Kevin, what are your plans for Sunday. LAmpton ribsters heading for Cowes Sunday morning . Leaving LA between 8:30/9:00. Weather good so it should take us just over an hour. We must be back for 2 PM before LW

Trip Pics

Well, In the end I met up with AndyB007 at Calshot as planned. We then made our way clockwise around the IOW, as it had been pointed out to me by Andy that we wouldn't have got in to Littlehampton at the time we wanted. Nice face saver that.
The weather was stunning just like a nice summers day, the seas were very smooth and scenery fantastic. I even managed to get some towing in off Yarmouth.
After a nice lunch in the Kings Head had a short blast back to Warsash. Managed to get 41 Knots in the kind seas. Fuel consumption was 55 Litres for the 63 NM trip giving an average of 1.1 NM to the litre.

Pic 1 shows Andy on Darwin off Ventnor whilst we had a coffee break.
Pic 2 shows myself and my friend Steve also off Ventnor.
Pic 3 shows the Needles at her finest.
Pic 4 shows Darwin off the Needles.
Pic 5 shows the slow bit.

Oh the shame of it!

Great day nonetheless.

We nipped into Yarmouth and saw you tied to the wall.

I think we need to start buying some RIBNET T shirts so we can identify each other.

The Burgees don't seem to be very prolofic on RIBs around the Solent and they fade badly any way.

Wight Skipper you should have popped in to the RIBNET local in Yarmouth and said hello. The Kings head.
