Hi Benc,
I am doing this in reverse over easter, going from Southampton to Ramsgate and then into London on the Easter Fri/Sat.

Let me know if you have any tips! (like praying for the wind to be from the West or NW)

Cheers

Ozz

Wind has been too bad to make the journey over the last couple of days, so still havent left ramsgate yet. Possibly tomorrow, but will have to wait for the weather in the morning.

Decided not to make the journey, weather didnt ease up, pretty much a 5-6 constantly over the last few days. Sea state was 2-3 meters too.

Didnt see many other boats going out at all, so that helps to numb the disappointment of not making the journey back now.

Have decided to bring the boat back to the solent by road now. Should be back and launched by the weekend, so hope to be out this weekend.

Gaffa tape a 1ft diameter tube all the way round the hull and you'll be fine
