27th is currently looking good for a spot of Codding, so will be stocking up the freezer hopfully. If I finish early I could be tempted to thaw out by a log fire sipping my favorite ale

I'm up for this one too. Will probably be on my own since all sorts of relatives are arriving then but it will get me out of meeting and greeting!

Would prefer Ventnor to Wootton Creek (better food!) but am happy with either. Alternatively, the tides are good for Newtown Creek where the food is excellent! Could take the opportunity to call in at Yarmouth for petrol and to book the places for the Nacho Run.

Let's firm up on the destination on the 26th when the weather forecast should be pretty accurate.
Probably my 1st choice would be Wooton Creek as it's child friendly and not too far for Whisper as he'll be in his Searider - but lets see nearer the time.

Point taken I don't think I will ever grow out of going round and round in circles really really fast

Hope kids eat free

No: that was Newtown Creek! (But well sort of remembered )

With the tides being as they are (time and etc ) we're not goning to be able to make Wootton Creek since we've no entry back to the marina between 4.30 (darkness) and 7.45pm (very dark and cold).

Ventnor, Yarmouth Newtown Creek and Cowes remain options (as does Ashlett Creek: tee hee for those in the know)

If we made it an early lunch and aimed to be out of the Sloop by 13.30 would that still be too late to get back to Poole by 16.30?

Hi All - wherever we decide to go, we'll be aiming to leave Southampton Drystack at about 11.00 - which means by the time we've drifted down the Itchen at 6 Kts for 25 minutes or so we'll probably get to the end of Southampton Water / the end of the Hamble at about 11.45.

We'll be on VHF 72 (monitoring 16) and mobile 07840 975807.
