If we do get lucky with the weather - but the sea state is not perfect you can always put the slightly less seasonsed SIBers onto one of the RIBS and then tuck the SIB in behind a RIB in its wake - heavy boats do tend to iron out the small chop a bit.

Pace? Not a problem, getting lost might be, I still can't get my Garmin fired up. Off to get a new fuel tit this am as mine is weeping. You'd have been proud of my 'spring low, launch at Mylor on Sunday. The car park guy reckoned I had no chance, I backed in over the mud and shoved it in the channel, then waded out pushing it with about 5" under it.

ok this shit weather is my fault . I just bought a new bike and the thunder storm started the afternoon I was due to pick it up in Falmouth . Then thick fog on the ride home .
Now this .

Whenever I buy a new bike it rains for 40 days and nights .

So this year i got a new boat and bike so the weather won't get better till next year .
Sods Law rules OK

No this crap weather is here because I sorted the garden out, put the furniture outside and set the barby up.

And the worst bit is I can't even use a hosepipe to wash my car but I can pay for a pressure hose at the local garage. How bizarre.

Good old England heh. Can't wait till I retire and F---- Off.

The weather actually looks dryer than originally forcast - problem, is they now have fairly moderate north westerlies.

I suggest we postpone the scillies trip for another weekend and all head to pentewan sands and join hugh jardon for some wakeboarding, waterskiing, inflatable towing, beach bbqs, etc, etc, etc... It will be sheltered there from the north westerlies.

EDIT : in fact the long range forecast has the following weekend 3rd/4th June looking good for a Scillies trip
