Who is out this weekend in The Solent?

With the weather being a bit pants lately, I'm sure a few of you will be out this weekend, as the weather forecast is actually looking pretty decent - AT LAST!!!

We'll be out and about around the Solent - Anything to get a bit more experience in our new Ribeye!

Just wondered who else we might see either out on the water, or in Cowes/Yarmouth harbour that we could give a wave to

Hi BrAinz
We should be out and about on Saturday - plan at the moment is launch late morning up the Hamble, and head over to Wooton Creek for a late lunch at the Sloop - high tide is around 14.30 so there's no point in us getting there too early or we'll be walking the boat in.
Anyone want to join us for lunch or meet up for a mini-run?
Trevor (+ Pam and three 10/11 year olds for Saturday)

Hi
We are planning to launch at about 1pm from Hythe - haven't worked out what we are doing yet - might take the ringo depending on how windy it is.
It will be good to get out on the water given the recent weather.
cheers
Neil

Our plan for today was to go round the Island, anti-clockwise, launching from Cowes around 10:30ish.

But.. That damn wind still seems to be strong, so might decide against doing the full trip depending on the sea conditions.

Just got back from going round the Island. Past a couple of Ribs just past Shanklin going towards Ventor, then another just past Whitecliff Bay.

Was pretty choppy from The Needles to St. Catherines, but still expeted to see a few more people out today.
