Nice up here too!

A couple of very nice hours blatting around the Calf of Man in my new toy....4 or 5, a few white crests. Almost rescued a 'fast fisher' on the way back but he got a tow from a SIB (yes a SIB!) before we reached him.

oo-er what a difference a day makes-freezing today until the sun came out and then just bl***y cold! Apparently another jet ski incident in the estuary yesterday when 2 of them collided head on! No injuries as it happens but some very damaged kit. Scary things and scary people.

Jetski dramas

There was a girl about 18 - launched her jetski in Laxey Harbour yesterday.

If you've ever been to Laxey you'll know that the river runs down the harbour and there's a 'wall' to separate it from the sea.

Fine going out, cos the wall was uncovered, but on the way back in she was the river side of the channel....

Frantic waving of arms as she tried to cross it further up the harbour - just got over it with a little scrape!

No idea!

Jizm,

I was on a little blue Scorpion yesterday and we may well have seen you. we were going under the Itchen Bridge around 13:00. The southampton water was similar to thew M27 with all the traffic

AP
We were out today, and yes I got soaked and as I was a passebger I had plenty of time to contemplate a larger consoloe or indeed a cabin Rib. It's a shame I don't fit into my drysuit anymore

Mark,

Were you back in Yarmouth on Sunday for a "short time" ?

We moored outside a spanking diesel Scorpion, close to the slip on the high water at lunchtime. Went into the Kings Head for a few Spotty Chickhens (Speckled Hens). Kept sending the kids out at intervals to see if it had moved, and our new tubes were scraping the walls, but it stayed resolutely in the same spot for 3 beers, 1 chili, and a double scoop ice cream from that place on the pier, and was still there when we left.

If it was you :-

a/ Cracking looking boat.

b/ Thanks for the fendering

c/ Are you one of those people that says "just popping out for a loaf of bread, dear" and then re-appears 5 days later without any bread ?

Easter Saturday

Hi all,

Well my self & Ribald managed to get on the water on Saturday morning, went round to try & meet up with Biboa guy's to follow across to Bembridge for lunch, well that was the theory.

Got round to Halying to find everyone had gone 30 mins earlier, met Brian & son Mike with New 7.5 Ribtech + 225 Hp Honda!!!
Sory cannot pronounce name of boat. We paired up & headed off to Bembridge via Eastney trying to catch up others. Well I can only say that the day & weather conditions proved very INTERESTING Force 6 Plus I belive. Thanks AP for the warning on confused seas. Although very knackered by time arived at B/Habr. I did enjoy it!!

May our way to the Vine for Lunch to find no Biboa, they had decided not to go. So we enjoyed the hospitality, Brian vouched for the quality of the London Pride. Once fed + watered we maid our return trip, wind/sea had increased but bow on still made for a great ride home. Sorry no picture to publish of journey but I think Ribald has one of the pub.

A Bloody good day was had by all 4 of us.

Regards

You say you couldn't pronounce the name of Brians new boat, was that before the London Pride or after?

Stuart,
That was before we even got to the pub

Anyway, thanks again Kevin - a brilliant trip. You should have no probs with the rough water handling part of the Advanced course

Only sad thing was that there were no PWC's out to play with - I thought those tough folks liked conditions like what we had Did see a mad (and very good) windsurfer off Bembridge though and a few yachties looking quite green and bouncing very well
