Thank you all for a great day.
Ryde back to calshot took up about 3 times longer than usual, very steep cresting waves right on the nose all the way back. I can safely say we didnt stuff it all day but we did come very close once or twice

Cheers

What can I say that has not already been said?

Great day out, good company, lots of ribs and smiley people.

Weather was fine for me but I did not have any passengers to look after so just had loads of fun whilst spitting out the spray...


Here's to the next one


Doug (minus family this time...)

I can't imagine JK laughing, he seemed like such a nice bloke.
As it was HW we decided to take the short route via the Looe Channel and that is where we encounted the worst conditions. I would say that the waves were more or less 6-8 feet high. A funny feeling when you are on the top of a wave and it is still rising. You get the feeling that you are not moving forward at all until you look at the land and see that you are moving and then sudden acceleration and down you go.
as for the laughing well we all had a good laugh at the end and we are all nice blokes Aren't we?

I think the worst waves we've been on on Zeb were on Chi Bar
