Well, I'm still here Ray. Haven't been up the Sloop this year, but have been out quite a few times, mainly fishing. Was round in Sandown Bay on friday.

Seemed to be Everyman as his dog out yesterday! Lots of sailors not sailing and lots of mobos playing in the flat!

Will be out again today trying to stay out of trouble. Picnic somewhere with the nephew I think.

Were you using the slip to do you have a berth?

I have a berth. bit excessive for a 5m boat, but most of the time i ride a motorbike, and they don't tow ribs too well.

23rd.

Well I was out on the 23rd, boat full of kiddies and a very large ringo. Got out early and it was quiet, but boy once the tide had turned it was boats all over the show. No videos this time out, too busy keeping kiddies quiet

22nd, 23rd and 24th

We were out from Friday to Sunday with the Biboa Easter Cruise based out of Cowes - Wooton Creek and Ryde on Friday. Lymington, Studland Bay and Swanage on Saturday - including watching the same dolphins PeterM videoed off Swanage (his video quality is much better than mine), then Langstone Harbour, Bembridge and Ventnor on Sunday.

What a great weekend cruising round the Solent in company - 4 to 6 ribs with the crews swapping boats at every opportunity!

Looks like a great weekend!

Is that My Pleasure II I see perched on the end of that third photo?
