Solent Tomorrow (24 July)

Hi all,

If you're out in the Solent tomorrow and see a white/grey Avon RIB (four on board hopefully!) give us a wave - we'll be launching out of Calshot about 10:30, heading over to Portsmouth and Port Solent for a bit of shopping, then back over to Cowes area before a final blast up towards Hurst Castle and back.

Happy sailing wherever you are.

Andy Beach

I'll be out bright and early tomorrow morning before the sea breeze kicks in. Want to get on the wakeboard for the first time this year! I'll be off Yarmouth.

Have a good day in the sun.

Tim

Well that's nice ain't it. Don't bother inviting any of the hardboaters any more. Keep it secret why not. I guess 'The Grumble' doesn't really cut it once you've circumnavigated the world and become a superstar. And Carl. WTF? I am so gonna code such a fecking big virus in yer website now for this treacherous behaviour. I do have a demo version of the site ready, but I think I'll have a strop instead.
