It really was great day, 10 ribs completed the round the island cruise and I hope they all enjoyed it as much as I did.

I could feel the magnetic pull of Alderney as we rounded St Catherine's and I couldn't help thinking it's not that far away, is it?.....

Looks FAB, perhaps a Jurrasic Coast cruise in the summer with lunch on a beach ?

Yeah, a Jurrasic Coast cruise would be great, which beach for lunch?

Jurassic Coast

Chapmans pool can be nice if it is calm or some north in the wind direction, Lulworth Cove has pubs so that is always a consideration! I'm sure there are lots of other places as well.

Might also be worth a ride to Weymouth to see what is happening for the Olympics.

As it happens there is a BIBOA cruise to Weymouth this weekend coming up (31st March / 1st April). If the weather is as good as the weekend just gone we'll be heading slowly down the Jurassic Coast on Saturday - meandering into the various coves and coming back again on Sunday.
It's not too late to join BIBOA and come along! I'm sure the Crown in Weymouth (where most people are staying) will still have rooms available - although Rick and I will be sleeping in Blue Ray's cabin in the Marina!

I will have to place the IOW on my things to do list, lets hope you plan another next year it could be worth the long tow south

Trev,

I won't be able to make next weekend as I will be out of the country. Have a great time though.

Sorry about that - that's what happens when you let the kids drive - especially when they aren't paying for the fuel!
But now you come to mention it - I had actually factored in the usual unexpected stops when setting the planned speed at 22 kts. In ffact we got to Ventnor harbour entrance at about 1 minute past 12 - which wasn't bad considering we left Cowes 10 mins later than planned and stopped a bit to watch the helicopter's escapades.

Filled up today from full on Saturday having done Poole - Poole (round the island): 111 litres.

At approx 80M journey that's about 1.3 lpm. I'm happy with that!

Oh dear, looks like a RIB hit the Varvassi wreck off the Needles. Ii was a fairly low tide by then (0.75m at Portsmouth low), but I still would hae thought there would have been enough water to clear the boilers.
Obviously not though, so may be a lesson for any of us that way at low tides.
