Any one going from Poole area ? I would rather go in convoy to reduce any risks, the water is so cold I dont think I would stand much of a chance if I went overboard being on my own. Accidents do happen. So anyone fancy going in convoy from Poole.

I will be leaving Poole Quay at 10.45 ( assuming the weather holds) . Assuming a gentle cruise to Bramble for 12.00 , or maybe direct to Folly for 12.30. Very similar boat size /speed to you so a good match.

Potentially Avocet may be going from Poole if Grimalkin is back. If not he will be on my boat. We have done several trips 'in company' and aim to cruise from 25-30knts if the weather suits, or down to 20ish in the worse waves !

Watch this space Saturday for final weather decision etc .......

Sounds like it could be a plan

Sunday currently looks positively hot with 7C forecast!

Availability of Grimalkin is now down to Garmin repairing and returning the GPS to Ribcraft in time. Should know on Friday and if all's well am available to go to Yeovil to collect on Saturday. Will let you know but either way departure from Poole at 10.45 sounds good.

Mrs A may require more than 7C but, again, will let you know!

I may have to miss this!

A charge of 225 to launch and recover boat makes it financially unviable, despite the promise of good company

Will stay in touch over the next couple of days
