When I get back from my current trip I must make some more firm arrangements on time etc with the 'new Girl'

Thanks Nasher - I'm assuming I'm the new girl!

You will be pleased to know that we have successfully launched and retrieved the boat at Blue Horizon - which apparently do it there, you can do it anywhere!

I find the best way is to aim for the centre of the beach at WOT approx 1/2 mile off and then skip across the sand bank and then arrive cool as a cucumber just like James Bond.

Obviously you are then captive to Kathleen's Pimms until the next high tide.

It also means those of you that keep your boat in the water 365 days a year clean any shell life off free gratis.

Smoke Free

Given the fact that it will be exactly 7 days after the governments smoking ban I expect Priory Bay to be a leading example of UK healthy living.

Surely 7 days in long enough for UK Ltd to stop smoking !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tides

Not sure if this got answered whether the tide times quoted were BST or GMT. I've checked Reeds 2007, according to them, the tides for Bembridge are +20 mins on Dover so basically the same as Portsmouth. Looking at the times, these look like they are BST ( i.e. Real time) although they differ slightly from both Dover and Portsmouth but it isn't an exact science anyway.

Do you set first base at Cowes, second at Needles, third at St Caths?
