A Late One?

Any probs if I tag along?
Seems that I have got a pass out after all
As I shall be plopping in at Lymington (assuming that I can get through all the yachties at the slip) might well come over in just shorts and tee shirt Survival bag anyone
Suspect I might be one of the first to arrive.................

Oops, i meant to say 11:15, which coincidentally is exactly what Paul was thinking. We could then meet you a bit mre centrally Andy around that time.

Paul - I'll be leaving Drivers about the same time I hope, so should see you then, or latest at Calshot Spit.

Have a great day out everyone. Unfortunately I am between RIB's at the moment andotherwise engaged, so will join you later in the season. I am encouraging the new owner of Ermintrude to get involved on Ribnet and will be based out of Christchurch.

Sitting in front of the computer drinking Tea and eating my lunch at home and not spicey Nachos. Not the way I thought today would turn out

Nice to meet up with a few of you today. Unfortunately I had to turn back halfway though my cruise to Yarmouth with mechanical/electrical/hydraulic problems. I did meet the Southampton gang, before deciding that it was too risky continuing onwards.

Hope you all had a great day.

Another great Nacho Run ! A little lumpy for my shallow V small boat - and a few interesting (read WET) moments at Hurst !

A much easier run back at 25 ish knts . I have some video I will try & edit down shortly.

Shame you didn't make it Andy - but a wise decision if all sorts of stuff was playing up.

Hope everyone got back OK .

Pete

Andy,
Any news on your probs? Nothing catastrophic I hope?
I think that most people had a good time, I certainly enjoyed the gathering. It was good to meet some 'old faces' and some new ones. I hope that the journey home went well for all. Thanks for organising the day David.
Ian

I hope everyone got home OK. It was good to meet you all today on my first run out with Ribnet members. It was nice to get the feel of the Redbay with the sea being just right for the day not too still and not too rough. It did look like the Christchurch lads got a bit wet on the trip home.

But enjoyed the day Im now looking for the next trip out.

Steve
