It was great Ian had a super weekend.


Also Dave Manning was up for the crossing, but we did the best thing as we all had a fantastic safe weekend doing what we did.

It was also our first meet and the boats need a little sorting for the Ile of man when we eventualy decide to go as its a big leap from the straits for sure.

Thanks for all the organising realy enjoyed it.

I didn't actually fill them with unleaded!

Sat/Sun does look reasonable for a crossing, although there might be a bit of a chop left from the North Easterly 5 that's currently expected to last until tomorrow night.

I'm sailing at Port St Mary this w/e - there'll be plenty of people at the Yacht Club there on Sat, Sun & Mon. It'll knock about 10 miles off the crossing as well.

Regards

Jon

IOM

Jon,

I can't go anywhere this weekend as Llynhome is going into hospital to have her steering sorted. We will plan a crossing to somewhere on the IOM in the future, daughter has never been and was dissapointed we called it off.
We saw Alan's Scorpion in Pwllheli Marina moored next to ours and realised then the passage was possible. However we had a great time anyway and with one new boat and one inexperienced crew on mine I think we made the right choice on Friday evening not to risk it. Especially with some of the weather that was forecast for Sunday.

Thanks again for your help in planning it all and see you in August in Conwy?
Ian

Conwy

It looks like la famille Whiting is heading for belle France in August so we are unlikely to make Conwy.

Hope to catch up with you guys somewhere in the future.

Unfortunately my son didn't win the IoM heat of the RYA rib challenge so I won't have an excuse to go to Southampton Boat Show!
