Will be out Fri ( with ' guests' ) & sat & maybe Sunday . Always a good free show , but I will be aimingg to anchor away from the masses - carnage last year where I was !

Really hoping the Vulcan can display - I remember as kid watching them at shows climbing out at full power - awesome to feel the ground shake - makes the eurofigher sound like a wisper !

Steve - will you be able to get hold of timings around the various timings etc ?

Pete

Hi Pete

I have some very provisional times now, but will hold back until I get better certaincy, and post then.

Will only be out on the Sunday, due to Hols with the boat in Cornwall and U2 concert on the Saturday night.

Will anchour amongst the masses again this year, but will have a sharpened boat hope to fend off all the plonkers that could not even master the basics of boat control!
Steve

Perhaps closer to the event you might suggest a decent place to moor away from the masses? I'm tempted to go, but don't want carnage....

Neil - generally just off the main display box works. Alot & I really mean alot of boats try & get as close as possible , but I reckon you see just as much from further out. None of the bay is hugely deep ( 20-30ft max generally) so you can just anchor anywhere.

Do you know what day you are planning - welcome to raft up & share a beer or two.

Pete

Not sure what this is ? a Li-Lo maybe ? Rubber-ring, arm bands ?

Sounds like good fun anyway !

Hi Richard
Depends how far you want to travel by RIB. I would stay West of Bournemouth as it will be very busy, so would recommend Baiter Park in Poole. 9 for the day, but it is a long shallow slip, so you will have to detach trailer from car at waters edge and push into water by hand to launch & recover. Be there early as it gets very busy with jet skis. Stick to 10kt speed limit in harbour.
The only other place I would recommend is the slip in Weymouth. A very good steep concrete slip. Only space for parking trailer, you have to put car into another car park, which can be a pain. Cost could end up as high as 15. Depending on sea state, take about 1-2 hours to get to Bournemouth.

The Vulcan is flying!! Saturday only

Will be there myself on Sunday, hope to see you
Steve
