Yarmouth Marina Saturday 8th July

Good weather today and as you can see from the attached photos Yarmouth was very busy. A lot of ribs

If I was to choose between Cowes and Yarmouth - Yarmouth comes tops

interesting if I may say so question

If Mrs A wanted to do some shopping then for sure more opportunities in Cowes . The same goes for eating again a greater choice of restaurants in Cowes.
I have in mind however Yarmouth harbour or some may say marina where we moored up by the pontoon and whilst we were enjoying in the great sunshine some chilled Proseco with strawberries we could observe the marina activities and lots was happening. Ribs rafting up, gin palaces coming and going . Water taxis running up and down the waterways. People climbing over your tubes to get to and from their ribs . Lots of conversations with fellow ribsters . All in all we really enjoyed our visit to Yarmouth. Lunch followed in The Wheatsheaf but the highlights is always a blast to the Needles.

i'd agree, bit less frenetic at Yarmouth and if the shops and restaurant choice are not top of the wish list, Yarmouth probably fits the bill although Newtown and Bembridge have a similar draw. Great way to spend a hot summers day!

Great weekend and we also we're surprised of the number of ribs in Yarmouth Saturday
Spent today in Newtown creek and I've got to say came away a little disappointed in some other water craft owners, nurmeous boats speeding ( on the plane ) leaving the creek through the the narrow inlet and onto the solent through the marked 6 knot channel - most of the offenders were RIB's

Bit quieter in yarmouth mid-morning today ( but it was drizzling ) , had a quick run out, a little lumpy in places but still managed 55 knots, finished off with a bacon and egg butty in the harbour, could be worse
