Sunday 6th Feb - Yarmouth Nacho Run

Hi All
Anyone interested in coming out this Sunday (6th Feb) for a Nacho Run to the Wheatsheaf in Yarmouth?
It's meant to be a bit breezy (South Westerly F5, gusting 7) but not too cold.
I'm aiming to get there from Southampton for about 12.30.

I'm looking forward to it! Should be able to run up close to the IOW to get a bit of shelter on the way there.

Yep, good plan. We popped out today, although windy the sea was pretty flat and easy to open her up to WOT.

Apparently Bramble was gusting F8, certainly didn't feel like that.

Didn't see anything of the Naval exercise due to the low cloud and drizzle, and only saw one other boat out, a couple of yachts with storm sails up.

We'll be coming out of the Itchen about 11.15.

if the wind is anything like today, I would think really hard about going.
This morning the wind had a lot of south in it and was not too bad.

However this afternoon we went out from Cowes heading for Yarmouth way and it was way too rough. Coming back was even worse, the wind was a steady 7 with gusts higher, and we were still slightly in the lee of the Island.

A few degrees shift in the wind will make a huge difference in the sea state, and we cant rely on the wind will staying in the same direction all day.

Dont get fooled by leaving in the lea of land and get stuck later.

Anyway your all big enough and ugly enough to make you own decisions/errors

I think the wind is due to drop a bit tomorrow, so hopefully it won't be too bad. If it is we'll lunch in Cowes, or if it's really bad we'll lunch up the Hamble!

We'll be heading out at about the same time from the Itchen as well
If you can, give me a call or text on my mobile when/if you are getting ready, or if you decide against going and we can try and meet up (or not).
Where are you starting from up the Itchen? We're at Saxon Wharf.
Trevor

Well - we made it!
NautiSecrets - it was good to meet up again. It was probably a wise move diverting to Cowes because although our run up to Yarmouth was pretty smooth once we got round the first headland after leaving Cowes, by the time we left Yarmouth the tide had turned so it was a quite exciting roller coaster ride back with wind over tide (ie it was bigger than it was when we crossed the Solent to Cowes, but for a lot longer time!).
Avocet - great to meet again - we monitored your Coastguard reports so know you got back OK!
Conditions like today are what ribs were meant for!

Hmm - you're right of course - I must have a go at fitting a mount for the camera - it's been on my "to do" list for ages!
