I've got a late entry...Michael (m589) and I have decided to take Clover around again this year. Hopefully we will be joined by Michaels nephew Daniel.

 

You have your title to defend - good luck Sarah

I see the weather is limbering up for proper Challenge rainstorms....

 

Team PoppyCat requests correction of their name in the list, otherwise they will moor Peckham Poppy on the water point at Hockley Port for the duration to sabotage any turning and photo attempts

Ah, i was just about to post...

 

Team HALSALL is out sadly. The weather has put us behind schedule and the boat won't be ready. See you all next year hopefully.

Boooo!

Things to do (apart from the 1001 ongoing boat jobs which need doing).

 

1. Buy diesel.

2. Buy stern gland grease.

3. Buy beer.

4. Plan a route.

5. Pray to the rain gods.

I still don't know about our entry, we've had all our diesel thrown away and the tank cleaned again, but for the last 2 months we've averaged two breakdowns a week and I have no confidence that it's totally cured now. And to add to that we came up the 21 this morning and then got rammed by a hire boat at Factory Junction so now we have a very big dent in the side of the boat and a selection of minor breakages plus Debbie got hit on the head by something falling off the shelves and may have to go and be stitched up as it's still bleeding. I'm on the verge of giving up !!!

We didn't exchange any details because the hire boat sped off and when I yelled them to stop they said they couldn't hear me over their engine. I even ran after them once I'd tied up but I couldn't catch them. But I did get their name (since confirmed by other boats) and have contacted the hire company who simply told me to contact THEIR insurers direct, so I passed the details on to MY insurers instead.

 

I'm waiting for Debbie to get back from the Health Centre here, and hoping it's soon before they stop serving food in the Fountain.

Anyone know of the best way to get to Star City via train/public transport?

 

 

Well, as we're both on the same team... ...Get to Brum and I'll drive. I'm still moored at Sherborne Wharf if you can get there.

 

Rob

 

 

Might be worth coordinating with dyad, where are you planning to park will star city allow overnight parking?

 

I was going to get a train to Aston as it's the closest to Star City but I'd rather drive all the way if there's parking.

 

Where exactly is the moorings, I can't tell on google maps.

There is parking there outdoors and in a multi-storey, how safe/secure for overnight I would not like to say.

Regarding the location of the moorings take a look at the picture the red crude line shows the entrance and where the moorings actually are, the blue line shows the multi storey car park.
