Cowes Week Fireworks on friday 8th?
 
Firworks at 9.30 i think.

We should be taking a 8m revenger inboard with green tubes over.
Anyone know the best place to anchor, i remeber last time we went we ended up just pointing into the current and leaving it running in gear for a hour as it was chocka block!:D

Hi Simon
Yes am going over, launching at Lymington together with another Ribeye at about 1830.
Will be going over to see the Red Sparrows, who are displaying at 1930, subject weather.

We anchoured abeam the Royal Yacht Squadron, it was busy last year but the view was very good.

Both our boats have the usual(!) grey tubes on white hull, and my boat will have a flag with a pink cow on it! Hence the name ...

QUEENS HARBOUR MASTER PORTSMOUTH
LOCAL NOTICE TO MARINERS
No 20/08
COWES FIREWORK DISPLAY FRIDAY 8th AUGUST 2008 TEMPORARY 15 KT SPEED LIMIT
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN jointly by the Queens Harbour Master Portsmouth and the Harbour Master Southampton that a speed limit of 15 knots will be temporarily introduced in the Solent and Southampton Water to ensure safety of navigation for the COWES Firework Display on Friday 8th August 2008.
The 15 Knot speed limit will be in force between 2130 and 2300 on Friday 8th August 2008.
Mariners are advised that this measure has been introduced to reduce the risk of collision between the many hundreds of small craft which gather to view the fireworks display. In previous years collisions have occurred, particularly after the event which has resulted in serious personal injury to passengers and crew of small craft.
Mariners are reminded of the importance of displaying the correct navigation lights, maintaining a good lookout at all times in all directions and, proceeding at a speed consistent with safe navigation, particularly at the conclusion of the display as spectator craft get underway and return to their home ports.
