Seriously though: I'm looking forward to it. Am planning on being in the water by 10.00 am with Blackroady as crew (unfortunately Mrs A can't make it) and hope to meet up with Maximus and Matt H to cruise over together from Poole. If they can launch at Baiter, it's only 200m from Parkstone Bay where my boat is kept. Am more than happy to have extra crew (especially of the fairer sex) if wanted. (Blackroady can entertain them 'cos he's got a big one too - even if he doesn't like to use it in the winter!).
I've not used mine for a month or so now - so I'm guessing its all gone soft & saggy in the cold . Maybe I'll pump it up tonight .................

I am very much looking forward to it - regardless of weather - just hope my legs wil be up to it & I can still walk on Sunday !

I can confirm I am more than happy ( if a little out of practice) to entertain the fairer sex in the back of the boat while David does the important work of steering the boat !

Baiter is nasty to launch from, to gentle gradient and too shallow, unless its dry suit time, its a pain in the arse to push the trailer in the water , Maxi metioned some where else???

if boats could talk they would tell you to get out there and have some fun, it's only us humans who give up.

So far for Saturday 5th of December we have...

Chris +1
Maximus +1
Tim M
Jimbo
Rogue Wave
Matt H
250Kts +1
Hightower +4
Neil Harvey +1
Biffer +1
Knot Yets
Andre +12

Latest reports on Metcheck & BBC looking reasonable for Cowes with sunny spells and moderate winds.

The Folly were cool with me calling them first thing on Saturday to confirm so I think we should take a final roll call tomorrow pm to see who's up for a choppy solent run and who's up for sitting at home looking wistfully out of the window

I'm still up for it! I'm nursing a bruised back muscle which is getting better and better all the time, but I'm almost 100% sure I'll be attending. As for crew, one has dropped out...But I have a plan for a replacement and my only other crew members that are doubtfull are my 8 and 12 year olds. But that'll depend on my finger and Bramblemet.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to bow out of this one guys.

Not because I'm wimping out of the weather; rather I'm working in Southampton. If you see a frozen instructor on a PWC, give me a wave
