Normally at the start time ribs will still be arriving all over the horizon and they'll keep on coming.

This year there is no waiting, there is one hour between 10:30 & 11:30am it's up to everyone to be on time.

Small ribs are encouraged to leave early and the larger ribs or people with engine knowledge are encouraged to run towards the back.
Understood 👍

I understand the new arrangments ( your second post explaining the revised times etc ) are encouraging the slower boats to leave earlier , I guess I was just making the point if a larger, faster rib was to leave prior to some of the slower boats then a await is inevitable, possibly entailing enough time to have a brew no offence in any way ment - whatever happens it will be a blinding day for a great cause

Was floating around hurst and the needles last weekend when 1600 yachts all managed to negotiate the solent, if they can do it I'm sure a few RIBs will manage

Hi Fender,

I've had to look at 5 yachts this week that didn't "manage to negotiate the Solent" last Saturday!

Got to love the RTI 😀

Hi Whisper do you think its worth mentioning some safety advice in the form of a post just to remind people;

1. Its not a race
2. Watch your distance to other boats, dont follow in someones wake too closely and dont cross other boats bows too closely.
3. Be aware of your wake especially its effect on smaller boats
4. Wear a lifejacket
5. Wear a kill cord
6. Take a VHF with you
7. Suncream - wear it
8. Water - take some
9. Have a great day

Yes you have just done it

Also if someone could bump my cruising in company post from two years ago that would be great. I'm down here at Biffs with only a phone

Off out boat testing soon
