It was a really good day out on the water!

Safely home and boat out of the water as a bonus (they were still there at the marina!).

Trevor proved that (with some VHF use and a small telling off from Solent Coastguard - who were a little short), you can still hitch lifts on the water and get home. That's Weymouth to Hamble on three boats via Ventnor.

Good to see everyone and must keep doing things like that!

I don't know whether you could hear our exchange but it was only: call up by Trevor G, acknowledgement by me, Trevor G advising that I had just passed him. My next call was going to be to suggest a working channel but Solent interrupted with their wrist-slap which took as long as the exchange they were criticising!
They were, of course, technically correct but I still thought it a bit harsh. Hopefully, however, if ten students took the point on board some good came of it.

Yes we did hear the exchange, and actually one of the student did comment on the harshness of the CG, I used it as a teaching point and explaned that they clamp down on that type of thing because on a really busy day it can be a nuisance. However I do agree it was harsh, a polite reminder would have sufficed !!

This thread got me thinking ...

I wonder if the power of Rib.Net could get someone around the UK by hitching a lift from all those on here???

The logistics would be very interesting and not cost any one person a huge amount of money or time, other than the person doing the whole trip

That sounds like the basis of a great charity event perhaps for the rnli ? Might also be a record breaker type of event.
