I don't know how you manage it every year Trevor but this forecast is superb!

Just about to head off down to the port, nearly finished packing

Best of luck this weekend to all . Looking out over the Needles this morning it looks pretty calm - gentle breeze and a forecast to be great for thos returning on Sunday & better the following week for the staying on .

I wish I had blagged a seat now as I officially became single again last night so now have 'freedom' ....

Looking forward to the GO Pro footage (Alex - Trevor - no pressure to check batteries , turn them on etc ....)

Pete

Can't believe the weather is soo good after such rubbish all year, great timing lads!!!

Although we aren't coming, we are popping down to Poole, so may well catch up at Yarmouth-Needles to wave you off!

Have a great time!!! And really look forward to all the photos and videos.

Sorry to hear about being single again (unless, of course, it's the opposite). If you can get to the marina by 10.30, there's a seat on Grimalkin for you! We're leaving home at 10.00.

It was great to see you all at Yarmouth. Really didn't want to turn back at the Needles and wished we were going with you!!

Have a great time!

I will try and remember to tell Trev you have asked when I see them off.

From what I gathered last night they are planning to leave for Guernsey late this morning, but no idea what after that.

Back in Southampton now, had a great run back and as we felt a bit cheated by going home earlier than the rest we stopped at Ventnor for lunch and then completed the circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight

We all had a great trip, thank you so much, you are a great bunch

Video to follow later this week and it will be a Cracker
