Hope everyone had a great time - sorry I couldn't join you, I was doing my APBI course out of Shamrock.

Weather was kinder than it might have been - recall only a few spots of rain.

Hope to see the photos soon

Huge Thank you to The Jackeens

For a superb day out on their Rib, this was my first cruise in company and what a cool time was had, 5 Ribs blasting around excellent fun. Even the Students were blasting alongside with us in their Rib. (I never had a Rib when I was a student, let alone have money to put fuel in the damn thing!! )

Saw Pressmans awesome beast and it really is a monster Rib!!!

Also to cap the day off the Dolphin popped up to say Hi and played with the wash from the prop, got sooooo close to it, in our way back to Port Solent

Magic

Thanks Daniel for a brilliant day out!

Our crew were excellent company (Nautibuoy & Zippy) and it was wonderful to meet everyone even a slightly 'tired' Slimtim in Yarmouth!!!

(Laser I was trying to zip past sterns as you guys weren't hanging around !!!)

Great to see everyone's boat blasting. Special mention to Tim M and crew: congrats! and of course Pressman. That's an awesome piece of kit Steve & Caroline.

Yarmouth was great as usual and the round IOW trip capped the day. The sun sulked a little but we got round, Paul's nuts intact Tim! and just as Andy and Ricky crossed to the camber there was Trevor/Solipper/Splash coming out to play. So we had to do do'nuts for a while to amuse the beautiful creature.

Dins and home to iron the work gear during Songs of Praise

Fantastic Day!!!!!!!!!!!

Gotta few photos too and will put on the photo thread Solent Spin - 27th November

Us
