Ventnor - Sunday 21 March for lunch

With high tide at Ventnor at 2.00pm and with clear weather currently forecast (although with something of a westerly wind!) does anyone feel adventurous with a view to meeting in Yarmouth on Sunday and lunching at The Spyglass in Ventnor for a change?

David

Halfway through PB2 - day one completed. - At the moment we are planning on being in Yarmouth anyway Saturday night, sleeping on another boat though!

So, it's a possible for us.

Will follow the thread with interest.

Hi David

There is a possibility of bringing the Parker from Southampton back to her new berth in Poole on the Sunday. I was thinking of stopping at Yarmouth for lunch, but now you have got me thinking ......
If we come out on the Sunday, it would be better for us to go East about and meet you all at Ventnor. Would like to be there for about 12, as some friends need to be back at Poole 1430ish.
Steve

Hi Steve

From speaking to DizzyLizzy on Wednesday, he and a couple of others are also coming from Southampton/Hamble direction and an Eastward trip might make more sense with the forecast Westerly wind. That would mean a RV off Cowes at, say, 11.00am to get to Ventnor for midday. If NautiSeacrets is still interested, I'll be passing Yarmouth at about 10.30am and can RV with him there.

I've also just checked the tide times: HT Ventnor on Sunday is 14.49. Not sure where I got 2.00pm from! Harbour depth should still be OK for midday.

David

Hi Bogi

The British operation of IcelandAir must be thanking you for keeping it in business!

If you've got any free time whilst your down our way, give us a call: I'm free this evening and most of tomorrow.

if the forecast holds it should be lovely. we are both hold up with stinking colds at the moment so think some brisk cold air is not the best idea for us! shame cos we really want to do a round the island soon!

If we do go out on Sunday, I may have a few spare seats if anyone would like a ride out.
Just be awate that it would be a one way trip, Southampton to Poole Quay, via Ventnor.

PM for details
Steve

Hi Dave - I'm still waiting to confirm that I have any crew - but at the moment the plan to meet off Cowes at about 11 seems a sound one. I'm not sure as yet if Stormbreaker and Ocean Devil are still on for Sunday - but if they are, they will be starting from the same drystack as 250kts.
Note to self - must fix the small leak in my waders tonight. Llast week I spent all Sunday with a wet right foot!
