Should, however, be a good day in the solent, provided you dont go past the forts or past the needles....

Boo, thats not so good. Are you bringing the V24 to the folly anyway?!

change of plan it seems, we will probably be launching from camber at around 9.30 - 10

just realised due to commitments we might not make the warsash launch site in time and we cant have my good lady paddling around so we will go with camber in portsmouth

will meet everyone at the lightship

Leave Lym @10.15
Arr Ptmth @11

Ian, I'm starting to feel a little guilty about the timings as everyone else is talking about 0600 and 0645! I'm happy to leave whenever is needed. If the plan is 1030@pompey, lets aim for that. say 0830-0845@ Lym, and leave the pontoons by 0930. HW is 0800. we could always hang a left Cowes if its cold/wet/spikey etc. let me know your thoughts....
No need for guilt, although my wife does reckon that it burns up calories I will definately be at Lymington, the only question is whether I, and more importantly my son, will be able to make it by 08.45. Definately going, the forecast seems to be getting better and better. Will do my best to be on time , you should not miss my RIB Now where did I put that christmas tree?

Please check for errors & add updates with advice, Notices To Mariners (see solent logs for example!!!), weather checks, launch news etc.

Please check back a couple of pages for any recent notes.

N.N.B. Portsmouth Lot aim to be out of Portsmouth Harbour by 11.46

At The Folly the restaurant bit is reserved for us (on the left as you walk in the door.) They have a 'queue and pay at the bar' system but if peeps club together then one person could pay & order for a few at once?

The manager is having a word with the ferry guy/ harbourmaster but as many as possible could be dropped off by RIB.

The manager also said there will be no problem at all looking after us all but he's off to watch football for the day

Looking forward to seeing the Christmassy RIBS!!! Please check back a few pages for other arrangements including the mobile contacts that have been made available

Kathleen & Paul
Happy New Resolutions!!! : RIBbing for the craic!!!

Solent Christmas Folly Cruise 16.12.06

Any chance you can fit another boat in? If so Charlie and Nina from Shrek would like to come.

Will be at the Folly sometime after 12.00 if you can fit us in then well and good.

Weather looks good but getting colder - looks like double rapping day!

Don't forget you passports and visas. Tim Griffin and I will be religiously checking all papers.
And no doubt expecting the customary crisp fiver slipped inside I fancy.

I shall, of course, avoid this toll by appraoching from a landward direction having already been ripped off by Wightlink earlier in the day.
