Just a quick note from me - it was an awe-inspiring sight that I had from the deck of the ferry back to Pompy of a flotila of RIBs (and a "hard boat
) coming across the Solent from Cowes.
and then the break-away group heading back to Chi.
I have to say, regretfully, that a couple of the RIBs were certainly exceeding the 10 knt speed limit through the Inner Swashway
but at least they all slowed down to go through the entrance. Have some piccies on the 'phone of this "transgression" which can be deleted or posted depending on the size of the contribution to a suitable charity! No, sod it, it's Christmas - I will post 'em here when I have figured out how to get them from 'phone to PC.
'Twas good to meet old and new friends. FWIW, the trip back up the A3 later this evening was bloody cold - had to put the winter gloves on but at least the heated grips worked well.
