(it'd help mine being stuffproof if I hadn't been going too fast in a following sea)

Thanks Matt, she feels quite capable all right.
Not sure my handling skills are up to the boats ability yet though

No wonder we had fun. Average windspeed yesterday afternoon around the Needles was 24 Knots gusting to 30 Knots.

Here,

http://www.weather-file.com/hurst/

This is for Hurst castle. near enough to the Needles to be relevant.

My Co pilot and I were a little taken aback when we returned to Yarmouth after visiting the Needles all full of adrenalin since we had been having a good blast about. Because as we turned South in to Yarmouth we suddenly became aware of the wind blowing up from the South west. It was a bit of a shock. And I guess on the whole way back up the Solent we wouldn't have appreciated what the wind was doing. We noticed it a couple of times when circled whilst waiting for everyone to catch up. It was a lot fiercer wind than was forecast.
Today would have been dodgy.
