift at 17.30pm. This would give us a bit longer fishing time and allow us to return to the Harbour towards dusk and  to get the 22.30 Bridges, so for the first trip at least, only the final leg in the Harbour would be in the dark. After that, let's see how people feel and get feedback.

 

I  will put up the latest Notice to Mariners and have spoken to Bridge Control who are happy for me to check there are no foreseeable changes on the day.

Anchoring !

 

All boats using Alderney system, 

 

Please get yourself  wooden coat hanger!

 

Also get a few large chemical glow sticks and cable ties 

 

Attack this to 8ft above the bouy ( attach the glow sticks to the coat hanger.) with a cable tie. When the bouy is deployed 

 

This will stop the bouy climbing the warp and going under the bow.

 

It will also make the bouy visible for retreating ( it works very well)

 

 

Please also remember to USE your plotter on way out, ( in daylight)

Lots of pots to avoid!

When is this taking place - is it me, or are the boats listed going out on Tuesdays and Saturdays until further notice?

 

 

Dates as above for the next month ( Tuesday & Saturday )

 

Dates will change the following month , trying to stick with neaps to allow for trailer boats .

 

Very difficult trying to keep it open for all, some travelling down, some can't do Tuesday's & Saturday's , some doing other stuff, , some work , can't get crew , etc , etc 

 

Some won't be able to travel out very far.

 

Some evening won't happen due to weather , skippers decision

 

Squid evenings, Sole evenings , Conger evenings , ?  

 

Im sure you can see it's impossible to keep everyone happy 🤔

Just one thing about insurance.

Not that I would but my policy is invalid if I go out after dark on my boat with no one else on board. With or without other boats.

So if anyone is thinking about going out alone, check your insurance policy.

I do not know how Kayaks are affected by this?
