Wrap Up Warm

Nauti - lol

OK Neil, that's a rosy-cheeked day ahead!

Important news though - winds are light and conditions should be fair.

Sincere thanks for the weather updates!

Next, will re-post list once we've had a dekko to see who might be out!

Crisp Crimbo Weather For Motor Boat People

Folly Jolly Sunday 16th
The annual RIBnet Christmas Run to the Folly
See first post for details!

OK This Trip Is On!!!!Bruce we've tried to put the details below but please post or pm other suggestions

Commiserations to those of you who could have made last weekend but not this Sunday. Understandably, in homes all around the ringing sound of 'you're doing WHAT?' can be heard as the Christmas rush is on and we all succumb to the glitzy jobs.

So, The Folly.

A brief description from the website to whet your appetities. They are expecting us and we will give them a better idea of numbers when we edit the list later :

The Folly is a rustic pub perched on the banks of the River Medina, just up the river from Cowes in Whippingham, with lovely views from a large beer garden and patio. The Folly Inn is easily accessible by road or boat with its own mooring attracting a large number of both yachtsman and motor boat people (sic) along with tourists and visitors to nearby Osborne House. A friendly river taxi "The Folly Waterbus" can transport you up the river from Cowes.
History has it that The Folly originated from a barge that ran aground whilst selling illegal liquor in the 1700s!
Today The Folly Inn is an extremely popular open plan, destination food house ...


As it will be very (very) cold it won't be a great day for waiting on the water. So the suggestion is to buddy up with another boat (post or pm) and run straight to Cowes for 1.30. Moor up for a moment or so to have a hot coffee (we will bring a flask etc.) if weather is clement and then run up the Medina to The Folly. Food is served all day. Our only time pressure will be preferred departure before the light goes. We are contacting the local Harbourmaster today to check on space & ferry crossing. Hope this sounds like an OK plan but don't hesitate to post other suggestions as appropriate! (Pompey People we are aiming for The Lightship at 12.00 to kickstart the day with a coffee or two!)


LIST : still needs amending! Some names have been down for yonks and people may have changes of plan. Others may like a last-minute join in

I've succumbed to one of the many bugs going around, so I'm cancelling my plans for tomorrow to spend the day warm and dry.

I believe another boat from the RSM fleet will be joining you (Dave Rymer + daughters) so please make them welcome.

I hope you all have a great day.

Andy

Last weather update:-
http://www.metcheck.com/V40/UK/FREE/...?zipcode=Cowes

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/5day.shtml?id=3471

Met office Inshore forecast, Selsey Bill to Lyme Regis:-
Wind East or southeast 4 or 5, occasionally 6 at times.
Sea state Slight or moderate.
Weather Mainly fair.
Visibility Moderate or good.


So mixed forecasts on the wind side of things - will just have to wait and see.

Lee on Solent high tide is about 3pm, so the run from Pompey to Cowes will be with the tide (or did I remember it the wrong way round?)

I'll be out with my Dad (so Jackeens, it's Neil + 1), and Nos will be joining me (not sure if Sixy is coming cos I forgot to ask!). We're going to aim to come over to Pompey for 12, but if wind is bad and the run either way is not nice, we'll head straight for the Folly, as there's no point in going mad, and an extra hour or so in the Folly ain't going to kill anyone
