Sorry had to spend some time at work actually working .....
Outline plan at present is Lymington Launch @ about 10.30 on Sat 7th (of the long easter weekend) .
The aim would not be to get round the Island , but simply get out , have some fun and get to Yarmouth for lunch and a beer and then seastate permitting head to the Needles to have taste of the conditions and allow some record of petrol use over the run. It will allow for sheltered ( calm/ flat) water in the lee of Hurst spit, maybe depending on tide rougher water through Hurst ( Matt H airborne time ...) and varying out to Needles and Alum bay etc.
Those that want to camp can I hope fairly easily in the forest , or simply drive down for a day or longer to suit .
I have a list of people who have expressed an interest and will PM probably tomorrow.
