Solent - Sunday 30 December 2007

Matt and I are thinking of heading down to the solent this Sunday for a blast over to the IOW and perhaps lunch at the Folly.

Anyone else planning to be out.

Weathers looking good at the moment

Chris

hmmm...
will have to findd out if I can have the boat craned in or not... Drivers are kind of closed and wanted pre-booking for launches

If she can be craned in, I might change the flights again and go back to work Monday.. will keep an eye on thread and ask some questions tomorrow... the forecast was looking promising a couple of days ago for Sunday... but it might be quite churned up from the proceeding days

where are you likely to launch from?

well, flights are changed and launch is booked for tomorrow, so I now have to go out whatever happens, unless the forecast chages dramatically by tomorrow and I have time to cancel the launch...

so looking forward to some good weather and a good run to blow the cobwebs away!
