Drysuits

This might seem like a stupid question being hot and sunny at the moment. But will anybody be wearing drysuits on sunday. I have one but will be in shorts and T Shirt. Anybody recomend a drysuit for the south side of the island or should I just stick with summer order ???

Regards Nick Reis.

salopetts and boots and sailing jacket + dry suit in the front locker
i hope the dry suit and wet weather gear will stay in the locker and the sun
cream will be the only protection needed all day

Biggles .....There are a few of us Launching from Calshot and we were going to come over to you, but if your comming our way we may as well hold on and wait for you to get to us, so far its myself, Andy Beach and and my friend Chris parker.

As soon as your on the water call me up on channel 72 call sign TANGO and confirm what your doing.

See you out there.

Food

As Hightower was saying he is not keen on taking the barbeque. Is the plan for us all to take disposable ones and stop for lunch somewhere round the island?

I dont think doing the trip in one foul swoop is going to be easy we are going to need time to rest and recoup/regroup.

PS Disposable barbies dont rattle!!!

See you all sunday

Richard,

If I come along - and with the weather as it is there is every chance - I will be coming from Hamble. It would be simpler to meet up with you guys at Calshot than to drag down to Lee. What time would be good to meet off Calshot to wait for the others and what is a good, easy to find place - I've never been into Calshot - normally just passing.

Duncan i've never launched from calshot either and will be relying on my friend down there, he's said that as its spring tides at the moment we wont have a problem launching from calshot, my boat will be spending the weekend in the activity centre's locked compound, i'd suggest getting on Sunday and calling me up on channel 72 (call sign Tango) and seeing where we are, i've checked boat launch and it doesn't look like there is much around there so it should be easy to spot us if your heading in the right direction for us, look out for three Avons, 1 orange and two grey.

I was down at Calshot last weekend. There are a few bouys just off the slipway that a group of RIBs were rafted up to .If you are coming from hamble /lee on solent The slipway is right at the east end of calshot spit on the fawley side of the life boat jetty - could be a usefull meet up spot ?

Hi

Agree with Philip, although i've not been there before it shoulds like a good plan, we were planning to head across to meet up with the others from Calshot but it seems they are going anti clockwise and Calshot will be there first reference point, so i'd suggest we (the clashot lot) meet get and aim to be on by 09:30, call up Biggles and tell them our intentions are to wait for them at Calshot, first thoughts are it will take them 20 minutes or so to cross from HMS D to Calshot so we wont have to rush about too much !!

If the worst comes to the worst and we miss them then we'll stay in contact and catch them at the needles or yarmouth.

Richard
