Both Antoinette and I had superb day.

Big thank you to Paul and Kathleen for providing Pimms and the reason to drink it.

Sorry if I was not on top form....I can confirm that it is a two day hangover!

Thank you to Richard for allowing me a few spins on his boat and to Paul who on the ringo was the funniest thing all day. Also well done to Howard for getting up on the wakeboard on about the 3rd or 4th attempt.

Until the next one I will bring 'Kismet' and lets hope that Anto's back continues to get better.

Good to meet all peeps; some old friends and a chance to make some new ones too.

M & A

Awesome Day

Huge thank you to Kathleen & Paul, for such a fun day and for all the grub & Blow your head off Pimms!!!

Well done to Howard who got up for the first time wakeboarding, huge grins of achievement and perservering all round on that one , plus hilarious grins of Paul surfing on my U Tube for almost 15 - 20 mins, difficult to drive a rib with tears of laughter streaming out of your face.

Cool gave of rounders if you did manage to get passed first base without being taken out by either Carly (git) or Jimbo!!!.

Wicked day all round.

myself jimbo and nick (biggles) stayed the night on the beach!! Started raining about 11 pm last night, and jimbo had a new tent so thought he would try it out, but couldnt be bothered to put it up properly, so got very wet during the night. Was raining loads this morning, so decided to pack up and leave for home as everything was very wet, and very very sandy (beaches are not the easiest things to camp on!!). Got back to pompey after a fairly rough crossing about 10 this morning. Good time had by all tho. Shame about the rain tho

I feel this must be rephrased. Jimbo had a brand new tent, never even taken out of the packaging, and Nick (Biggles) and Jimbo had a hard time putting it up last night - with Rich convincingly spouting that he knew exactly how to do it and it wouldn't be a problem. Nick and I spent ages putting the tent up (it was done properly!) however the bit Rich neglected to mention (but that was fitted on his own tent) was that we had omitted a 50cm square bit of tarp that formed a roof over the centre of the dome! Therefore, the dome did leak slightly...

Fantastic weekend, yesterday was absolutely beautiful and it was great to meet so many people. Weather this morning not so good, especially as I am now sitting at work waiting for my charter yachts to re-appear, but a great experience all round!

Hi all,

Thanks for an interesting weekend. Kathleens Pimms was excellent. Even the salad flavoured pimms.
I must say that the night on the beach wasn't the best nights sleep I've had. I found it really annoying the fact that every 30 minutes when I woke up for one thing or another Jimbo appeared to be soundly asleep. And it wasn't until daybreak that I worked out why my feet were soaking, that missing cover for the roof, Doh. Next time we pick somewhere to camp over night we need some grass. Pegs just don't stay in sand, during the night the tent even took off on my side and I had to go and put some weight on it.
The night run up to Wooton Creek was fantastic. Really got the senses going and gave you a feeling of achievement.
The journey back today was a bit scary. Force 6 with what seemed like mighty big waves in my small Searider. I was able to do a steady 11 Knots weaving my way through the largest stuff. Instead of going straight for Chichester Harbour (My Landing point) I went to Langstone because it meant less of that scary sea and then went right round Hayling back to the entrance to Chichester to land. I'm really glad I didn't have to do that journey heading in to the wind.
Right then, whens the next trip ? Must go and refuel.

Great to here that a good time was had by all. We were not able to join you yesterday due to family commitments so launched as planned from warsash at 9.00 this morning
crossing was interesting in the conditions but boat was performing well until we hit something in the water off Ryde. as a result we now have a damaged prop that will be off to steel developments for repair in the morning. Managed to limp into Cowes for a reviving caffeine injection then back to warsash
hopefully we will get the prop back fairly pronto as we are off to cornwall in 19 days for a fortnight in the Padstow area
hopefully we will make the next trip
