I have decided not to camp as I haven't managed to fit a tow bar to my wife's car so I can tow the boat and the caravan.
I only live 25 miles from Portland so will travel down on the day.

Hi Guys
As per Avocet's post, I'm hoping to be up for this.
I'm going to aim to launch at Poole late morning - probably at Baiter Slip as last time.
Will be in the 4.7 Searider "Baby Blue"

North west 11 kt dropping to 8kts. what do we think ?
Avocet is this looking doable for small ribs and a sib?

GrahamPollard

matt h are you up for that?

The big boys coming from Poole do you fancy meeting us at Portland like last year and going across together?

Shall I book lunch at "Lulworth Cove Inn"

Lulworth Cove Inn, Pub Restaurant & Rooms in Main Road, Wareham

how many for? and for what time?

With winds sticking N or NW between now and Saturday, there's little room for any fetch to build in the waves so sea state should be fine inshore for small RIBS and SIBS.

I'm currently waiting to hear from Oscarguitar and Long John (PMs to each) as to whether they are still available (probably hear later this evening). Tides preclude Oscarguitar and us launching until just after midday but, assuming that Trevor G will be launching at Baiter, it should be an easy RV with him since it's only 300m away. RV with Long John will be about ten mins later off the RMYC.

If we come over to Portland, we won't be there until after 1.30 pm which would mean rather a late lunch at Lulworth. Unless you're really nervous about doing the crossing without a larger boat (and it's pretty easy: you can virtually see Lulworth from the harbour entrance in good vis), I suggest that we RV directly at Lulworth at around 1.15 - 1.30 (you would have time to call in at Durdle Door on the way if you're launching at 11.00). That would get us to the pub for around 2.00. They do food all day so timing isn't critical and I wouldn't think that booking would be necessary that late.

Suggest Ch08 for comms. and looking forward to it.

David
