Well I'm intending to go but you are right we need a plan!
If some are launching at Baiter I'm happy to link up and travel to Lulworth in convoy.

Tides permitting (I'll need to check) if we want to get to Lulworth by 12:30 ish and have time to enjoy the Jurassic Coast on the way leaving Poole around 11:00 sounds about right.

I'm still looking at this but I'll be coming straight from hamble, I've got to go to cowes first for a change over on holiday home, hope there isn't too much cleaning, then head out after that, as I said before, look out for a yellow cabin rib and say hello

Weather permitting I'm still up for this, and launching at Baiter.

Not sure what this tide times are that day, but do we need to time to go round St Albans at slack water?

We're up for this and therefore hope to be launching from Parkstone Bay Marina with Oscarguitar. The only problem is that the tide prevents any return to the Marina between 2.45 and 5.15 (and, consequently, it will also be low tide at Baiter for recovery between those times for those launching there). We might just have to stay longer in the pub!

In weather suitable for the trip, there should be no problem for a 5m+ Rib rounding St Albans at any state of tide - although keeping within 100m of the cliff will ensure as smooth a passage as possible if the race is running. FWIW slack tide of St Albans starts around 4.00pm on 9 Aug and lasts about 30 mins.

I might disgaree with the statement about "no problem rounding st albans at any state of tide", I guess it depends how bad it can be, I have personal been through the overfalls when it has been very scarry, were talking bow nearly vertical or at least felt like that, so my point is it can be very scary at times, you can go long way round or as suggested keep near to cliff but you have to know how near as there are plenty of rocks.

I would say most of the time its fine going round that bit and through the overfalls and ive been through about a dozen times or more in the last few months, but if it is bad it can be very very nasty for a short period of time. Just a case of see what the weather and tides are doing, if it looks horrible on approach then take inside route or outside route or just turn back. I expect it will be fine that day.

My statement was qualified by the caveat "In weather suitable for the trip .....". I too have been round the head in conditions which would have made turning around part way through a tricky business. Such conditions would not be suitable, I would suggest, for a trip in a 5m Rib unless with an experienced helm.
