We met the crusie coming around The Needles and I captured a few shots for you. What a lovely day, we also had some great clients on two ribs

And then it was off to the pub for lunch and a beer... Sitting outside The Spyglass by the sea in the sunshine:

I'll leave others to post pictures of the scenery (cliffs, the Needles etc) and I look forward to the video footage: enough seemed to be being taken!

I'll leave you with one last photo of Whisper nearly taking a dunking in Ventnor Harbour:

I don't think that I can add much, it has all been said. Flat calm, nothing to test boat or crew, and amazing weather. When we got to Ventnor it was warm,the sun was shining, the gulls were wheeling and children were playing in the sea. A proper summers day at the sea side
Thanks for doing all the hard work of organising Trevor and Alex, as has been said doing this sort of thing in pleasant company really makes the event

Wow, they really are great photos

I've just got back in but I bet AJ might still be on the road.

Thanks to everyone for making this such a great cruise and in great company as always.

Seeing the RNLI out training as the helicopter delivered a person into the RNLI rib at speed was a treat too

We met up with Sibbo90 at Lymington after he found a new wheel and cruised back to Southampton with them and we also had a good chat with Ian from C2Ribs too.

But most of all, thanks to Trevor G for helping with the planning and and all the other advice which made this cruise so safe and enjoyable

Hi Biff, hope you're doing well, here's a few more pics for you. As you once said the kids will be swimming in Ventnor!
