Saturday, 21st March - Solent Blast (Poole?)

Anyone out and about Saturday? Forecast looking good at the moment and thinking of a run to Poole if nice enough.

Hi Neil
Can't make Saturday but we will be out and about on Sunday - Launching from Swanwick slipway mid to late morning. We've no specific plans as yet but if anyone else is about on Sunday please do post a post (if that's the right way of saying it!).
Trevor

I'm around on Saturday, although I suspect that other obligations for Mother's Day will prevent coming out on Sunday.

Poole isn't much of a trip for me though! Anybody fancy Weymouth?

Which are you up for? Poole, Weymouth or Sunday? And launching where?

Wouldn't go anywhere near the solent this weekend, and avoid getting to close to anyone who launches there too

[COLOR="Blue"][berth. Humber Star was alongside the Southern Water jetty on the east bank of the River Itchen when she went down at around 5.30am.

Much of the 400 tonnes of sewage and 800 gallons of red diesel aboard is thought to have spilled into the river posing an environmental risk. Anti-pollution booms have been deployed to contain the spillage, but a spokesman for the MCA said it was likely to disperse quickly.

We're hoping to launch at Lymington tomorrow and head towards Poole; we probably won't be able to get on the water until 11 at the earliest, so may miss you early-birds. If you do happen to be around either in the morning or later near Poole, it would be good to meet up.

Have a good day whatever happens

If Mrs Avocet is coming with me, I can't see us being on the water much before 11.00 since she has a delivery to make first thing - although with no speed limits still in the harbour we should be able to get out quite quickly once we're off.

I suspect that Andre will be launching somewhere in the Solent and, if his post was in response to the Weymouth suggestion, I anticipate that he's unlikely to be off Poole until around 10.30.

We'll have to wait and see!
