26 May

If you're just there for the Saturday, try post 28 above.

If you're coming from Swanage, we could meet up about 10.15 pm?

If you can cruise at around 25-30kts we should still RV at Portland as proposed. (If you can go faster, that's fine by me but OrcarG (if he's coming) might whimp!)

26 May

'Tis me the feul! You're quite right: 10.15 am (I must mind my 'p's and 'a's more carefully!)
and, yes, 26 May is the Saturday.

Swanage - Portland (where there's - expensive - quayside petrol) is 23M. Swanage - Lulworth (where there's none) is around 18M.

If you intend to rely on Portland's petrol, I'd advise a prior 'phone call since I've twice been there when it's not been available (and buying and then lugging cans in Weymouth isn't recommended even if necessary!)

Warbarrow Bay is my favourite spot in this area, not far from Lulworth cove but far less busy and a nice big beach, easy to anchor.

I would have loved to have joined you all but im keeping the misses happy and taking her away for a long weekend for our anniversary. However as were staying at the Lighthouse on Anvil Point I will look out for some of you going past so give us a wave as you zoom past.
