Guys,

What a great weekend, thanks all for making it such a laugh and what a fortunate weather window we had.

There were some casualties, with Whisper snagging his anchor and having to say goodbye to it over Bembridge ledge, which then followed with his lobster pot. The massive bird sh!t on his Tent clearly didn't bring him any luck....there's always another day. Anyhow, cannot believe I forgot to set up the Go-pro especially for the rollers over the Shingles, but I did get a few bits, too late to do any editing but I will post up some pics

Looks like you guys had a terrific time, were did you find those waves?? Sorry to hear of your losses Alex, where did you place the Pot? If you PM me, I might have a replacement anchor you could buy off me.
