well me made it to Ventnor and had a most enjoyable lunch with full sun beaming down on us.

Meet Trevor G at Southampton Dry Stack , nice to put a face to a name

When the tides and weather are right Ventnor is most probably the best place for lunch ie the Spyglass. Sadly we have not too many such opportunities

photos taken at HW

the jouney back was a bit bumpy as the tide had turned but once in the Solent the ride was more enjoyable. A quick stop for coffee in Cowes and back to SDS

Don't know exact time, but about a blink of an eye. It was silted up quite heavy last time I went there.

There is a mooring bouy you can use outside the harbour. The Harbour master picks you up

HW was at 2.10 and we got there about 12.30 and left at about 3 PM

there was no harbour master in sight and a kind fisherman allowed us to moor up against his boat.
