The Poole group are all safely returned without incident. Despite initial concerns about visibility, it improved sufficiently (although there were quite long stretches without sight of land which is unusal in Christchurch Bay) and it was a great turnout (23 people on - I think - 9 boats) with excellent nachos and beer in the pub. I leave the others to post pictures/video but excellent to see everyone again and hope you all got home safely.

Just missed you David. We're just coming in to the quay now.

Glad you had a nice day.

Good work on booking the weather again David...great day out there as not often I can run at WOT all day with no wave jumping

Interesting to see the shingles bank so far out of the water ....

Top company as always and HUGE nachos all round

Best bit for me was the 'appearance' of a lady friend (who was invited on Streaker but declined to come) walking into the pub....just as we all leave ...hahaha
