Planning to refresh there on Saturday afternoon 15-00 to 16-30 and then it's just a quick flip round to St V before the gates close at 18-10.

Dave,

You've been a busy boy. Your message box needs clearing out.

Having just got back I have a few things to catch up with but here is the first of a few photographs from the weekend.

Saturday was "fog" day as can be seen from the photo, which has been edited to reduce the fog effect.

Visibility was down to 50m at some points but having radar made life much easier.

We even came across an oil rig being towed in the channel. That gave a very good radar image!

It was a great weekend and it was good to meet Simmions0 ( Dave and Harry ) and of course Whiteshoes ( and family ).

Regards

Mark

Fantastic weather . When Mike C and I did the same trip 2 years ago we also enjoyed the same conditions it was just great.

Hopefully this weekend will be similar

Dave , Harry you are clocking up some hours , well done, see you on Saturday

I went to Guernsey on Friday - very foggy - and returned yesterday in excellent conditions.

How good did you find your radar - some of the time on Friday we were in deep troughs and relied on accompanying boats radar - wondered how you all got on
