Not really bumpy for us but we were sheltered where we were


Some wild stories from those who braved St. Kath's though

Whiteshoes and Crew invincible as ever.

Love your Paree Photos.

My favourite is the Head and Hand

Thank you one and all for the welcome today. Quite a baptism for the first time. Especial thanks to Whiteshoes himself for putting up with us. And to listen to piglet telling the stay-at-homes how much fun we all had, you'd never know...

Thanks to everybody who turned out. Good to meet Whiteshoes clearly nothing stops him getting to the Pub in Yarmouth! Big thanks to The Jackeens who turned up despite the conditions and took in some of the Hampshire countryside taking the scenic route to Hamble via Lymington! Great to see you guys again.

Boy was it rough.....so no photos as we were all busy holding on!

Reports were of 12ft waves at St Cats We packed it in after running for two hours in difficult conditions and it just got too big off the Beaulieu River and we still had to get to Yarmouth to finish. We called it a day when several of us smaller Ribs were doing synchronised transom stands . Its supposed to be for fun.

Lets hope the weather is better for next time

There is a wealth of anecdotal evidence to support this statement.

Great to see you too and thanks for all the hard work and fantastic prizes organised by the Committee of The Lower Bar. Enjoyed the chat Anto . We had a bit of trouble with the prop as we were tearing through the New Forest but had a clear run into the Hamble (Mental note to self: check out nearby shops next time )

Just to say thanks to you all for coming. We all had a great day despite the weather and pleased to see you all at the Southern. Hope you'll join us next year - special thanks to Rib.net for this forum - by the way Katie the Southern Sailing Secretary actually drove the winning boat so one up for the girls
