Ouch! Very sorry to hear that and hope that all goes well with the surgery. Thanks also for taking the trouble to post when you've obviously got other matters on your mind.

I have amended the Participants' List and will post a further (final?) version tomorrow.

Any further details or participants in the meantime?

David

Hi David - sorry been rather poor on keeping this up to date .

It will either be mini in the mini ribcraft ( If I get all my bits done to it ) - and you must have a go in it as I think you'll enjoy it !

Or me + 1 in Streaker if I don't get things done in time !

Launching from Lymington as I don't think an epic from Poole would go down well for a new GF as an intro to boating ( especially as I still have 'moments' thinking about the return from Cowes to Poole with you ( but I secretly loved every second !))

Pete

Have assumed that you won't get things done in time!

Look forward to meeting the new GF and agree that a repetition of our last crossing would be an unfortunate intro to boating for her. Your "Oh dear!" as we climbed the one wave which started to break was a classic of understatements!

Updated List of Participants is now attached and Yarmouth Harbour and The Wheatsheaf have been duly notified of our visit. Both wish us all a safe trip and fair weather and are looking forward to seeing us.

I suggest that anyone coming from Poole and wanting to travel in company RV by Bell Buoy (off Royal Motor Yacht Club) by 11.30am. Comms CH08.

David

Arrgh - I've been gazumped! The misses has now arranged some stupid trip to the alps! I may not survive the outfall if I attempt to challenge alternative arrangements for the Christmas period. (Probably her turn to decide after a decade of maritime adventures instigated by me).

PS Anyone got spare ski gear to loan? Mine is 80's dross (and mouldy) - I may be laughed at on the slopes!

Weather forecast for Sunday currently OK: cold but dry with a moderate North-Westerly wind.

Subject to any further last minute amendments, here's what would appear to be the final list on which I will base the figures to The Wheatsheaf and Yarmouth Harbour on Saturday as requested:
