We would be leaving from either Solent Breeze Caravan site of Wasash depending on tide.

Seeing as this thing is happening on Paddy's Day, wonder is there any space for a genuine Paddy? I'm in the final stages of purchasing a rib at the moment and plan to collect it on the morning of the 17th (already seatrialled). I did plan on going for a burn that morning anyway, so t'would be great if the first trip on me new rib was with you lot, before I head off on the long road back to the ferry in Wales!!

Rib is a Cobra HD 6.65m with a 150hp Yamaha HPDi donkey on the back. Plenty of spare seats, as it's just meself, so if anyone wants to come along and is prepared to put up with a paddy singing dodgy folk songs all the way across, then let me know)

(ps - plan to launch from Lymington, so if any of the other guys leaving from there could let me know what time they're planning to launch I'd appreciate it)

(pps - I have a box of Guinness t-shirts that I can bring across to mark the day - free, so first come, first served)

Fair Play to ye Blimp!!!

That's just fantastic news. BTW there will be a few other fairly genuine paddies around !!! And since Paddy's Day means a bit of a blast and an excuse to have a bit of extra nourishment then everyone's a Celt on the day! Look forward to the folksongs (and maybe a free t-shirt, XXL )

Will update the list in a while.

note: add in new names
Also Antoinette and Martin

That'll be because I don't advertise it much! It seemed like a really good idea at the time, but now it is just embarrassing and a phonetic nightmare
Just call me up as Ian M

I guess we are not going to say bye bye to Selsy Bill yet

Pls put us down as well

Seahawk IV - Andre & Wiesia

Perhaps Lynx , Sidney 1 and Galaxsea III may also want to have a last blast around Selsy Bill


PS: only if the conditions are good cos Wiesia likes a smooth ride and nothing like I had today

Mighty March Mustering

Appreciate that Richard!

We're into the timescale for detailed forecasts now and we'll post the latest/last round-up list this week.

Not (never!!!!) too late to join in!

Also we'll 'phone The Folly again with a more accurate estimate of numbers.

Hoping this lovely weather continues 'till Saturday!!!
