Fantastic to see you all.
And it was a great privilege to be 'out there' on such a wonderful day.
Martin and Anto thanks for rounding us all up
The Solent was well-behaved and two boatloads peeled off to Cowes for the day (great to see ye team Halliday & team Neal ) while 9 boats went to Yarmouth. Martin drove Zeb like he was in a powerboat race
Slimtim was on the pier, camera at the ready
and Dave took a break from the paperwork...with the sun shining Yarmouth gets all mediterranean but the fuel pumps get busy...
Big monster boats gas guzzling. Great surprise to see Dennis already there with the very beautiful 'Cara'.
After a leisurely lunch the Needles were mentioned and off we went. Pacifics are getting remarkably popular as photo platforms and Andy, Ricky and Michelle just blasted ahead and waited to get those unique shots.
The waves made a little effort for us out there
but when we went to Scratchells Bay , Team Lunasea (zapcatters Craig and Adam) took over playing with the shore dump like there was no tomorrow...
Gotta mention that Howard was in a T Shirt all day (mind you it was a 'London Irish'
). That Revenger always looks great Ian. And as usual the condition of DJL's boat put us to shame
It was hard to leave! Some gathered at Cowes for the sundowners and some of us Pompey Lot had grub and drinkies in Port Solent. 'Rock steady' Antoinette helmed Pete's Pac all the way home
Great to meet a few new peeps too (especially a new neighbour Graeme!)
and hope to see you all again soon. Certainly felt really grateful to have been part of a fantastic trip
on a superb March day.
