Event
 Boat trip in the Strait of Gibraltar
Date
4th August 2018
Meeting Point
At the moment it will be at the gates of Tarifa port.   
Time
To be arranged before this date due to tide times.
Leader for the day
Frank Hair
Hi Peeps we only have a few weeks to go and we only have 16 members saying that they will be coming we need at lest an other 3 so we can get the cheep deal.
Directions to the meeting point
Check the internet from your area.

Information about the meeting
This is an extra day for August so we can do some sea watching along with  some cetacean watching.  I am hoping to get the small boat so we will be able to look for sea birds as well as the cetaceans.  The cost for this trip will be 50 euro for a 3hour trip.  We need to get over 19 people to get this price can you send names to my personal email which is frankynohair@hotmail.co.uk
 
Clothing and food
As this is in the middle of the summer and we will be at sea hats are a must along with lots of sun screen.

OK I have just booked this for 20 people, I have to phone back on Wed next week to see what time the trip will start.  Once I have the time I will post it here.  With regards to discounts,  if we are 20 people we will all get 20% if we are under 20 then pensioners will get 30% and us youngsters will get 10%.

OK I have just called the boat people and the trip will start at 6pm but we need to be at the office at 5pm and we need to pay in cash in one go to get the discount.  This time is for the 3hr trip and this is the best time for the tides.  I have been asked to say that there is no guarantee that we will see Orcas.
Some rules for the boat,
No Smoking
No rubbish to be thrown into the sea
No flip-flops or saddles, closed shoes
There is no bar on this boat so if you want a drink you can bring your own but no glass bottles.
Lastly if you are not used to Sailing take a sea sickness pill 1/2 an hour before sailing.
We should finish at 9pm.
I will be going down in the morning and will be at Cazalla for most of the day see you there.

I have just had a look at the wind for Saturday and it is less that it is today but I will call on Friday to see if it is still on.  If it is shall we all meet in Lidl car park at 4.30 so we can walk down to the harbour which is only a short walk.
