Tuesday 30 August 2005

Off round the IOW on tuesday. Will be leaving Langstone about 1200 hrs and going Anti clockwise. Stopping at Yarmouth for lunch and probably Sandown for "tea and tiffin". Looks like a nice day and should be quieter than the weekend.

I will be listening out on VHF and can be contacted via MMSI if any one wants to join me.

Andy,

Very nice run out. Sea was kind although a little rough between the Needles and St Catherines Point. Then it was amazingly calm for the rest of the trip. The sea was just like a mirror.

We got quite a late start. Leaving the Haslar Lightship about 2 O'Clock. Had a late Lunch in the Wheatsheaf at Yarmouth. Then blasted round the rest of the island getting back to Langstone about 7 O'Clock.

I was accompanied by a 1970's Flatacraft with a Yamaha 30 on the back, 80's vintage, which coped very well until we went past the Needles and then the occupants started to get very wet. Can't fault the Flatacraft and its engine though. It did the job.

Getting some pics on Friday so will post them then.

Regards Nick R.
