It was Ajstars brother, bit worrying initially but he transferred to Ian M's RIB and had a better ride in that for the rest of the passage. On arrival at Lymington he seemed a lot better. Got to take your hat off to the guys in the Humber and Ribeye they did bloody well in the conditions
Conditions were horrible, forecast was for 0.7m seas this morning, they were more like 2m. Wind started off SW about f2-f3 but veered to NW and increased f4-f5 with higher gusts. Seas were fairly confused so we took another pounding, probably worse than Saturday
Didn't see the IOW until we were about 3 miles from it. What a glorious sight after a 4 1/2 hour passage.
Think its fair to say we ache all over, body took a beating, clothes wet through.
As an end of season cruise it was more like a challenge but we've done it, we had a lovely night in the La Pizza restaurant with a great bunch of like minded RIbbers.
Well done to everyone, let's hope next years end of season cruise is on a mill pond !
