Leave Yarmouth around 1.30 to head to Weymouth for drinks.
Dinner in the Royal Dorset Yacht club at 19.30

Leave Weymout around 10am
Sunday lunch at the Royal Solent Yacht Club.

The cost per person for the weekend is 72.50, This includes B & B at the Crown Hotel , 4 Course Meal at the Yacht Club Saturday night and the Sunday Lunch in Yarmouth.

Weymouth 2006

Evening Everyone,

Could all those joining us on the run to Weymouth please return the forms with a Cheque made out to Mr R. Lyas as soon as possible. Both the Crown hotel and the Yacht Clubs have now given us a deadline for this and we wont be able to book people in. The caterers will only provide enough food for a set number of people etc.

So far we have 34 people confirmed.

All the best

Julian

A big thanks to everyone that made it at the weekend. The weather was not great and the seas were rough but most of us that set out made it apart from a couple with engine problems in Poole bay which was not a nice place to be.

Plenty of drinks were had as usual and I hope every body enjoyed themselves.

All the best

Julian

Seahawk 4 set out from Littlehampton just before 9AM with Paul Lemmer and myself on board. The weather was bad and at Selsy Bill it was blowing a F6 at the time. F6 was no big deal and we managed to get past Selsy Bill without any problems. We then headed for the IOW and tucked to the shore where we could reach speeds over 40knots. We got to Yarmouth in no time where we first refuelled and then enjoyed a lunch with the rest of the cruise participants.
Having left Yarmouth and got into Poole bay we then experienced the first signs of trouble. The engine began to cut off and eventually stopped totally. After several attempts to restart we had no option but to drop anchor and call the Solent coastguards who then put us on to the Portland Coastguards. A Pan Pan was then made . In the meantime we managed to restart the engine and called off the Pan Pan. We headed for Southampton waters where we were going to leave the rib and collect with a trailer the following day. Heading back we even managed to go over 40knots only from time to time the engine management system would shut down the engine. On route we met BenC, who was out on his Tornado, and he guided us to his marina in Warsash. We got there under our own steam. The next day the engine started first time. I do not know what caused this problem , perhaps bad fuel in Yarmouth , engine management fault. A service will be done next week and hopefully Adrian the service dealer will enlighten me as to what caused this problem.

Most angry about this cos missed a good cruise

To summaries the day my thanks go to BenC who guided us in and the next day turned up to help me recover the rib. Thanks again Ben

After this experience I am going to renew my Sea Start membership

It was a real shame as its been a while since we last caught up and only spent a few minuetes with you in Yarmouth.Main thing is you got back in one piece and hope to see you out and about soon.

All the best
