Yarmouth weather

If any of you are still around, force 2-3 (if that) here down by Yarmouth. Couldn't tell you what it is going to do though!

Have a good one.

Tim

What a great day spoilt only by the weather causing us to return early. Much as though I would have like to stay in the IOW my boss does not have a sense of humour. Many thanks to all those involved in organising the trip and treasure hunt especially Louise and Richard B. Sorry we didnt finish it - are we to understand that it was in aid of a charity if so I will willingly contribute if you pm an address. The Pirate theme was great although I think the bloke collecting the harbour fees at Yarmouth would have made a good pirate - didnt need to dress up!
Anyway thanks once again for a great time with nice people from all over the South and beyond.
Martyn and Ann

Note: I took a few pics especially of the main body entering Yarmouth Harbour. Unfortunately cant seem to upload them on here?

Well it was a great day and I will post more pictures later. Sorry we did not say goodbye to everybody but we had to rush back to Littlehampton and got there for 16:50 just in time before the marina closed so managed to wash down the rib and put away till saturday. The return journey was rough specially round Selsy Bill quite steep seas but having the following sea made things easier. But we did get soaked and this was just about totally . The rib got swamped but the elephant trucks did their job and cleared the water from the deck very quickly. This soaking fired off my auto lifejacket.

Richard, Louise and Clan Timboli it was a great event thanks for making it happen although we only made lunch and Whiteshoes your outfit was just superb top marks also for your crew as the best dressed bunch of pirates from RibNet

Glad to hear you had a nice time.

I couldn't get all my crew together until after lunch so I planned to join you in Ryde.

Launched at Calshot and went about two miles out to sea but the spray was pounding us and the younger kids were getting frightened so we turned tail and headed back.

It was the first time I had been out in seas like that and I was pleased with the boat's and my performance - it was the soaking I didn't like.

Met up briefly with Richard when he was recovering. Hope we can all do it again on a calmer day.

Peter.
