Name of vessel?

We have to be clear from Paignton slip before 9am for the tide or we can't go till 2pm.
Would be nice to have you guys flatten out the water for us on the way round but what time will you be going.

If the wind picks up to much my copilot gets a bit edgy so we were going to go round straight after we launch but not a problem to wait

Brian I'll PM you my mobile number although I do have my VHF now just not supposed to use it

We hope to stay all night if we don't get wet in the day
