10Kt speed limit

Better tell Suzuki Pete that. And the distance off rules. I think he may have been lucky on the St Paddys day bash. (apart from the prop )

Yes and we even have one amongst us seems he has turned to the dark side. Pulled me for an out of date VHF licence 25 miles off shore! shares the same first name as me.

Hi Tim
i thought you were going to do a vhf course!
you should have a minimum of a handheld with you, do not rely on the mobile.
its only recomended you have vhf for the intermediate but i think it should be for the level 2 as its the course everyone does for ICC bit slack really of the RYA but education not legislation is the ethos.it would be interesting to see how many like you do not have vhf radio's with them. when they venture out
. Its a major part of what should be your safety kit and we have to teach about how to make a mayday in pb2 so if you are not doing a course at least buy a handheld for emergency use.
regards tim

Solent trip

Tim

I'm down on the Solent from Friday for a week. If you fancy some company can you PM me your mobile number. The weekend doesn't look to hot at the moment, but weather forecasts aren't 100 %.

If you see a small white RIB give me a wave.

Thanks Biggles, will do (nice to be in the company of another small RIB!).

I was indeed going to do the VHF course (even booked a local one, only to be told there weren't enough people doing it), but all the local ones seem to be either closed for the summer, or booked up. It kind of got put back with all the other things I had going on (not namly A-levels!). Its something I will do however in the next little while - it seems a VHF is invaluble when going on the sea.

However, I don't have a licence, so what do I do?!!?? I could buy a H/H VHF for my trip, but with no licence is it suicide actually using it (like to call the harbour master). I might just get one in case I get in real trouble and need to call for help.

Just a note! If you were planning a shopping trip to Gunwarfs, don't just turn up, I think they like you to book the day before or certainly in advance.

Also I have noticed that some smaller craft that slip from Camber or Gunwarf do hug the Eastern side of the channel, surly this is a no-no....

Suzuki drove very responsibly that day (apart from turning too quickly when he launched at Haslar/ground the prop)
