If you are unfamiliar with the northeast and east sides of the island have a look at a chart because you need to give Ryde Sands and Bembridge Ledge (after Bembridge Lifeboat Station) a very wide berth as they are shallow areas extending a good way out.

I don't want to complicate things but if it would aid a smooth 'group launch and recovery' on Sunday I'm more than happy to jog in with you on your team Scooby group deal?

Let me know what's best.
Barrowboy,
I can't help with costs if you've already paid your fees - but it might be worth asking for a discount on the Sunday if you're paying on arrival. I can help with launching and recovery if you need it, my boat for the weekend is carried to the water by hand, but I'm bringing my Range Rover if you need a trailer towing up or down the slipway.

Will

No worries Will, I couldn't possibly stand by and watch your Range Rover do all the hard work whilst I look on from the comfort of my Defender!

Look forward to meeting you on 29th.

Barrowboy - You doing the trip in the SR? Have you sorted the fuel consumption?

I wish Tony, It would have been brilliant to catch up with everyone again, and get out on a trip ive always wanted to do (and with company) but all my spare/boating cash is buying prams and costs at the moment.. My boating this year has been horrific so far, only one real trip but I am hoping to get out loads towards the end of the year...

If you are going in or out of Southampton Water watch out for Calshot spit. It extends out much further than you would expect and will be shallow enough on that morning and around tea time to bend props. Also make yourself familiar with the precautionary zone between Cowes and Calshot (within that zone you have a rolling prohibited area in front of and either side of large vessels over 150m in length, you need to keep 1000m away from the front and 100m either side of these vessels). See http://www.southamptonvts.co.uk/admi...-by%20page.pdf for more info.

Ah, like that RNR Lieutenant in the yacht did when he caught his spinnaker halyard around the anchor of the tanker?
