Weekend

To all those who took part this weekend in Weymouth. A big thank you for attending and braving the weather. A great weekend was had by all. Shame we could'nt all make it back by sea as at 10.00am it was blowing a severe gale force 9. Well done to those who did make it and especially to Daniel in the 4.8 boat. Well done.

Julian

Why o Why?

Juilian

Thanks for a great night out, but why did we have to feel like pooh on Sunday morning? It took a lot of careful negotiation for Steve and myself to be let out for the night and what happens ?You ply us with drink knowing full well that we will get into all sorts of trouble the next day when we arrive home with that sickly grin on our faces that says " I am OK"

Never the less, it was great to see so many new faces at an event that was started ten years ago, and lets hope that we can keep it all going for another ten when we can have a re run. !

PS it did not look that rough from the car window!

Did Gordon scoff all the lunches?

Made It

Hi Richard

Yep there was about 15 of us made it to the yacht club. Very nice lunch but most people seemed to be suffering from a hangover. The ferry journey from Lyminghton was horrible. Thanks for coming hope you enjoyed it.

Julian.

We left Weymouth at 8.45 along with ‘flyte’ and ‘selva’. The sea wasn’t that rough and we had a nice 27kt run to the beginning of the firing range, by which time we lost sight of ‘selva’. I’m not sure whether ‘flyte’ didn’t know that the range was firing or just didn’t care but they headed straight through. At this point the waves had started to grow and the thought of going 6 miles of shore wasn’t that appealing so we followed.

Somewhere between Lulworth cove and St. Albans Head, we lost out lighting pole and VHF antenna and were trailing several metres of cable. After rushing to the back of the boat to survey the damage, we noticed that the engine had died and we couldn’t get it started again. A few minutes of panic ensued until I realised that I had pulled the kill cord.

Although it was a lot rougher on Sunday the ride was more comfortable than Saturday. The waves were much bigger so we were able to ride over them, rather than smashing into them, which is probably why we had more luck than the bigger boats. It was however incredibly wet, the wind was blowing the tops of the waves, and even when stationary we were still getting covered in spray.

We followed ‘flyte’ as far as Studland bay, where we stopped to have a break and made the decision to go on to Christchurch.

After getting back I went to phone Julian, just to let him know where we were and that we wouldn’t be making the lunch in Yarmouth. Instead I found a text message containing Portland coastguards phone number from Mike. I thought I better ring Portland and see what was going on, only to be told that we were missing and that the helicopter was looking for us.

Thanks to everyone for a great weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to put names to faces. Thanks to the coastguard for their quick response and to those who alerted them. I hope we didn't cause too much trouble. I will be attaching the aerial to something more solid next time.

Daniel

Thanks to everyone for a brilliant weekend, especially Julian and Roger Lyas. It was great fun, if a little hectic!

Sounds like you guys were listening to what Alan Priddy had to say!

It was a great relief to speak to you on Sunday after you had returned to shore. After having found your mobile number, I was constantly ringing it whilst Mike co-ordinated actions through Roger and the Coastguard.

Thanks again, Julian, certainly did enjoy it. Good to hear that lunch didn't go to waste!

There's a couple of pictures in the gallery now, sorry not much opportunity for more of them from the weekend.

Hi Richard

Great photos once again. You should become the BIBOA's camera man. Is Peters boat still in Weymouth. If it is I am going back on Saturday to pick ours up from the marina.

There's probably going to be a few there.

Julian

You should have good weather for your return journey...
