A group of us are hoping to go from Castletown portland across weymouth bay to Lulworth cove, soon weather permitting, there will be small ribs (4m) and sibs. Is this a straightforward trip, any hazards i need to be aware of??

Hard to believe that thread's 5 year old already!

I was there last year, did Alderney-Poole-Weymouth-Lulworth-Bournemouth- Poole Saturday then Poole-Yarmouth-Cowes-back to Alderney Sunday, expensive weekend!

Portland to Lulworth is completely straightforward with no dangers, you don't even need to worry about hi-speed cats out of Weymouth at the mo either.
It's only 7 miles so 20 minutes at 20 knots - easy
