I am tempted to have a blast tomorrow, I have some things to do in the morning first and should be launching at around 10:30ish. Can't meet for lunch but would be good to met up on the water. What are your plans and if out will call you on 16 or 77.

Mrs A and I are going to Newtown Creek for lunch (and risking the wrath of the harbour master again! ). With spring high at around 12.10 and a two hour stand, there should be plenty of time for a leisurely stroll up to the pub, lunch, a drink (or two!) and stroll back. I'm aiming to get there around 12.24 but timing was never my great thing. Anybody and everybody welcome to join us .

Your really into self punishment, aren't you

Have a great day! It's too far West for me tomorrow, I'm gonna see what I feel like, but might just poke my head into Wooten and see if the Sloops open.

I'll be monitoring 16 and 77 if anyone cares to call.

We Avocets are gluttons for punishment!..... but we're also gluttons for anything that the New Inn at Shalford chooses to serve us!

Have a good trip and a pint for me....... and I'll have one for you!

I dont know when you last went to the sloop, but they now do a carvery. During the week it is 3.50 and the place is heaving.
On a sunday they jack the price up tp 6, so it could be quieter.

Nick.

as HW was at a good time we decided for a change to head for lunch to Newtown. Moored up next to the Bargeman's Rest. Nice pub and good food

Did anyone hear the Mayday at around 2 PM. a 7.5 mtr rib known as Grey White got caught on a lobster pot somewhere south of St . Catherine's Point. Prop out of action hence the MayDay. The crew of the rib could not give the Solent Coast Guards their exact position so the CG had to ask passing vessels to be on the lookout for the rib. They were eventually spotted and once the position was given to the CG a lifeboat was despatched from Swanage. Quite a distance for the lifeboat to travel and only hope the crew of the said rib dug deep into their pockets to fill up the charity box.
Can't understand anyone going out so far without a GPS. They wanted to deploy flares only the CG told them not to.

we ended the day out getting a yachtie out of a spot of bother in the Southampton waters

will post some photos in the Gallery

Not sure how to put this!

(With GPS), Mrs A and I went to Newtown today. Pub: The New Inn - excellent pheasant (I had the last one, so no good for anyone tomorrow!). Got back safely and no sign of the harbourmaster

You went (despite GPS!) to NEWPORT not NEWTOWN (although the tides for both are important!).

I went to Newport two weeks ago - The Bargemans Rest: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=27119

We also heard the shout today for Grey White (heard "Dry White" although at my age .....)
but didn't hear the conclusion....

Hope all was well but agree with you that tasking the Swanage lifeboat for their location seemed a little strange.

David
