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

the online thing is good but note its non refundable and non transferable but thats not the end of the world.

Have to be local tomorrow as nephew is only 5 and brother in law now has a broken wrist so think hamble to ocean village for some lunch could be in order!
