The Solent looks fairly flat, sun's shining through some hazy high cloud which will burn off later, gentle NW wind and I feel a good day ahead.

Have a good day you lot, this has spurred me on to give my boat the tlc she deserves, I'm pulling engine, drive, shield and back plate out and giving it a good clean, missing today is my penance for neglecting my boat, the weather looks real good for today

Thank you everyone, it was a really enjoyable day. Thank you Especially to Giddyup who allowed me to join him today, never thought I would ever go 70mph on the water!

I'm already editing my 6GB of footage into one video
