The Friday was good weather and I went out on the Saturday, off Bmth pier, and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was only Sunday that was poor.

Can't say I get very excited by planes but the Eurofighter display on the Friday was breathtaking and loud

Thats the problem then I went round on Sunday - Viz was poor & there were alot of people doing really stupid things with thier anchors etc ! This year I think I will try & stay out of the main area of boat being moored . One very big Sunseeker type cruised in so fast its wake came over the bow when I was at Anchor !

This sounds like good fun - assuming nice weather is there much a novice should watch for coming from Portsmouth?

I've had a look at the charts and worked out some way points to put in my diary and then into the GPS on the day.

The only thing I ever look out for especailly is the shingles bank, but if you follow the coast round and head up the north channel after Hurst its easy to avoid.

Hurst can be unpleasant , but on the assumption its not a hurricane then a 6m rib will deal with it at any tide easily .

Thanks for that...

I had a good look at the charts around the shingles and Hurst and would plan to give them quite a wide berth.

As I'd be with my family we'd probably only do it in fine weather and anchor off the pier somewhere.

On a sunny day and a flat sea I should imagine it would be great fun to take a picnic out and watch the jets...

I was there last year in my little 4.9m
Brilliant show

What amazed me (maybe I am easily pleased) was the ice cream delivery boats.... felt like a king....
