No danger but lots of thrills: conditions that Ribs were made for so it's a shame that no one else went for it. Nonetheless, appreciate Swedishjedi's attempt: it's a long way from Portsmouth against wind and tide. Hope to meet up with you (and everyone else) next time.

sorry dude was very up for this trip but i have to make sure the weather is spot on before towing 160 miles day i will have a rib that can handle it

Sorry to have missed it as well. Had a good day out in the Solent from Hamble with lunch in Yarmouth, but the wind over spring tide Solent chop was not great at times...

Another apology from me. Time was short due to work, and the cost of fuel (combined towing from the Midlands and the boat fuel costs ) put a dampner on the trip for me 😟

I really hope to join in on one of your trips sometime soon.
