Hi Nick,

We blasted off to Portsmouth after lunch had a good run up, then back to Southampton water.

Ran into Warsash to use the loos, and guess you were stil out, coss your car and trailer were still in the carpark.

But had to leave quickly as had to get back to Drivers by 5 so as not to get locked out (have no key yet).

Next time maybe.

Took a run today from Drivers, down and over to Yarmouth and back, great day, calmer than yesterday but no warmer and more overcast.

Really have to come up with a name for the new boat!!!

Neil

Neil,

If your based in Drivers now then we should bump into each other at some stage. How often do you look on going out ?
Yesterday was a lot lumpier than I expected. Sounds like today was better. Hopefully it can only get better.

regards Nick.

Nick,

I look on going out as often as possible, so far as the bank balance allows and without getting the sack!

In reality, I guess I'll try and make entire weekends of it, cutting down on the launch fees and return fuel etc. Camped down in New Forest Saturday night, and I came home today less tired than usual after two days on the water. So probably every two to three weekends. Have a long bank holiday weekend in May sometime also (Swiss holidays). So that might be good for a few runs.

How lumpy did you find it yesterday compared to the Medina Muster in March? It's difficult to guage having been on different boats!

See you around.

Neil

Neil,

About the same as the March run. Which was annoying as we all expected it to be flat calm. It was just the same outside the Solent. You could get a fair lick of speed up but had to watch for the freak waves/troughs.

Let me know when your out next. A weeks notice will usually do so i can get some crew rounded up.

Regards Nick.
