Sorry, been off the boards for a while so only just noticed this. Sea Drive has been out once this year cos the weather / tide combination on just about every weekend hasn't been right.

I was all set for a fantastic weekend of boating this weekend including the Smalls etc... but seeing the charts has completely trashed those ideas.

When we were out a few weeks back, the sea was like carpet, and out at the islands, all the wildlife was out providing plenty of noise and colour. Didn't see any Dolphins, but there were a couple of Porpoise hovering around about 50metres abeam of us for some of the journey west of Skomer.

Will keep an eye on this thread to see if anything happens

-Alex

I will be staying in the area from 7th to 15th June and will be spending as much time as possible on the water either launching when necessary or leaving the boat in a marina. Hopefully I will be doing some waterskiing, fishing and cruising to the islands. If anyone wants company during this period let me know and we will see if we can get something sorted.
Alex, we did mention this a long time ago, are you looking to get out during this period or are you work bound?

I'll be out on the water perhaps both days this weekend, from around lunchtime onwards.
On Saturday it'll be more interesting on the river cos there are a few displays happening in conjunction with the combined Port Authority and Coastguard open day.... helicopter winching stuff off the big MCA rescue tug + the Svitzer tugs will (hopefully) be soaking as many people as possible too with their fire fighting displays.

Also around in June - I can take a day or so off when required if needed and the weather is good.... just hope it's better than the last weekend which was a wash out.

-Alex

Alex, I was hoping to launch around 1ish, have you got any more info on the displays, where they will be happening, timings etc. I was hoping to take a few people out for a wildlife cruise to Skomer but the displays could be a bonus. If Saturday goes well I may be back out on Sunday, get in touch over the weekend when you have a firm fix on times you are going to be out there.
