You'll have an unfair advantage for the canonball run with this much practice at all the inshore passages.

However, I think that would look even better with a whole convoy of boats lined up to pass through.

BBQ sounds excellent.

Great. I have asked Krys from the Little Rock Cafe to start digging spuds in preparation.

The Chippy have asked for a pre-order, so I shall get a clip board out for everyone to put their mark on during the course of Friday afternoon. Though I suspect it will be chilli crabcakes all round.

Don't forget that little addendum on any pre-order 'subject to weather' just in case Windfinder is right!

Sounds good.

Low water slacks are at about 4pm, so if the conditions on the day permit it might be interesting to head out with the ebb tide and run round the south of the island. Take in Chicago Pier, the Ganets on Garden Rock, Puffins on Burhou, More Ganets on Ortac and arrive at Casquettes at about 4. Then ride the start of the flood up through the Swinge.

Edit: If there is a bit of wind on the day then either the outbound or return legs could include some white water rafting.

Just had a phone call from Jim, a couple of wether sites are showing 24mph Westerlies for Thurs, backing to 12mph on Fri. That'll give us a lumping great swell on the starboard beam.

Wind mid-channel is 8 knots at the moment, lets hope it stays around there.

Well the low pressure has got as far as Wilk's house and run out of steam. No idea if that is a good thing or not??
