Cowes Week Fireworks Friday 17th Aug

Anyone thinking of this?

Slightly concerned about the trip back to Poole in the dark and avoiding the lobster pots. I guess, just follow the outward track on the chart plotter back. Will be pretty dark as it's a new moon I think.

Will definitely go if the weather isn't prohibitive.

Another hazard, I have been told, is boats that do not want to observe the speed limit.
Apparently they turn the nav lights off before breaking the speed limit, so they cant be detected
I am just trying to picture it. Loads of boats whizzing around nearly invisible to each other.

Yep loads out there who ignore speed limits, drink and no lights and also race to get back to their moorings, Many charter vessels wait half and hour to allow this madness to fade away into the night

Yes, I hope to be there. Launching Lymington. Longjohn, you are right, follow your outbound track, however, make sure that on the way to the event you give any hazards a wide berth!

Longjohn, we have done this from Poole and Lymington several times. Each time we do as you state, however tides and winds can shift pot marks.
The way I view it;- the sea is vast and the marks are very small, the chances of actually catching one is remote. Arm yourself with a couple of good knives in the event of not being able to unwind a line, relax and enjoy the experience of night passages.
Might even do it again this year from Poole

We take the offshore route from Old Harry to the Needles, not likely to meet any pots that far out or other boats although its a little more exposed to the West weather you'd also avoid the races around Hengistbury too by going out further.

Probably not as busy as you think - from previous years experiences
