Southampton this weekend

Hello All

I am planning a trip out on Saturday launching on the Itchen by the bridge mid morning if anyone is going to be around.

Just a general run as the boat has just been collected from the the dealer after de winterisation.

Peter

touchy. I don't put you in the category of 'Southern Wuss' anymore Ricky after your efforts on Sunday.
After seeing the 'wavelets' you get on the Solent I wasn't shocked that a number of people turned over and went back to sleep! Only the mad bas*ards went out on Saturday!

BTW that was Top Bananas GPS records, BJ had to turn back for him on one occasion.

Here is a still from one of the video clips.

so you got some decent air time then

what's going to happen when you get to north wales? - will the welsh waves assist in getting you closer to the clouds?
