We (myself and the better half) are intending to come out to play tomorrow - boat is moored at Fareham so the tides fall about right for us. It will be our first ribnet trip so be gentle with us! Have made it to a couple of Church meetings a few months back but new job & other commitments have got in the way recently. Looking forward to this and hopefully a few more trips over the winter should the weather be kind

Pete (and Jan)

Everyone have an enjoyable and safe trip tomorrow, sorry I couldn't make it and as I sit here on the works computer wishing I was in a hotter climate enjoying a cocktail on a secluded beach with RIB anchored just off shore.....Then I wake up

Take some good pics of the day and don't forget to post some here so that all the good folks that can't make it can see what you got up to.

Thanks Andy sorry the date clashed with your work but last weekend was a howler!

It was cold in the Solent area today and if the wind's easterly it will be very nippy tomorrow also. Drysuit and thermals weather really !

Will do a penultimate round-up post in a minute when we get together all available details.

We often use Chn 77 for comms or Paul's mobile 07790 551442. If you are happy to have your mobile number in the public domain, please post (otherwise pm or 'phone Paul).

For some reason Metcheck has gone crazy. Most forecasts show about 13 mph westerlies. Lee on Solent shows nearly double that.

Lets see what happens.

Cheers Noddy. Never too late to update! We will post an ultimate list before we go!

Thanks for weather Biggles. It does forecast a bit blowy although the Inshore Solent forecast on Metcheck is still showing F3-F4. It should feel very parky so if anyone's in doubt, it should be a lot more comfy on the sofa today!

Regret that we too have succumbed to seasonal bugs and will be unable to make it - even though boat in water and ready. Very sorry to miss what would have been our first Ribnet run. Here's to the next, hopefully! Have a great time.

Hope you're better soon Avocet and look forward to meeting up next time

Paul's off to sort the boat & we'll post a final update before leaving.

We have a few mobile numbers and a list. Will check in with The Folly in a minute

Western Solent

Assuming no stop planned in Cowes for Coffee, I will (on my own ) be leaving Lymington Yacht Haven (Fuel quay) at 12.30 en route to Folly. Would be very happy to have a 'buddy' if anyone is coming from the West, but no need to make a special trip!!
