Round IOW Saturday 9 September 2006

Right finally got my plans sorted. After sorting my Berth out at Shamrock i intend to be off Calshot at 1130 hrs. My intentions are to circumnavigate the IOW. Anyone interested in joining me ?

One final piece of advice sought. It looks like a South easterly on Saturday which way would be the preferred way to go. Clockwise or anti Clockwise.

I will be carrying out a listening watch on Ch 77 and answer to Biggles or Zerstorer.

Well didn't go round the IOW today as the sea was rougher than expected.

Took a quick trip down to Portsmouth and Langstone then ran back in to Cowes. Bumped in to Ageing Youth on the Haslar Lightship. He was doing a grand tour of the harbour.

Will be out again tomorrow . Hope its calmed down a bit by then.

Hi, hope you had a good day.

Was walking along the beach by the Ferry Inn this afternoon with my family and saw both you and Kevin as you went past.

Both boats were looking good, I guessed you'd given up on going around the Island.

Mrs Nasher got fed up with me, middle and little Nasher complaining that we should have put the boat in today.

Looking forward to the Yarmouth cruise, but will probably be out before, maybe Friday afternoon.

Biggles,

Sorry, didn't realise it was you I saw out in Southampton water, and then again at shamrock - was trying to avoid hitting things - got caught by the very strong tide as I came out of the visitors mooring!

I am not normally ignorant, if i'd have realised I would have said hello

Ah well, I'm sure I'll see you some other time

Boat looks great!

Benc,

No problems. I got caught with the very strong tide trying to get out of the visitors moorings tonight. Nearly didn't make it. Took a good 5 minutes to work out how to do it.

Benc,

Just realised that was you with the twin engined Tornado. Nice bit of kit. Looks very smooth and turns very well. My ex RIG RIB Coxswain was very impressed. I just wish he'd buy his own damn boat, instead of trying to get me to buy a twin engine setup.

Ah sorry, yes - should have said

It's not bad at all - was cruising down southampton at about 46-49 knots ish, was a little lumpy in places... but on the whole not too bad.

Never really been hit by the tide by shamrock before - definately going to be more concious of it next time!

Dont worry guys, you aren't the only ones to get caught out there, seen a few nasty accidents with large amounts of damaged caused! Sounds like you got off lightly!

Gray,

I was very close to some serious amounts of damage. Not good on your new pride and joy. Polish and Roguewaves magic cleaning potion coming out tomorrow.
Worst thing is I thought I was doing good to berth on the Visitors pontoon because I had some non boating people on board. When I had rid of them I couldn't get away from the pontoon because the tide was pushing me on to it.

A couple of times the tube went under the pontoon and on the last occasion I had to use an oar to slide the tube out. Try explaining to your 12 year old daughter that if she holds the bow rope on loosely you will swing the stern out and then when its clear she can let the rope go.

As always with boating there are loads of new things to learn.

Maybe thats why its so exciting. Compared to our health and safety conscious world on land.
