Er…. With all the drying sand it says there is on my chart..... can we actually get close to the beach at low tide? Presumbaby yes cos you did it last year. Is there a secret route in?

Not a secret route, but a secret method.

Send Old Spice in first, when it touches bottom the rest of us know we will be in trouble soon.

Hi k & P
Should the weather hold can do the 7th but not the 8th. So are you feeling back to norm yet, went windsurfing Monday and Tuesday, not such a good idea, delayed recovery even more i think, surprised how much the trip took out of you.
hope all is well
Phil

We may be able to get there a little bit quicker than anticipated. In fact we may even be able to stop off on the way to snag some suicidal Mackerel for the BBQ!

I was thinking along those lines too... Since I got a grey boat I seem to be doing quite well with a rod and line. I wonder if the bright orange hull on the sr4 put them off?

Cheers Tim, but it's ok. Haslar Sea School have actually hired a Solent Rib for the day, and so as soon as my instructors are off the water after lunch, I'll be bringing that!

If it's there, use it, that's what I say!

Is there any chance you might be able to give me a lift in your hired Solent Rib? It would be terribly kind of you....
