Hi cgf10, Swanage looks like an idea place to go.
As the kids are growing up fast and the whole family is taking an interest in ribbing, Wareham river, Brownsea and Arne look ideal for a family day out.
We have launched from Lymington before and we did a trip from Poole to Yarmouth a few weeks ago, I also went on the Nacho Run in Jan where we went to the Wheatsheaf.
HI Pete, unfortunately we have every weekend booked up now until middle of August so won’t be able to make the RNLI fun day
but it looks like Swanage will be our next trip (weather permitting).
Is there any wind / tide conditions to look out for when planning this trip as I’ve seen it quite lumpy round that way when across to Bournemouth and IOW was almost flat?
