This is the Harbour Masters notice to mariners.

Prety general but maybe Scott can post a better itinerary.

We have a family engagement on Sat afternoon. It is over in Bexhill and we were supposed to stay the night but I have said i drive back so I dont miss Sunday.

I may also be out for a short time on Sat morning ............. it all depends on what happens and how things go with the boss letting me out to play :jail:

Lunch at the AV sounds good Graham
