Bit more info for you.

Ramp Description: Large wide ramp. Very shallow entry angle, which makes it easy to launch and recover. Trailer needs to be walked out a distance to adequate depth for boat/ski launching. That means that it is very difficult to get a cabin trailer sailer off its trailer without getting the brakes wet particularly when not at the top of the tide. A long warp will also be required to recover such a boat and trailer without getting salt water on the car. This is a very popular launching site, which in high season can become very busy. It is the recommended slipway for Jetskis and close to the designated Jetski area in Poole harbour.
Jetskiers can be a major hazard here while launching/recovering.

Other options would be Rockley Park or Cobbs Quay both Hamworthy and a bit further from the harbour entrance.

I have just heard from that most respected of sources, well Mrs M actually, that the Vulcan is not flying due to a leak in the fuel tank. Shame, it is one of those aircraft that can really move you (well on full noise I am sure that you can feel your internal organs being re-arranged)

Planning on being out there on Sunday, shame about the Vulcan, I remember them from my youth and was really looking forward to seeing one in the air.

From the Vulcan web site;
Andrew Edmondson, VTST Engineering Director said:
“Unfortunately, XH558 has developed a fuel leak from one of the large fuel tanks in her fuselage. This was discovered after the aircraft was refueled ready for this week’s flights. The leak is now being investigated to establish the cause and extent of the problem, and the necessary repair will need to be carried out before she will be able to fly again. We have every confidence that the problem is temporary, and we are working with Fire Proof Tanks of Portsmouth, the manufacturer of the fuel tank, with the aim of completing the repair as soon as practically possible”


Not flying at Dawlish, Bournemouth or Shoreham this weekend.

Vulcan cancelled due to fuel tank leak. Sea vixen taking it's place. Two f15 strike eagles doing a fly by on Thursday afternoon, don't have times and not sure if they flying past on any other days.

We will be going down to Bournemouth this afternoon so give us a wave if you see us (Ribeye 6.5m - WightStuff).

Particularly want to see the Red Arrows. The Website says 12:30-1:30 but post above says 1-2pm. Anyone know for sure... Don't want to arrive late!

The best display..........

Well air show was good, and it was good to meet up with David and Matt (hope the trip up the Wareham River went OK guys), but I am afraid that all the planned events were upstaged for me and the lads by one of those events that no amount of time or money could achieve. In all my years of diving the area around here I have never seen dolphins playing like the pod we came across in Christchurch Bay. Normally they are a grey shape in the water, the odd fin, or a curved back breaking surface, these were leaping right out of the water (just like on the telly ) and rolling off one another at the surface. For us it was the best display of the day, and got Mrs M very jealous (she had to go to work ).

The Friday programme seemed to follow the schedule that Boris posted at the start of this thread. However, the organisers may have changed things around as a result of the recent flooding?

About the dolphins, there seems to be local pod that's staying in the area. We were down at the end of June and then two weeks ago out of Kimmeridge and Swanage and we saw dolphins both days. They were putting on a fine show! I've been coming down to the area for 15 years plus and never seen them so often :-)
