I agree with you on this Peter we are ready to go in the morning as the weather sites i have looked at show Sunday getting better. It has cleared up here in the last hour or so but we are a good 70miles away. Anyone with any better local info would be welcome.
Hoping to see you all soon.

Hope you all have a good day tommorow. May see some of you in Pompy in the afternoon (guess who's on patrol then )

No quarter will be given to miscreants - the planks have been greased and the yardarms polished. Any boats spotted with a BM sticker will be impounded (Well that's me banned then ) Any vessel attempting to lay a (diesel) smoke screen to cover your tracks through the harbour will have to buy the coffees in Starbucks.

Thanks for the kind invitation, but we seem to be routed to from Calshot to Cowes via Yarmouth & Ryde. So, no business from this cruise. Sorry Pete.

I don't know, Mark - you will be passing through the Dockyard Port area at sometime on your trip. We don't only stay in the harbour you know

What! You take that wobbly cat thing out through the entrance in anything other than flat calm? Brave man.

We're keeping a close eye on the weather too. We'll be at Calshot at 10am and, depending on the conditions, those who meet will decide what to do (options being: to do the cruise as originally planned or to do a shortened version or to have a 'play' in sheltered water or to give up and find a pub!).

See you tomorrow (hopefully)!
