What a great day out. Many many thanks to Clan Timboli and Louise & Richard for setting it all up. Fantastic, can't wait for the next one.
There were some very devious minds at work. Anagrams, spot the spot, word searchs, dog poo, treats for the kids and much much more.
Sorry we had to cut and run from Ryde, but school tomorrow for Natasha.
No sign of mutiny from the crew, even when I stuffed it off Cowes.
Hope those of you who kept going to the bitter end returned safely from the Folly.
Yet again it was nice to fit some more name to faces.

Hi All
What a fantastic day with fantastic people. So glad we changed our minds at the last moment and went (thanks for waiting for us). Sorry we popped off a little early and could not say thank you in person to all who were involved in making today happen but we all enjoyed the event. It was our first trip out to Yarmouth and only our 3rd outing in our boat and she performed very well.
The kids had great fun and enjoyed the pirate theme.
The hard work put in was appreciated.
Hope all got home safe.

Hi great day thanks to all involved in the organising.
We had a very lively trip back from Ryde.
Looking at http://www.bramblemet.co.uk/wind.htm
It was blowing a F5 to F6! Got a bit wet, but all well & still smiling.
Thanks again great to see so many people & putting faces to names!
Nick

Brilliant, thanks.

Thanks Timboli clan, Richard & Louise for the hard work you put in and a great day out. My kids were very miffed when we had to leave early after several soakings (at which all but my youngest laughed like Hyenas), as they had answered every question at Yarmouth including the pictures. Took me half hour to find them - and when I did they were on the harbour wall contemplating pinching an old lobster pot..... Timboli - your friend the harbour master will not forget them or forgive you!

Brilliant, thanks!

Sorry Peter, actually that was me. Too many Richard's - but his is much larger than mine. Took me a while to click why you would have sent me a text.
