Yep....

We'll be out. Coming out of Langston Harbour

May not catch the start (well maybe the last ones) but will stooge around the Eastern Solent and the Forts and perhaps down to Sandown Bay or St Cats to watch them coming back. Camcorder at the ready.

Velsheda is staring at about 0720 so should be back about lunchtime.

The winds look light so the finish may be at Bembridge Ledge.

Call on 16 if you're about or PM for mobile no.

Planning to be out Bembridge way mid morning / lunch time to see the leaders.
BTW the Solent coastguard are not keen on Channel 16 being used for ship to ship calls. How about we keep a listening watch on channel 71 with call sign Ribnet group?

Look forward to meeting up with a few Ribnetter on Saturday.

Out of the Blue.

Can anyone remember what the drying times are for Bembridge harbour, fancy going there for lunch on Sat, and do not want to do Stuart (have to get the bus home) by staying to long as the sand bar appears.

Pete,

LW Portsmouth is about 1100 so don't think you'll get in there much after 0930 or out much before 1230.

Or, alternativly, in after 1230

Revise that - In by 1030 out after 1430 LW @ Bembridge = 1230

Hi All

My first posting, as at last I have procured a RIB, HURRAY! Thinking of head over to watch some of the round the island racing, have not been as far as the east side of the Isle of Wight (yet) as we are new to this RIBing lark. Is anyone heading out to watch the racing from Poole and would not mind some novice RIBsters as company ?

Thanks
