Going to see USS Harry S Truman

There a largish Aircraft carrier in the Solent off Ryde at the moment.

It's called the USS Harry S Truman and has got all it's toys on the deck!

I'm trying to round up some folks for high tide Saturday.

Won't be back on the PC till saturday night so keep your eye out for some fellow Ribbers.

The last one I went round I couldn't get within 1/2 mile never mind 200 mtrs. Coastguard, MDP and US Navy very weary of small high speed craft. So be warned.

Three of us launch from Chichester Harbour on the high tide and will then make our way over to the carrier. We can meet you in that area.

I took this from Stokes Bay last night. On the full size one the detail is a lot greater (I'll get on my website soon!)

Do they know they are off Ryde? Or were they heading for Iraq
