Easter Sunday around the IOW

As advised on a different thread the hard core of the Littlehampton ribsters did manage to go around the IOW. We left Lampton at 11AM and arrived for lunch at Yarmouth for 12:30. The seas up to Yarmouth were very kind to us permitting a swift easy passage. Following a prompt lunch we headed towards the Needles and from Alum Bay past the Needles, St Catherine's Point, Selsy Bill the seas were forever changing , never the same pattern never the same height. A very enjoyable cruise and we all had a great time. We got back to base around 17:30.

There were a few ribs around Yarmouth regrettably not one familiar rib or face
Here are a few shots taken of Lynx, Galaxy 3 and Seahawk 3

If you are properly dressed the chill factor is irrelevant . We have been ribbing all through the winter and have not complained on the cold.

The Geckos are great and I would highly recommend them. With a full face visor you just do not feel the chill on your face and the speed does not effect the breathing

bloody bargain i would say, did he re-prop it? as i thought it really needed a 19" rather than the 21 on it,

Presumably the "Old Forts" are Deb's parents?
