Wreck

Ribald,

Thanks for the info. Is that wreck at N50 39.71 W1 35.633 just south of Goose Rock ?

Any idea what boat it was ?

Regards Nick R.

I think it's called the Varvarssi. Went down in 1947. Been catching boats ever since.

I saw a crazy folk boat sailor hit the goose rock at the needles during the round the island race one year. He smacked into it at some ridiculous speed, rose a foot or 2 out of the water then drifted off and carried on around the island!

He seemed to be completely oblivious to the fact that he could have half ripped his keel off! nutter.

Don't think i'll be able to make this RIBing extravaganza on the 8th. Sounds like a bloody good laugh though. I'll keep a eye on this forum to see your plans though. Maybe come and blag some of Hightower's BBQ food! haha!

Anyway, good luck to all.

Tim

Hi all,

Things might sem to have gone quiet on this thread but I can assure you its just a case of waiting for the day now and hopefully the weather!!!!

I visited Culver Cliffs and the cafe the other day and was most impressed. It was good weather and just like being abroad.

I went to Sandown the next day and it it was blowing a hooly. Nasty big waves.

Regards Nick R.

I think he means Whitecliff Bay which is tucked under the north side of the big headland (Culver Down) to the north of Sandown Bay. Been there a couple of times at anchor but never ashore.

I'm sure it is real - don't think the RNLI would fake it do you . I think "young" Mr Robson knows the chap paddling whose name is Seb.

I do also know Seb. I thought it looked like him but didn't want to say anything! He's got a nice rib too behind which he towed me wakeboarding at 45knotts...scary!

Alternative

Nemo

Your right about the weather it still hasn't eased up yet. The sun is out now but there is always a stiff breeze around. I must admit I'm quite worried about being able to do this trip if the wind doesn't die down. I'm just hoping and praying that it does as I don't have a clue what we will do if its a lumpy day.

I just seem to have spent too many weekends now bouncing around at slow speeds in the Solent and surrounding area. Good weather is forecast for the not too distant future, but its no winds we need.

Shall we make a cut off date to cancel the tour if the winds don't die down or does anyone have an idea what to do in case of bad weather. We could all go over to the Folly Inn and get sloshed, but then we've got to get back, and its illegal and silly to drink and drive anyway.

The latest date for me to make a decision and get it put on the internet would be Thursday night 5th August.

I did have one excellent day last Saturday 17th July where I could go flat out even out by Nab Tower. Thats the weather I'm hoping for, and if I get it again I shall be heading waaaaayyyy out to sea !!!!!

Paintballing?

Andy, mmm paintballing???? is that what they call subliminal advertising???

Anyway, just a quick note to say that my intentions of coming south for this one seem to have been scuppered. I have to be in Nefyn on the 7th so the chance of getting down for the 8th are almost non existant.

I'll keep checking the forums to see if the sub 5m class get it together again. Have a great trip and dont forget to post the pics afterwards!!

Peter
