Yarmouth for lunch Saturday 6 November

Three of the four girls at work (for two of whom first time in a rib and of whom one non-swimmer) and I are thinking of going from Poole to Yarmouth for lunch at The Wheatsheaf on Saturday to celebrate our victory in the firm's pub quiz. It will need to be fairly early (say, midday) since, with the tides, we need to be back in Poole by 2.40 pm if we are to get entry into the marina before dark.

Would be good to meet up with anyone who wants to cruise in company/join us for lunch.

David

Hi Dave
Hmmm - weather for Saturday looks wet and windy, but Sunday is currently forecast to be no wind and sunny. May be able to make Saturday with Rick, but would prefer Sunday in the sun!

Not sure how much they'll appreciate being treated as televisions - but you're welcome to try: they're easy enough on the eyes!

Don't know that Saturday is all that bad at present but agree that Sunday is the better of the two.

I tend to agree on that one and Sunday gives us an extra half hour or so extra to get back into the marina because of the later tides. Let's go for Sunday instead.

Pete, I'm aiming to be launched around 10.30. After allowing for a full briefing for the newbies, should be available to RV off Parkstone Yacht Club around 10.45:? Does that suit you? If so, that should get us to Yarmouth just before 11.45 in time for lunch at midday.

In case anyone wants to run up with us from Southampton, we'll be leaving Saxon Wharf at about 10.30, may pop in to Hythe to fuel-up (can't remember how much is left in the tank) and will potter along to Yarmouth to get there for about the same time as the others.
