today we had a fantastic trip.

The weather was blowing a westerly 7.
We launched from Calshot and headed for Yarmouth. Not possible too wet too much waves. We went over to Cowes and with the wind just south of west took a little shelter by sticking close to the island shoreline.
Arrived Yarmouth - beautiful sunshine fantastic. took 1.5 hours.
lunch and stick of rock purchased (proof for wife back home!) No dolphin today.
Trip back was brilliant westerly winds blowing 30 knots tide running to to the east. engine trimmed up all the way. we (my 10 year old son and I) had the best run ever. the spray creating our own rainbows.
Recovery of heavy 6.3m boat difficult in conditions.
Arrived home (Northamptonshire) wet clothes now in washing machine.
Navman wet electronics not at their best - hope they dry out

If you do the island this week - it will be a real achievement.
Ribbing at its best.
Paul

I tried to do this trip the other day but it was more than a little wet in my 4.1m! Ended up heading for home half way accross. As you say recovery on that little slip is very interesting when the wind blows; I recovered collecting a huge amount of seaweed and half a bucket in the process.
