Today was excellent, very exhilarating and I certainly don't blame anyone for giving it a miss. BenC has got some video footage but it really doesn't do justice to the wind strength or the size of the waves!

Ozz - i must admit it was rather amusing to see you dissappear into a wave and reappear wet, very wet! Hope the boat is ok though!

Looking forward to the next time!

Was a great day, was good to put names to faces. It would have had to of been extemely bad weather today to stop me and Gray going out to jump a few waves.

Was envious of bojangles - was a very smooth ride from where we were sitting, until the spectacular stuff! But saying that, for the first proper run with my new engines, can see how much they have helped the boat, instant power whenever its needed! We were close to stuffing a few times, but the high bow on the tornado really helped keep the nose up.

I couldn't believe seeing Nos4r2 turn up in the searider - but it is a very capable boat, as proved today!

I started my camera leaving yarmouth, and recording us messing around on the way to the needles (got some nice air time). I will get it uploaded over the next few days and post a link.

Thanks all for a great day! See you again soon I hope!

We made it back Ok.... bloody hell I'm sore and I'm still grinning
Nice to put names to faces too.

It was quite an uneventful trip back over to Lymington. We made 14-18 knots all the way across.

I do owe Pete & Nasher a BIG thanks for collecting our gear after that stuff- water comes in, gear goes out... I would have been in serious trouble if I'd lost that food flask and the camera. Cheers guys!

It's not the size its what you do with it JK

Yeah, good little blast for me and mike. Encountered some interesting conditions off fort albert!

Thanks to all buzzed around for photos, was good to see new and old faces and hope everyone got back ok.

I have uploaded 20 images to my site, there are a few others of much the same. Click on "events" and then follow the appropriate link. If anyone wants prints, prices are on my site (take off 10% for RIBnet niceness). Make sure you check out the pics of Pressman doing an impressive stopping-on-a-dime trick!

Biggles, didn't realise you were trying to organise the in-line formation off yarmouth, I would've had the camera out if i'd known!

Cheers

Tim

Talking out of your barnacle-ridden bottom again. Any ribster knows that you bottled it again and stayed shoreside because us soft southern shites pass the Black Pearl up on it's cradle in Endeavour Quay every time we go out.

A land-lubber pirate? Must be an estate agent!!
