But the water does just bead off your tubes....and you can be seen from space with 'that' radar reflector.(which is probably helpful to someone..you do know it's just an empty plastic tube full of air?)

Plan for tomorrow;

Will be speaking to the SAR at about 13.00hrs tomorrow 10th August to confirm the practice is still on. They ask for a call about 1 hour prior to the RV.

Presuming it is a go will leave Lymington at about 13.30hrs and head over to Hamstead Ledge, IOW for RV at 15.00hrs

Prepare RIB, lower antenna, get bucket out of locker, clear deck space, no loose items, Gopro ready etc.

Await Helicopter and follow their instructions

Anyone coming out to play comms will be channel 8 for us until SAR arrive then 16 and what ever channel the Heli request afterwards.

gtb I have a spare seat if you need one, weathers looking good for tomorrow
