Given the weather forecasters track record,we intend to launch from Calshot about 10am if it isnt awful and see how far we get,will head in a forts direction if we see no-one.

Looking forward to meeting up with everyone. Sounds like you've made a sensible decision, Peter, and hope we do get to at least say 'hello'.

Ray has very kindly offered to take me out in his RIB, so I am about to leave to find my way to Bembridge by road. I will almost definately get lost.

Hopefully I won't and so will see you all at 11 by the fort!

Tim

Rain rain go way

I popped out for about two hours between 1:00 and 3:00 pm for a bit of rough sea practise and felt sorry for you lot if you were out in it. The sea and wind were not too bad - but the rain!

Last week I got soaked by the sea this week by the rain. I had not been out in rain before. Driving head on on to the wind with rain in your face was like being hit by a thousand needles. I'm taking my diving mask next time!

Hope you all had a safe and dry as possible day.

Peter.

Peter, between 1 & 3 we were having a great time in the Fountain
