could you just confirm the dates?

There's a poker run at Drivers wharf on the Saturday - if it's on I might cruise up, do the Saturday and come back with you on the Sunday - we'll be returning to Salcombe though?

You've got my number!

I somehow doubt I will be able to keep up! Seriously, if you are going from Southampton, where do you stop for fuelling? What is your endurance?

I did Poole to Salcombe on a tank with the Optimax pretty much flat out the whole way, we have 200 litres so it should be ok - Weymouth is a good place to stop although I'm not sure if they have petrol as well as diesel?

What do you call a relatively high speed cruise then?

I can do 100nm with safety margin. Starting full at Lymington, how far does that get me??? Where do I refuel??

Fast - 35-38 knots if calm, half that if horrid
