D-Day 60th Flotilla and USA Carrier - Solent

This should be a great weekend for RIBing in the Solent.

See -

http://www.qhmportsmouth.com/index.p...&art=89&seld=1

Anybody fancy a trip out early Saturday morning before RIBEX. We will be leaving the camber dock old Portsmouth at 8am with camera at the ready, as the small ships channel will be closed at 8:30. We will follow the flotilla south past the island before returning home. Our boat is called STING if anybody wants to meet up and say hello.
