Another great day out. Huge thanks to Mark for organising and Ian M for the ride and letting me helm (and only getting him a little wet on the ride up the Solent). Once the tide had turned the run back to Lymington was easy and flat which really was not what was expected. I could see some 'bigger' waves at Hurst so did feel for Avocet and Burtox heading out that way.

We got back just a few light drops of rain fell so we even timed that well !

Good to see familiar faces and a good turnout despite the past 7 days weather forecast !

I did feel feel the Folly may have reduced thier portion size though (?) and it was the usual feeling of being stung by the Folly pontoon for 6 a boat even thought here were 9or 10 of us, but to be fair and as Biff said they are a seperate set up to the pub so cant hold it against the pub.

Looks like great fun event, I'm sorry now that I could only join Avocet for the first few miles across Poole Bay....

What is is this I hear about the Nachos cruise in January??

We were fine that was a really weird one I opened the Egg Whisk throttle, got it on the plane then it gradually died on me.

I think that it may be the fact that I was lusting over the speed and noise coming out of the 90 Yam (Tornado) as it pulled away from us. (Jealous)

Well it started ok and then took us back to Christchurch without any more events. I think it is running too rich on tick over / low speed as the engine was covered in carbon when we got back.

Big waves!!!!

[I think that other than us Burtox was the only one rounding Hurst to get back. Big waves or big waves! [/QUOTE]

Waves??? I didn't see any waves, that sounds like one of those fishing tales

Well it was a little bumpy to be fair

It was good to meet you all and look forward to the next trip.
