hi folks as hugh posted weather is looking good a slight concern with young ribbers about is the wind. Iknow 15mph is not serious but with good tides it might chop a bit . My other concern is all these big ribs about not seen to many others going with less than 6mtrs as we will be on a 4.8 ,we may need the self righting gear in good working order!!!!!!!!
or a rope and we could be a toy behind someone else (save fuel!!!!)
lets hope the wind stays on our side and sunshines all the way .
can`t wait for sunday see you all then

colin

I'm only 4.2 and the .2 is very important

I was under the impression it was a fun family cruise not a race

we have a wide range of boats from just over 4 m to around 8 m which will be great.

We will try to adjust the pace to suit everyone and probably the best option will be to have regular re-groops so we keep reasonably together as typically everyone spreads out a bit.

the weather is looking good for the weekend so i think we are in for a good trip

as we now have a lot of boats we might be limited as to where we can reasonably stop in towns etc so i would propose the following

we can stop for a sandwich stop (perhaps consider taking sarnies and drink) at lunch time for some refreshments but our main food stop can be once we have been round the IOW on a beach for a BBQ. that way folks have plenty of time to cook etc and we can all moor up along the beach which should be fun in itself and then recount the trip as i am sure loads of folks will be keen to chat and exchange experiences. It will allow for the kiddies to have their fun on the beach and the bbq will be unhurried and folk will be free to leave when they wish. We stopped at Priory Bay last weekend so this could be a good venue also.

We use a dome bbq normally but for this trip i think we will go with disposable ones as they travel and store better on such a trip.

we will still stop at all the places of interest on the way.

Obvious i know but even if one person finds this useful then it is worth it....

Take time this week to make sure your boat is tip top mechanically, get those little jobs done etc so that hopefully we wont have any breakdowns or problems.

Familiarise yourself with the IOW and any hazzards, review the maps etc

Ensure you are fueled up and have sufficient Oil for the trip

if anyone falls in the water when on the move, the put your arm up and ensure boats surround the person in the water to stop anyone from hitting them, even inflate your life jacket so you are more visable.

remember when near someone in the water then switch off your engine

on our pwllheli cruise a guy fell out of his boat when getting his camera out at near full chat, he was lucky he just bruised his shoulder but it can happen so do take care and if there are another 20+ boats behind you it could turn into an incident

each skipper is responsible for their own boat and ensure you have your own charts and nav aids and ensure your own safe passage.

ensure you are fueled up ahead of time and allow plenty of time to slip and recover your boat as calshot will be very busy as mentioned previously, perhaps consider slipping at other slipways and we can then just meet at calshot on the water.

if a really hot day ensure you have enough drinks for the whole day

sunglasses, hats and sun cream will be important if it is 30 degrees, Browguard (Colin) has sent me a load of the sunglasses he sells so you are welcome to try them and buy some

if anyone else has any safety tips or general advice then do feel free to share as this is the first major trip/trip round the iow for some folks i believe

looking forwards to it
