We will dual watch on Ch 16/77 Callsign Hudson - I'll give you a hail around Calshot.
Richard, did you change your plans? How was your day? We waited til about 11, as Bedajim was late due to fog on the motorway, but no sign, even tried calling on 16/77 a few times, but figured you changed your plans.

Hi, Yes, did have a change of plan as we got held up (other group didn't make it in the end). Must have just missed you as I think we came tonking down Southampton water at about 11 - not sure why we didn't pick up your call and I figured you must have been long gone to the Lightship by then.

By then we were on a bit of a tight schedule as I had to pick up my son mid afternoon from a scout camp. So we ended up nipping down to Bembridge Ledge for a floating coffee and then round the southside, into near Sandown and Shanklin to have a look at the beaches before skirting round in to St Kats for photos. Across to Freshwater and then we anchored for lunch under the chalk cliffs south side of the needles.

Quite a few ribs doing similar there.

Then it was pretty much straight back after taking lots of photos of cliffs / Needles. Back on the pontoon by 14:30. Great day out but a real shame we missed you all but I suspect our need to get back didn't fit. The only advantage of the enforced early return was that we seemed to miss the inevitable Sunday afternoon traffic on the M3. If it hadn't been for that I think I'd have been very tempted to have nipped over to Old Harry just for the drive and come back late evening.

I kept an eye on the fuel and we used 70l for the round trip being reasonably economic and limiting my son to 30kts.

Next time...
