In addition to the day to day running of the Yacht you'll get to see some of the races at the Cowes Festival and the Fireworks and Red Arrows in Cowes on the Friday evening.

    Hi Paul
    Thanks for that load of nonsense. You are right I didn't know that you were going to put 8 people in a 37 footer & had I known that I sure wouldn't have signed up, nor is my maths wrong, did you ever inform me that the galley berth was £150? I would have preferred that even at £250 than sharing a berth with someone I've never met! Anyway I think those going who know me a lot better than you will know I will have fun whatever and endeavour to make sure that so does everyone else. However if you can find someone for my berth please go ahead.

    1 · July 28

  • Joe

    So £250 each £1750 per boat & not even a pillow. I would have expected to take a pillow case but who is taking the piss here?

    July 28

    • Paul F.

      Firstly Joe as usual your facts are a little off 6 people x £250 is £1500 the Galley births have been sold for £150 for the inconvenience of not having a room. For a guy that has done a lot of Sailing you seem to be under a lot of misconception about what's involved. The price was set at £250 and I seem to remember you were one of the first to sign up. I don't remember beating you with a stick and saying Joe you must take part in this event. If you are really that un happy I'll try and find you a replacement I'd rather that than you ruin everyone's weekend moaning all the time.

  • Joe

    Cheers Paul, 37's that'll be a squeeze!!

  • Joe

    Hi Paul
    Thanks for your consideration. Jo, Jackie, Scott & I would like to be on the same yacht & are they all Oceanis 38's?

    July 1

    • Paul F.

      Hi Joe I have planned to put you all together anyway. All Yachts are Beneteau Oceanis 37

  • Joe

    Hi Paul
    I understand that there are now two boats & possibly a third. Are we going to decide on the quayside who will go in which yacht with whom, as I think there are some couples who might want to share a cabin but booked on different boats?

    June 30

    • Paul F.

      Various people have requested cabin shares with friends or couples if you have any preferences please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

      June 30

    • Paul F.

      Once all people have confirmed/paid then I will put a list together of who is sharing with who.

  • Joe

    Hey Paul
    Not sure who your +1 is but you haven't done the maths lol 3 girls & us two blokes, one Skipper (probably male) ~ 3 cabins - still if the weather's good I'm sleeping on deck. Incidentally what boat is it?

    May 15

    • Paul F.

      Two in the galley birth so Yacht holds 8 people

      May 15

  • Joe

    Hey Paul, I hope this yacht is at least a 55 footer and that will only give us 3 cabins & 2 heads. To date there will be 6 of us including the Skipper. It's goin t'be cozy!

    May 15

    • Paul F.

      Yes you are correct a little cozy three cabins with two in each plus the galley birth which will most likely me me and the skipper. It's the only way to make it affordable for us mea mortals. I've done this before and it's fine you don't spend a lot of time below anyway.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
