Mike -sorry to hear about your wife's accident. Hope she's better soon.

Thanks Missus,

Yes, she's OK. Only her pride was bruised.... oh and the bit she sits on..... which now matches the colour of the tubes on my boat!


Seriously, she did go down with a crash and jarred everthing, so rest rather than bumpy seas will be better today. Hopefully fit for a re-match on Saturday if you are around!?

Not sure at the minute...trying to squeeze on Brittany Ferries maybe!
But if we're here we'll be pottering around in Zeb.

Glad Mrs. Mike C is OK . Hope to see you both soon.

Thanks to Martin, Ray, Roy and Alistair (sort of!!) for taking part in this cruise and thanks to those of you who took Rosie and Ian when we had to cancel at the last minute because of an overheating engine (which turned out to need a new impeller). Hope you all had a good cruise! Anyone got any photos to share?

Thanks also to everyone who had expressed an interest but then took the trouble to excuse themselves when it turned out they couldn't make it.

Now we need to organise another cruise to Old Harry for those who us who couldn't make this one! So, anyone fancy picking a date?

'Bit ill fated this trip!!!!

OK, if its mid week, before the end of the season, I will try again! In a few weeks time maybe? Andre is usually better early in the week, so at the moment, for me, any Mon, Tue or Wed, EXCEPT, Aug 23,24,25 Sept 13,14,15,20.

Otherwise any day with at least force 8 predicted will be fine.

By the way, what WAS the sea state like on Wednesday? It was one of those days when you could find a prediction for anything & everything. Went out on Saturday. Nice day but still a little sloshy in places from the night before. Nice lunch in a busy Cowes though!

Thanks. Yes, it's all sorted now. We changed the impeller the same day and were back out on the water the next day. Cheers.

Thanks Roy.... Right decision for my wife's bruises tehn!

If you're up for a mid week to Lulworth then we need to be quick. They start shooting on the ranges again come september....

What are you doing next week, if this awful weather goes away?
