you had better hope your girl friend does not log on cos I am sure you could find yourself in the dog house and no one to play with at all

We passed about 0.3Nm off the cliffs last weekend. Waypoint is N50 34.234 W1 17.894. This is due south of the lighthouse. Neap tides and the chop only lasted for 2 to 3 mins at 15knts. Not too bad. Wind was SW F4. One area to avoid on the trip from Needles to St Cats is Atherfield Ledges - nasty sharp bits and soooo many pots.

In your opinion is Whitesands Bay a better place to lunch or at Bembridge itself ?
Whitesands would not be so busy but don't know about the shop selling food. You can beach/anchor off at all states of tide.

Bembridge beach can get crowded on a nice day and you would be restricted on the entry at LW. Also you may get charged for the privilage of beaching. The cafe does do both cold and cooked food.

On our club jaunts we tend to take "sandwiches & thermos" (as per Red Dwarf ) so we can stop where we want without the need to go ashore.

The close-up dots on the chart show where we went through the race.

as aother option ventnor habor is very good and is only a couple of miles past St cats and could be a good place to tell tall stories after st cats.

Dan is very helpful in there.

I've been in there a number of times this year and has a number of bars on the sea front.

Paul,

Is it any easier getting to shore now? Or do you still have to rely on there being someone there with a SIB?

Nope - was planning to following a butterfly - that took many days of computer power and the best brains to formulate this passage
