I said to gary last week that what we wanted was a 'orrible fx or a good one but not an iffy one.
And an iffy one is what we have got.
local bbc tv fx shows 5mph -- whilst bbc national one shows 15 / 18 mph, together with that strong wind warning someone mentioned for conwy and a low lurking about I am not going to do it.
It will probably be flat calm both days now but what the 'ell I'll go out in a boat somewhere anyway - try to catch me some of these big bass I've seen caught this week!

Hi folks

Just chatted to Dave and have also decided to do somthing a bit more local after talking to wife & kids.

If the forcast was flat calm we would go, but having two kids on board, one only 7 we dont want to have 3 hours with the kids scared and having to keep hold of them.

Plan to go out but do somthing a bit more local so if it does blow up or is a bit rough to start with we can make a quick return.
Plan is Peil island for a pie & pint if anyone else is round.

I know the RIB is more then upto it but just dont want to scare kids on their second off shore outing.

Sorry, we was looking forward to it but their will be many more trips. Dont want to put kids off before they even get started.

Regards Gary

Better luck next time

Never mind guys, it's the usual Manx summer....blink & you miss it.

Next w/e is the Isle of Man Cruiser Championships in Port St Mary, Sat Sun & Mon (B/H here).

If you want to hit PSM there'll be loads of boats about (admittedly mostly with sails).

After that I'm in Bangor (N Ireland) from 11/18 July yacht racing, but will be around 25 Jul, 2 Aug.

Stick the passage plans on anyway....I may use the reciprocals one evening.

Good job I haven't bought any petrol or confirmed numbers to the YC!

If anyone does go for it, let me know on 01624 621490.

Jon

So after all the excitement and expectation..............we aint goin'.
We will get the Rib's wet for sure, but not north of Anglesey.
Thanks to everyone for their help to get this arranged, especially John Whiting and the yachties who provided the Jerry Cans.
The NWR shall get to the IOM at some point in the future.
John, Aug 23/24 in Conwy if you can arrange to be there. We will supply the on-water transport.
Cheers
Ian
