In the end we changed out plans and will head down to Yarmouth tomorrow evening, (leaving hamble around 4.30 / 5 ish)
Have a walk ashore berth booked and a B&B in Yarmouth. if you fancy meeting up i will buy you (Rodan) the first beer!( as long as its followed by another one!
half thinking about a blast around the island saturday morning before collecting the nephew for his first ribbing experience!
I set up the online thingy for Yarmouth walkashore reservations - very handy indeed as I can do it all from my desk with no-one knowing I'm not working !
If tomorrow goes as planned I may be in Yarmouth ( depends on kids who are fairly unreliable things)
I'm out Saturday - but will be looking for Dolphons round Poole - Swanage way
