You won't believe this but I have been working.

Ribnet not at the top of my time wasting at the mo, however I will be back.

Just to confirm I shall be in sunny Cobnor, camping with the sailing club that weekend. If any one passes a load of Optimists sinking between Itchenor and East Head, please let me know because I am ment to be looking after them.

Er…. With all the drying sand it says there is on my chart..... can we actually get close to the beach at low tide? Presumbaby yes cos you did it last year. Is there a secret route in?

Mike C
Mike , Paul will post a diagram soon of the secret way to Priory Bay. There is a significant sand-bar which is worth avoiding.

Hiya Phil!!! That will be great!!! In your book, good weather is anything up to a hurricane so we'll probably see ye on 7th!!! Be nice to meet little Olly, the newest windsurfer on the south coast!!! -(Will write up on the Alderney thread btw)

Excellent Tim & Ju & co. Just let us know if any of the gang are stranded & we can nip over to the Camber for them.

Sir Hal Markaday, we shall send you an update by text ! If ye get blown off course, ye know where to go & hope Natasha's sailing is going well.

Will do an update post soon to save you all trawling back through the thread,

Folks the paras are in town this weekend, so in addition to locking up your daughters you might want to avoid Portsmouth on the 7th as they are parading and parachuting into Southsea. Camber dock for launching is probably best avoided as parking and traffic could be heavy.

Thanks for the warning Pete, I was planning on using Northney for this one so should not be an issue.

When I get back from my current trip I must make some more firm arrangements on time etc with the 'new Girl'

Nasher.

Thanks Nasher - I'm assuming I'm the new girl!

You will be pleased to know that we have successfully launched and retrieved the boat at Blue Horizon - which apparently do it there, you can do it anywhere!

I find the best way is to aim for the centre of the beach at WOT approx 1/2 mile off and then skip across the sand bank and then arrive cool as a cucumber just like James Bond.

Obviously you are then captive to Kathleen's Pimms until the next high tide.

It also means those of you that keep your boat in the water 365 days a year clean any shell life off free gratis.

Smoke Free

Given the fact that it will be exactly 7 days after the governments smoking ban I expect Priory Bay to be a leading example of UK healthy living.

Surely 7 days in long enough for UK Ltd to stop smoking !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tides

Not sure if this got answered whether the tide times quoted were BST or GMT. I've checked Reeds 2007, according to them, the tides for Bembridge are +20 mins on Dover so basically the same as Portsmouth. Looking at the times, these look like they are BST ( i.e. Real time) although they differ slightly from both Dover and Portsmouth but it isn't an exact science anyway.
