Probably 9.30-10.00 I'd think.

Just taken a look at Met Office forecast. Wind has veered to SW F5 but with LW at around 11.00 at least the tide will be going the same way and neap tide will help. Return trip will be easier - would want to be back before 3-4pm for comfort though.

We have found that if one hugs the Island shore, with the wind in the SW you do get a slight lee. This seems more apparent from Newtown onwards.

Just a thought.

Could bring a bottle of Vodka along or perhaps you would prefer some BP
on second thoughts one should not drink when on the water but a sip to keep warm is permitable.

I see that the LAmpton ribsters are down for 10AM in Haslar. The tide this weekend is not on our side and to get there for 10, weather permitting, we will have to leave the ribs on the water on Saturday and leave LA before 8AM Sunday cos later very low water. Only the weather will prevent us coming
Hopefully see you guys Sunday morning

Steve, Phil, Tony we launch Saturday about 11 AM and weather permitting we head for the Owers to meet up with Mike C

Any suggestions for the best place to cross from the Calshot area to the island side. I hit it right on the nose last time I went across and after realised it might be better taking the long route clockwise round the North passage and Bramble bank to get easier conditions. Anyone know if this is the case ?

Well at least the weather is looking better for Sunday than I feared.

Still isn't going to be shorts weather though.

Mike I probably won't be able to leave until 0930 hrs as my son has his paper rounds to sort out. Probably launching on the low tide, should be fun.

Not bothered what time I come back. No rush in that department at all.

The final list:

Haslar (1000)
Tim M (2) – Cormorant 2 (Ribcraft 4.8)

Nasher (& Jimbo) (4) – Nashers Revenge (6m Ocean)
Hugh Jardon (4) – Viper (6.5 Osprey Vipermax)
Pete 7 (4) – Old Spice (Pac 22)
Steve Green (2)
Phil Chitty (2) (6m Osprey)
Andre (5/6) - Seahawk 4 (Parker 750RS)

Calshot (1100)
BenC (2+) –
Intrepid (7m Tornado)
Pressman (4) – Pressman (Carson 900)
Andy Moore (4) Ditherer (6m Avon)
AndyB007 (4)
CJL (?) – Northern Exposure (Ribtec 585)
RJH (4),
Ian McConnel (?),
Peter J (3), Eigth Child (5m RIBx)
Lostyboy (4),
Ian M (?), (5m XS)
MikeCC (5.4 Searider)
Neal (4) - Dragon Khan (5m Tornado)

Yarmouth (1300)
nos4r2 (2)
Slimtim (1) – Hotshot (5m Shakespeare)
Biggles (1) –
Zerstörer (Ribtec 585)

Looks like its going to be a bit choppy so dry-suites and helmets might be advisable for added comfort. As Biggles said 77 is good for coms. Also If anyone wants to make it known that they won’t be coming on the day they might like to txt me on 07717 827393. Same again if you are going to be a bit late, then we can wait for you rather than leaving you behind. Yarmouth harbour master and the Kings head have been contacted and are aware of our numbers so we should be well catered for.

As usual this is a casual cruise; skippers are responsible for their boats and the people on them – RIBnet nor I can be held responsible for anything that happens. Obviously we will all keep a good look out for each other, and it should be a great day out.
Biggles, if you would like to orgnasie this “line-up” that would be great

Tim,

With regards the line up. Once we all meet in the middle of the Solent. I will definately be there. Then we can do the line up. I don't have a problem with controlling it.

Lets aim for 10 meters between each RIB (22 RIBs equals 220 meters, I think)off Gurnard Ledge. I will base myself on the South side. maybe with Pete7 in the middle and Nasher on the Northern side. that will make a yellow RIB at each end with the Thunderbox in the middle.

Thanks - makes sense to me.

I meant from a wind against tide viewpoint - the tide will start coming back the other way by 3-4pm, so might be a bit more lively!
