Second thoughts, maybe your right, but he'll be on his own, I suspect.

Hi Ian

You must be a glutton for punishment, ha ha. Forecast is 10 or 12 mph winds gusting to 23 with a sea state- rough!!!! You obviously cannot get enough of it, rough that is.

Have fun

Peter

I have to be ready to go out in any weather to do a rescue, you never know who or what needs rescueing, so is "rough" more or less than a 5 mtr swell

Hi
All this talk of Pasty Runs, as I am away on Saturday, and havent had the boat out since boxing day I needed a day out. We launched this morning at Saltash, wizzed round the harbour down the devon coast towards Newton Ferris. It was windy (F4 ish) and cold, seas were fine on the devon side. Wrapped up warm we were fine, you do need gloves and all the kit. My son got a bit cold and we headed back to for a hot meal, and bought him some decent gloves. My advice would be that its fine heading out of Plymouth on the sheltered devon side, lovey heading west with the wind behind you, but I would fancy a return trip from Fowey head into that wing too much.
Hope you all have a good day

RIBase
Looking at the web cams (whilst there was light) the forecast and talking to people out diving today then my plan is to bin tomorrow and try again on the 6th May.

Any one else that was planning to go and are still up for it - have a cracking run butI'm going to be a lightweight shandy drinker and go to Woodlands with the kids instead.

Have fun

Have a warm dry day

Andy,

I think you've made the right decision (though not sure about Woodlands when it's this cold!!! = a lon luch at a decent pub is even better)
The pastie run is a great concept, but conditiions for us leisure ribbers are pants - having been out yesterday and seeing the seas kicked up this afternoon from the Siberiean Easterly it would vary between - " not fun" and "downright risky". There is a time when discretion is the better part of valour.

I look forward to doing this later in the year - and indeed as an annual fixture- but when conditions are right.

PM me if you're heading for Dartmouth want to meet up for a pint

Bob
