You boys missed out! Flat clam all the way, the worst bit was the run into Southampton! Streaker would have loved it as did Nathan K!

Looks like you had a fantastic time, we were on the rib anchored in Whitecliff Bay as you all passed.

Wish we had gone but being newbies we are still gaining confidence and skills with the RIB!

This type of informal trip is ideal for newbies as you can go to areas that you might not go to by yourself. There are always people willing to "fly in formation" just to keep a watchful eye out for you. That's how I started exploring to harbours of the Solent.

Excellent video Whisper. For some reason it won't play on an iPhone or iPad though. Any chance you could adjust the settings to allow it to play from mobile devices as well please?

Thanks to all for making some newbies feel welcome. It was an excellent day and a great trip well planned Trevor G and Whisper. By the time I got back last night and washed the boat down i was nodding off in my Chinese take away!

Also special thanks again to Trevor G for getting me out of a big hole......literally with his 4X4!

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!

Vid to follow

In that case hope to join you guys next time if you don't mind.

Great vid. There's nothing better than seeing a group of ribs powering across an open sea. Looks like the conditions couldn't have been much better.
