Horrid! Thought we were going to call a mayday with a suspected broken ankle in the Humber mid crossing!

It was Ajstars brother, bit worrying initially but he transferred to Ian M's RIB and had a better ride in that for the rest of the passage. On arrival at Lymington he seemed a lot better. Got to take your hat off to the guys in the Humber and Ribeye they did bloody well in the conditions

Conditions were horrible, forecast was for 0.7m seas this morning, they were more like 2m. Wind started off SW about f2-f3 but veered to NW and increased f4-f5 with higher gusts. Seas were fairly confused so we took another pounding, probably worse than Saturday

Didn't see the IOW until we were about 3 miles from it. What a glorious sight after a 4 1/2 hour passage.

Think its fair to say we ache all over, body took a beating, clothes wet through.

As an end of season cruise it was more like a challenge but we've done it, we had a lovely night in the La Pizza restaurant with a great bunch of like minded RIbbers.

Well done to everyone, let's hope next years end of season cruise is on a mill pond !

Glad you all made it back more or less OK, despite the conditions, well done to you all.

Were the boats in better conditions than the crews at the end?

looking forward to seeing any vids that survived.

Well done one and all. All weekend I've been looking at forecasts and thinking about you lot. Ribs really are the 4x4's of the sea.

Hope the ankle is OK, and no lasting damage.

The casualty was delivered back in Lymington by Ian and myself. After managing to roll himself on to the pontoon he managed a couple of tentative steps then hobble off under his own steam. He seemed to be in reasonable spirt when I last spoke to him and thought that the ankle was just badly sprained.

Fingers crossed that he makes a speedy recovery.

Sh*t it was awful today! just no let up for 4.5 hours I have even got a blister on the hand that was clenched to the wheel Saturday was almost full a challenge today was just an in durance mission no fun at all!
My poor crew got such a hammering don't think I will be able to sit down for a week! just pooped.
Blasting down the Solent flat out on a flat see was a welcome end to a cr*p day on the water.
Would I do it again well yes but not in those conditions

Yep, a confused sea. I am sure it will not look too bad on the Gopro, but it did give us and the boats quite work out. I must admit I thought a number of times, "OK had enough now", a mite unrelenting - and then through the mist the IoW gradually came into view. Magic.
I found that as I got tired, I was hearing more and more horrible noises, that must be the batteries come loose, I am sure that clang was the anchor going through the locker, what was THAT bang.
Of course, back home and all is as it should be.
Hopefully videos to follow..........

If it's any consolation - it wasn't much better on Blue Ray - the longer hull just meant we slammed harder in those beam seas.

... And Hightower won't be able to stand up for a week having caught his shins on the entrance to the cabin when we slammed down one time.

My anchor locker lid flew off at one point, guess it was the anchor taking off on one bad wave and just punching it out managed to fix it later on in the day

The Eldorado had the more amazing beer collection

Thanks to Trevor for shepherding us on the way back! my crew there really suffering and I just had to go slow, old men and bad back + those seas don't mix!

Glad you all had a great time, was envious reading about yesterdays crossing but was quite happy to be watching the Touring Cars today after reading one or two of these posts, must be very rewarding never the less.
