It's possibly manageable (depending on the sea state) but tight: see PM.

Hope to see you all tomorrow .

OK - lets see who makes it out, and decide based on the smallest boat - probably Whisper.

If it looks do-able time-wise maybe Newtown Creek would be a new experience for many (Nathan K and Whisper), so we could aim for there and firm up in the morning.

That seems to be the best bet at the moment. Went to check the boat today and it was blowing quite hard across Poole Harbour: waves larger than usual. Didn't go out, so don't know about the Bay but tomorrow will, I suspect be interesting just before and after Hengistbury!

Nathan K and I expecting to leave the marina around 10.00 (see you in the pub ).

If you're not doing Newtown Creek (can we get ejected a second time?), we'll meet up with Andy Moore in Yarmouth.

It was actually well remembered and poorly typed... i meant to write Newtown Creek, but was thinking about Wooton creek as not been there before...
