Yarmouth lunch - 31 March 2012

To mark the last day of the winter derestiction of speed limits in the main channels of Poole Harbour, Scuvy Crew (now home from Uni for Easter) and I are planning on having lunch (nachos) in Yarmouth tomorrow.
We'll be leaving Poole (at speed!) around 11.30 with a view to being in The Wheatsheaf by 12.30 if anyone wants to join/meet us.
David

Hi David, would love to have come over on this one, but now have a charter from 2-4, but will be out after this for some crew training and general handling, so meet up with you on your return

We'll be in the area - but heading for Weymouth on the Biboa cruise. Due to meet off Yarmouth at 12,00 then heading to Weymouth for lunch in Portland Marina.
We may decide to Nacho 1st with you then poodle on to Weymouth for late afternoon rather than late lunch in Portland.
I'll see what Rick decides in the morning

You "old" dog!

We'll probably arrive there (teenagers permitting: don'tcha love 'em!) around noon. Whoever's there, we'll see you (good to see you Trev and Nick if you can) .... hope to hook up with Steve later, although we may be back home by 4.00pm. Which direction is the charter?

David

Go-Pro woes

Trev
What a great weekend's boating.
But there was good news and bad news...
Good news..
After meeting Avocet we went of to Weymouth and got lots of Go Pro footage including going through Durdle Door itself (yes - through the arch). On Sunday had fun off Portland Bill - again lots of good action.
Bad News...
On the way back going past Anvil Point the GoPro's suction mount decided to detach itself from the consol and the whole lot went overboard! It may be water and shock proof but it doesn't float . So just off Anvil Point there is a great camera on the Sea Floor - probably perfect condition and some interesting footage!
Better News....
Our home contents insurance has agreed (so far) that we can claim for it - so I should only lose 50 excess rather than the whole amount.

Moral of the story - maybe obvious - but either have a lanyard or similar attached to the camera in case it falls in - or buy the "Floaty Back" attachment so you can have a chance of getting it back. This would have been enough to have saved mine as I knew exactly where it fell overboard and had stopped within about 20 yards of it going overboard.

I'm disappointed about losing the camera - but more gutted about losing the footage and photos from the weekend!
Trev

I feel for you Trev man, no wonder you didn't wave back as you rounded Calshot.

How deep is the camera? did you make a note of the location? Gopros will last a while under water.....



Anyone dive on here?
