Excellent day up here too, hot, very sunny, and not a lot of wind-my sunburn hurts!
Silly season has started though - daughters lifeboat had two jobs yesterday. Blackpool boat had a call last night and today have been to a particularly nasty accident with a jet ski colliding with one of the blackpool piers. A fatality and a serious injury apparently - ok some are a pain at sea but nobody and no family should have to go through that sort of trauma.

S'alright for you lot on the coast innit. I'm stuck here inland, with nowt but the hills on fire for entertainment. Certainly great weather though, been talking to people from the continent and they're jealous as anything.

Stuart

I was over in the Solent and parked up in Yarmouth for a short time.

The day started off with me rescuing a boat that had run out of fuel. They insisted on giving me 50 so all-in-all I was up on he day. Now that doesn't happen very often!

And I have a nice red face to remember the day by.


Cheers

Mark

It was a cold night for an open boat or maybe you could just steer her from outside the cabin whilst sunning yourself on the aft deck ,till the weather changes.It was a brill day for all boating

I was out there yesterday for about 5 hours, 11am to 4pm ish. Loved it. I did see an Avon rib under the toll bridge, was that you Stuart? I was in an orange tornado with light blue tubes. Mostly I cruised about the river has I had my sprog with me but did venture down southampton water once or twice. Great day, water still very cold though!

Me wife's been up, just south of Mallaig, staying with a friend and her parents. The weather was so nice, the friend's mum went swimming, and she's 93 years old! Jeeeez...
Looking across to Skye, I'm sure we could see PF travelling by with his wings out .
