BBQ

Will post names here if I get round to it...

Accomodation at the shebeen (never the best anyway) is stretched to breaking point but if someone falls asleep under a table that's no problem
Unless it's Manning who will need an exclusion zone because of the well documented after effects of the demon drink on his delicate systems...

I am hoping to go and collect her tomorrow...fingers crossed. If thats the case then I will have all day friday to get her sorted and ready for a day out (bunting, flags, parasols for the laydeez, you know the sort of thing).
Depending on the weather I may chuck her in at Northney or somewhere a bit nearer if needs be.
Where are most others launching/recovering?
I am quite flexible (oo er) and willing to turn up to lend a hand where required.

Havent really decided on a name yet...thought 'tifino' was better than TBA. but then...hmmm. will have to ask the kids to name it but they will only suggest something to do with bananas.

Oh and the weather for the weekend........emotional.

On Saturday, don't forget that the "Black Jack" buoy marks the northern limit of the "area of concern" (big ships have difficulty manoeuvering around the Bramble Bank) and they have a moving exclusion zone extending 1000m ahead and 200m to the side of them.

There's also powerboat and RIB racing based at Warsash Sat and Sun.

You're very demanding.

Hants Co Council have been up all night with the paintbrushes.
