You should also have a nice sunny Sunday, JC. But it will be breezy - with a wind up the jacksy pushing you all the way back to Blighty's fair shore.

(And for those who care why that is, later next week there's a very strong low that is forming to the west. By Sunday it should be south of Iceland. It's going to be squeezing the Azores High quite hard by then and the westerlies spinning out of it anti-clockwise should reach the Scillies about the time we zoom off home.....possibly......)

We need to make some slight changes to the Scillies trip this weekend.
I will not now be taking Cyanide. Instead, Alan Winnett with Blue Ice, will start the cruise off from Plymouth.
To this end I need to hear from both Vernon and Andy M. that you can be at the circular fort in the middle of Plymouth breakwater at 09.00. This is instead of running out to the Eddystone, which is no longer needed as part of the route.
Vernon/Andy will you please confirm this is OK?
Other meeting and pickup details remain the same.
ie Mike and Di at St. Mawes at 11.00
Jason at the Helford bouy at 11.15
Graham and Robert at Wolf Rock at 13.00

APOLOGIES

I would like to apologise to all inolved for missing this trip.

I had some car trouble, which just happened to occur at a Mobile Phone dead spot. The problem was easily resolved once I had assistane, but this made it impossible for us to make the departure time.

Please post information on how the trip went.

I look forward to the next trip - hopefully hassle free!

Well, you missed a good trip, Graeme.

Thanks to Brian for organising it, thanks to Andy and Bryan for giving both Di and me a seat aboard aswell as letting us play with the steering wheels - the overfalls at the Lizard on the way back were really good fun.

And good to meet you, Jason, Robert and Charity. Those two little boats of yours look really well set up to me.

As the group,s Happy Snapper I'll get some pics posted soon as I get them developed. 'Fraid I'm still with yesterday's technology on the D&P front but the moment has now come to go digital. May I have the details of your camera and underwater housing again, Brian? It sounds the biz.

Cheers all...

The camera is a standard Canon Powershot A40. The secret is to get the Canon WP-DC200s Waterproof Case with it and a large capacity memory card. You can then operate ALL, and I mean ALL controls from outside the housing including playback, delete, auto to manual change, flash on/off etc etc.
On the Hebrides trip I charged the batteries and put the canmera in the housing at home, went for 10 days on the trip, took nearly 200 photos (replaying them each evening) and only opened the housing again when I got back home.
The housing offers not only waterproofing to a claimed 100 ft depth but more importantly for us ribsters is a good deal of shockproofing as well.
I have to say I am very chuffed with it so far.

Thanks for that, Brian. What did you pay for each of the bits?

Oh, groan...struggles to remember.....I think.....
the camera was about 350
the housing between 125 and 150
the card (128mb) around 50
I think your best bet is to surf the various shopping sites. I am sure you will find the components cheaper.
I went to a good, quality retailer who took time and effort to locate the right bits for me and to whom I don't mind paying top dollar.
On a medium quality setting (see ribnet gallery on the Hebrides trip for quality of image reproduction), the above size of card gives you about 800 photos, capacity-wise. Enough for your average holiday/trip I would have thought.

A thoroughly enjoyable trip, including the company!!

For me it was the most demanding cruise I have undertaken in my small Rib. It is nice to be able to build your confidence up in the company of fellow Ribsters.

As Mike said, the overfalls around the Lizard on the return Journey were very interesting.

Mike, I would be most grateful if you could get a double set of your Photos and send me the copies. I will send a cheque. Please let me know if this is OK with you and the amount to send.

Thanks again to all participants for a great weekend.
