Hi Trevor - can't make it either as the boat is at Bembridge getting serviced. Had a nice run over from Poole on wednesday and took the train home. We collect the boat again next week so we'll certainly be up for future trips this winter

Saturday was one of the best days we've had on the water in ages. The weather was sunny, dry, and warm! The sea state in the Solent was a good rolling swell rather than short chop, and it was very, very quiet. Hardly anybody about enjoying it all, surprisingly.

We did see Blue Ray on her way back home, a bit too far away to wave. But the best bit for me was standing by as my 16-yr old daughter successfully and safely helmed the RIB from the Hamble to the Folly and back without any intervention from me. Gotta watch that one though, she's thinks we are not moving unless we are doing 25kts.

Agreed - Saturday was winter Ribbing at it's best - good weather and not many boats out - even on the Solent.

I think we passed you just off Bramble Bank on the way home - next time I'll get Rick to come a bit closer - he was driving all the way back.

Now .... here's something you don't see everyday - a teenager volunteering to eat the salad with his meal!

Trevor,

Looks like he's just poking it with a look of disdain on his face. No sign of eating to me!

Normal teenager service resumes?

Proof that he did eat some of it - but I think his friend's face says it all concerning whether this is "normal" or not!
