Just thought I'd summarise details of Wednesday's cruise.
Prime Rib II / 6.3 Humber / Mike C & Sheila
Seahawk 2 / 6+ Parker / Andre & Wiesia
Bonza 2 / 6+ Ring / Ray Bradman
Old Spice / 6+ Pacific / Pete 7
Zippy / 5.5 Zodiac / Alistair (Aligator) - meeting at Old Harry
Bob / 5.85 Ribcraft / Martin Stacey
Pendragon / 5.85 Ribcraft / Peter T (Ribald)
Kecka Rocka / 7.5 Cobra / Roy Smith & family
Loose Cannon / 6.5 Scorpion / Peter Lightfoot (non RIBnet)
Blue Ice / 7.5 Scorpion / Richard B & Louise, Rosie & Ian Warner
Meet in vicinity of Yacht Club Starting Platform, Lymington, (at the entrance to Lymington River - a hut on stilts- adjacent to no. 1 starboard channel marker) and be ready to leave at 10.30. Comms on Ch 77.
Aim to arrive at Old Harry by 12.00 to meet Alistair.
Take own food and drink for boat picnic.
Flexible but need to bear in mind Andre needs to be back at Littlehampton for 8pm high tide (so between 6pm & 10pm? Have I remembered this correctly, Andre? I assume earlier is better than later as it would be better to recover in daylight). This would mean we should be back at Lymington for around 4.30 - 5pm.
Don't forget the sun hats and sun cream! BBC weather forecast says it'll be sunny with temperatures between 17 and 24 degrees with a light (4 - 6 mph) southerly.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Louise & Richard
