Really should have listened at school and learnt how to read

The date was ideal, just no one told the weather that it needed to be nice or the tide that it had to be in.

Not sure about Plymouth, but we went for a quick first shakedown run in Torbay today- Brixham- Torqua & a bit of playing for 2 hours .... sea / visibility was fine but it was bloody cold.

We were the only boat out in Torbay this afternoon - not sure what that says about our intrepidieness/ foolhardiness. There were two padddle-boaders out as well - what is the point of doing that??

I was out on the river in Plymouth today, it was freezing cold but the conditions were great, we were out for less than 2 hours.

Would a postponement to the next decent bank Holiday - May the 6th - be an idea.

Not that I can be trusted with tide tables but I think it's a 1630 high tide and the sun will be shinning

??????????????????????????

Hi Andy

Postponement? What a great idea. I don't think even Ian will be going tomorrow to Fowey with the winds today and through the night keeping the seas up.

I can't make May 6th as we are away but hopefully I will be able to meet up with you all on another occasion as the idea seems very popular.

Oh, yes , you have got the tides right this time.

Cheers,

Peter

Andy,
I do think postponing the trip is a sensible idea.
It is bitingly cold out on the water at the moment, added to which the ENE wind is predicted to increase, and will be kicking up the sea - gusts upto Force 8 on the latest inshore forecast I've read.
I don't think it will be any fun on the water tomorrow.
I do think a pastie run is a great idea for a rib cruise and look forward to doing it another time.

A further thought, If there a a bunch of frustrated ribnetters kicking around the Plymouth area tomorrow we could convene in a pub or somewhere suitable fro aan hour or so to discuss how we would have successfully made the trip!
