Nacho Nutters

Well done to Matt H and Trevor G for coming out today. Met up with Matt on the Lym slip as planned and we set out for a run. I had to go in and get fuel and he was sorting out some running issues. Have some pics of of him but unfortunately lost him later as I went over to Yarmouth. So entered the Wheatsheaf and not expecting anyone else I else confess I ordered a steak!!!

Then Trevor G arrived with his brother and neice - stalwarts all the way from Southampton. They of course had Nachos!

Conditions- Ok really apart from a bit cold and wet - very flat seas all along the island shore. Hope to see some more out next weekend

It was the Porterhouse in Westbourne for the Poole contingent ( Avocet, Oscarguitar, & Longjohn) very enjoyable drink & socialise and we remained mostly dry & warm!

Definitely missed you all - Hope we can re-convene next week. I had a quick run out to the Shingles - not nice out there at all - and the tide had not even started the full ebb. Am planning a trip to Poole in the near future - will try to link up if anyone is about.

Mmmm - the nachos were as good as ever.
In the end the run from Southampton to Yarmouth and back was pretty flat and uneventful. It just started a light drizzle as we arrived in Yarmouth at 12.00 but didn't get any worse all day.
Maybe next week for 2nds?

A pretty good day out all in all. just back home now and we got thunder and lightnng now!!

S sorry i could not spend more time with you.Love the Protector.. loooks really nice. never seen one close up but what a craft!!!. anyway today really was a shake down blast as needed a few adjustments here and there but now running superbly!put on 47 miles and 35 litres of fuel so happy with that and 33 knots flat out at the mo, so a good engine/hull mix..
Weather was pretty good for most of the day and mostly flat calm.. looked rough over the shingles/hurst tho and of course had to check them out then onwards to the needles and round the corner a bit.Big swells and prob gusting 50/60 ish poss. some great waves breaking across them, bit too wet too get my non waterproof camera out!
