Lunch Solent/IoW Sat 28 Feb

Is anyone out and about tomorrow who would like to meet for lunch in Ventnor?

The weather looks reasonable and the tides are excellent.

David

Hi David
We can't make it tomorrow (Saturday) but are 99% sure we will be out on Sunday - even if it does look like the weather might not be as good as for Saturday. If you don't get any company for tomorrow but want to meet up somewhere on Sunday let me know! The same goes for anyone else of course!

Sunday is fine by me (although finding crew will be harder; but I'm fine to go it on my own if necessary).

Weather may be a bit wet, but hey ho!

Where are people launching from? I'm coming from Poole and can RV there or at Yarmouth or even (if your're all coming from the East) Ventnor itself.

Hi David - I'm possibly out ouf Christchurch at about 10.30 , but only a quick hour as a first run of the season shakedown of the boat ( if it starts)- Shearwater - a bit bigger & more suited to distance than my Avon you have seen me in ! I'll keep an eye out as I'll be between Mudeford & Yarmouth somewhere .

If all goes well I will try & be out Sunday too.

Not good for me if I'm not back in the harbour by around 1 latest so lunch is out.

Pete

Beat you to it (just!).

If you want company for the shakedown tomorrow, I'm more than happy to fit in (would be good) and can be off Christchurch tomorrow as you want if that would help.

PM me or call me if you already have my number.

David

Don't understand the timings of these posts! I thought I had won by 1 minute. Story of my life.

Relax, chill: I'm out tomorrow in Poole/Christchurch Bays and am very much up for Sunday to Ventnor as well.

Where are people launching/coming from on Sunday? Tell me and I'll be there!

If anyone's around on Saturday (today!), I'll be around off Hegistbury/Christchurch around 10.30 and can make points East (or West!) accordingly.

David

We will be launching either from under the Itchen Bridge (Crosshouse Hard) or Swanwick - maybe depending on whether Southampton are playing at home or not tomorrow. We usually get in the water by about 10.30 - 11.00 so if anyone has a plan we'll fit in. Luke - We will have 2 adults and 2 children on the boat but can easily fit one more in if you want to join us - I don't think S'ton is the ideal pick-up location from where you are but PM or call me on 07840 975807 if you want a ride.

Managed to a) start the engine , b) get out of Mudeford without grounding it !

Caught up with Avocet ( just) off Hengistbury and ran up towards Hurst for a few miles - mirror calm out there - fantastic ! Everything worked OK on the boat so came back & cleaned it for an hour.

Pics of Avocet @ around 40knts.

Luke - sorry missed your post but I may be out tomorrow so may well be in touch. Pete
