OK, the best deal i have found is with hoverspeed. This is going across on a seacat and is bloody quick.

With 7 people (me, harj, matt oz, paul, shaun, stef and AN other?) using the 22B, Cossie Killer and STi with the STi towing my westie on a trailer i can get it for 80.72 per person if we split it equally.

If you want me to work it out on an individual basis i can but its a pain in the ass.

This is leaving the dover port at 15.30 on friday and returning sunday at either 13.30 or 15.00 local time.

what do you guys want me to do with regards to times for return journey?

I will book tomorow and pay myself, you can then sort me the money on friday.

If you guys want upgrades to first class its an aditional 10 each.

mail me or post here or see me on chat please.

Do I get my own stewardess for an extra 10? hmmm

So I havent a car and i'm not driving.......but I still have to pay for your cars?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK shaun, fair enough.

I will split it into seperate cars then, you can fight between yourselves how you want to pay.

Car plus 2 people is 125, so thats stef and friend, harj and shaun.

(thanks to info from stef we managed to save 40 per 2 occupant car going via a broker rather than direct!! The trailer cost sadly couldn't be discounted so is mega money)

car plus trailer plus 3 people is 287, thats me, paul and matt oz.

This is the best way i have come up with costing for the journey across the chanel to make it affordable.

Now if you want to do it on a basis where the driver has to pay for the cost of the car plus himself and you only pay for the individual aditional cost of one passenger then thats fine with me too. As long as i get the money to pay for the crossing i dont care, its going to meen that you get a virtually free ride though rather than sharing equally the costs.

I expect to share the fuel costs with people and not foot the entire bill myself, i think that is only fair as we are going as a group for a fun weekend away.

The crossing is now booked.

Stef your booking reference is F91021132
Harj your booking reference is F91021127
Paul your booking reference is F91020320

We are booked to leave dover at 15.30 on friday local time and return from calais at 15.00 local time.

We must be at the seacat terminal at least 30 mins before sailing!

I will be driving the 22B a fair bit on the journey, Harj will be doing the rest of the journey as we are the only 2 people insured on the 22B and have richards permision to drive the car. I will be paying fuel costs as though i was in the pauls car however. So again its up to you to work out how you wish to split the costs for fuel on a per car basis.

The fuel costs above do not include the track action, i will pay that entirely myself and give free rides as i always do. At 6MPG thats expensive but i will be getting the most fun so thats OK as far i am concerned.
