Pete - wrong weekend on your link!

I've had a word with my personal forecaster (yes, I'm working with an ex-Met Office forecaster!) and he reckons that it's going to be a great weekend, with 30% possibility of light showers on Saturday. Moderate westerly breeze no more than 15kts, backing south-westerly 10kts or less on Sunday. It's a spring tide so making an easterly passage in the afternoon against the ebb may be a bit bumpy. Catch up with you for a beer or two over the weekend Ollie?

Red Funnel

Unfortunately I don't have the benefit of my own rib...yet.. to get across to Cowes. Bargain!, i thought when i saw the advert to get a discount travel & entry price on the Red Jet service! 10 entry and return crossing, cheaper than a normal return without the show.

Followed the links, filled in the form, put in card details, job done...or so i thought! Only it didnt go through but it didnt tell me this. Still no confirmation email this evenin so I rang there help line. The very helpful gentlemen told me its was now too late to buy the discount tickets online so there goes a reasonably priced day out!

Still gona go though, Ill just take the slow boat over and sit on deck with my camera taking pics of you lot making me very jealous! Lets hope for good weather!
