Trip Report

Well it wasn't one of the best subscribed trips we have attended, however we did win line honours for:

Fastest Rib
Best Fuel Consumption
First to a lunch stop in Christchurch
First back out of the harbour
First to Lymington for an Ice Cream (and face wash)

PS
Best looking rib overall

Yep, you guessed it, we were the only one......

Had a great day though, nice seas off of Hurst

Myndit-Was it rough out there today,it was blowing old boots at calshot
Hightower-We finally got out about 13.30 saturday having established that to get an emergency passport,you need an appointment for which there is a waiting list of over a week.
We had a bumpy trip to Osbourne where it was very pleasant in the lee of the island.We then zapped down to Kings Quay(next bay down) where we found Mike100 waterskiing with his daughters,after making ourselves known,we then headed down to Priory bay where we anchored and lazed in the sun.
We then headed out to Bembridge ledge with the intention of finding Whitecliffe bay,but the wind was coming around the other side of the island creating an uncomfortable chop so we headed back to fishbourne for a drink.
The tide however was well on its way out though so not wanting to get caught we headed back to Calshot.
The bit where we all got soaked (and little Tim becane mutinous)was from Calshot bouy to the slip.
Sorry we missed you but didnt have a VHF and asumed we were too late by the time we got out.

Quite rough, but not scary. Just enough to make you keep you hand on the throttle.

Good test for the self bailers.....

I love the rough stuff! As you probably know I'm a novice but when taking Kohaku out last weekend it was a 28mph sw wind. This gave me loads of confidence in my RIBs ability and the only time I got a little concerned was just off South Parade Peir when a very deep chop made the prop cavitate and it felt as though I was having gear trouble (like a slipping clutch).

Yesterday I went to Cowes via Osbourn Bay, couldn't see Mike 100 but had a time limit to see a guy about a bench seat base (which I bought) thanks Pete7 for the inside info, Oh and thanks for the tow as well! I did stop and offer some assistance to two young women in their overturned skiff just off hill head, they turned me down .

Off to pack now, I'll see you all when I get back.

Glad you all had good trips. We were stuck on land doing boring home stuff and boat cleaning. Anyone got any pics to share?

Regards to all

Mike

Sorry myndit, we were held up in traffic at newbury, and then held up by the incompetent staff in the little chef, eventually got on the water at about 10:30.
Anyway, we made Yarmouth at about 11:30 and didnt see any of you there.
Then we headed over to christchurch for lunch, where abouts did you eat?

Shame we didnt meet up with anyone, but still had a good time, the sea was certainly interesting off Hurst!

Myndit, Were you a blue RIB with 5/6 onboard, and leaving Xchurch at about 13.45? if so we passed and waved by the beach hut Cafe'. It was intresting out there, we were running a Level 2 and had great fun. If your down that way soon then look us up.

Regards

Brian
