No just me at the moment, unless anyone else is up for it.??

I'll join you.

Where and when will you be launching? Any plans?

Lunch somewhere on the IoW would be nice but I think the tides are neaps which might be restrictive. I'll check the Almanac when I get home (late) this evening.

Anyone else up for it?

David

Tides look OK for a trip round to Ventnor.

Bruce it'd be good to have you along.

I'd love to go to Ventnor having previously only passed it without stopping and I hear good reports.

The tides for Ventnor are, however: Sat 20 Dec LW 10.24 1.6m HW 17.50 3.1m

With the harbour drying, such a late HW is not ideal and I have today telephoned the harbour office who have confirmed that entry/exit over lunch time is likely to be difficult despite recent dredging operations. They were very helpful but felt that safe entry before 15.00 could not be guaranteed - and with darkness coming at around 16.00, I fear that Ventnor might be for another occasion.

Any other suggestions? So far as launching is concerned, I dry stack at Parkstone Bay in Poole so anywhere in the Western Solent is convenient.....but: have boat; can travel!

If you take it steady it takes 2-3 hours for a full circumnavigation. Perhaps we could do the trip round then head to Cowes or The Folly for lunch.

So rendevous off Calshott at around 10-30?

Round the isand sounds great - never done it in December! We are only expressing long shot interest at the moment but hope to be with you.

Calshot 10:30 - Needles - St Caths - Fort - Cowes (or Ryde) for lunch - sounds good!
