I believe the general consensus is some / most will probably try again next weekend. I am definitely going out tomorrow as my RIB is on a pontoon by Lym slip which is easy - and it really needs a run. Will be looking for other ribbers at the slip from 10.00 onwards. Early on I am sure it will be reasonably OK. Will join any who want to go to Yarmouth. If any have AIS I flag as INDABA RIB.

Hopefully I'll do next weekend as well.
I'll be in the Shearwater "Blue Ray"

Must remember to take my Yarmouth Loyalty cards for once - I must be due for a free visit by now!

We're making our call tomorrow morning: Mrs A is probably a 'no show' (not feeling 100% currently and is nervous about the weather); Scurvy Crew is willing (he likes nachos) but is wary and is still down the pub. I don't really want to do another gale force crossing of Poole/Christchurch Bay but would like to maintain the tradition ......

What about the other intrepids from Poole: OscarGuitar and Long John?

It's infuriating - Hurst is down to 3kts and less at the moment - it's a beautiful clear night with fantastic stars and visibility. I am hoping as it is so cold the calms will stay with us until early afternoon.

David,

I have been watching the weather over the last few days, and dispite it getting better, the afternoon wind is still forecasted to be 20-24 knots and heavy rain. Which doesn't quite have the appeal of a nice run back in the dry. If I was based in the Solent I would go but at the moment my inclination is to give it a miss today and wait for a better opportunity.

I have been looking forward to a run, lots of new kit to try out, but I think I'm going to wait for better conditions this time.

Simon

Weather actually looking not too bad right now - but as we all know can change in an instant. Definitely not up for a another gale force return. The water (rain & sea) is cold this time of year - which it wasn't last time!
