Good to get out with everyone again today, and thanks to Landlord for being First Mate and making it possible to get out on the water.

Downloaded the GPS tracks and see we hit 44kts on the way home

Interesting...I was already half way turned back before I asked Trevor if he was happy to go back ! And we went from a 30knt cruise to a 40+ knt return... Not sure I'd want to end up the water today if I wasn't expecting it .
Did I miss something? We got a DSC alert on leaving the Hamble, but (assuming I'm reading it right) it looked like a distress relay for Highland Daughter off Shoreham harbour

Erm, my GPS

I carry a simple datalogger in my pocket on trips, then link the tracks to my logbook, because ... well I'm just a bit geeky like that

The track is shown on a customised chart, so I can see where we went with reference to the bouyage, again just for my own information/education.

As we were so close, it didn't even occur to me that you might consider asking - turning back to see if help was needed was the obvious choice to me as well!

Great day out, and good to see new faces.

- and now I've read the power steering pump info, I'm 95% sure it's just a problem with the main power cable to it rather than a mechanical / fluid problem

There was Pan Pan call from a boat 'capacity' with MOB between Calshott and the mainland..just as we were about a mile away...Solent CG were on it in seconds and listening to the radio seemed to have a DF fix on the boat and within 120 secs of the first call had tasked both lifeboat and CG helicopter to them

MOB was recovered and lifeboat remained tasked to attend and deal etc .

I saw folks stop and turn back momentarily, but completely missed the pan pan call, which is a bit rubbish (of me)

Falling into the water, especially at this time of year, would be a mayday in my book. But sounds like there was a good outcome thankfully.
