Well it certainly looks like a nice gathering alright. Great RN spirit of helpfulness too (cheers Daniel and Ian). Daniel please let us know if you decide on a sea route so we can phone you regularly as will happen for Senor Ian Austin.
(Every time we rang him on his last Intrepid Voyage to the Solent he was so chilled he was either munching on a cornish pasty or lighting a fag )
Giles...even if you can't make it this time there will be loads of other spins and if you're in the area anytime give us a shout.

Right. Tim Griffin has sent in tidal info as follows :

"POMPEY HW 1243 4.8 LW 0559 0.4
SOUTHAMPTON HW1203 LW 0551 0.2
LYMINGTON HW 1140 3.2 0539 0.1
low tide is AM going to High it will be a big spring so interesting conditions if the wind is still from the East' "


(Thanks Tim )

Would be immensely grateful for weather info too as soon as someone's got it. Any time we look it up someone organises a rain dance somewhere and it changes 5 mins before we go out

(Don't forget if you're around Saturday Night there will be an invasion of someone's home. BYO rules apply. Please send pm if you are keen )

  • Andy ...Sunday is still the reserve day for the Saturday plan until we are near enough in time to rely on weather reports.However if Sat goes ahead the Sunday will involve another Solent blast and perhaps Cowes this time? Look forward to seeing you.
  • Chris (CJL) is happy to 'go public' with his mobile number and here it is 07968 351721. He will be a point of contact for all West Solenteers Please note : He will be launching from the lifeboat slip at 11.00 a.m.
  • Peeps are thinking about some nice photo opportunities (e.g. Needles/ Hurst as above). Robin also suggested Southsea and he is happy to take some there. All depends on time.
  • (Need to correct typo in earlier post (sorry Kim ) . Willowkis' site is www.ribsters.net of course )
  • A few of us tested the Solent Waters today and despite some rainy, snowy and haily fronts....well it was brill and tcwozere has an amazing new boat altogether
  • Here's hoping for good weather next weekend.
