Solent - Monday 25 February 2008

Next cruise for me in the Solent will be on Monday 25th February 2008 with Tuesday 26th February as the fallback date.

All subject to minimum rain and wind below Force 5. All welcome for a scoot around to dry out those winter blues and to make sure all systems are working for the coming spring.

Lunch at Yarmouth with maybe a blast down to the Needles if its not suicidal.

Just realised I'm off work that day, as my lads have an inset day at school and I'm home looking after them.

Weather dependant the three of us will be out.

The Lightship was due to be moved a couple of weeks ago - it's going to Marchwood for a refurb. They had to delay as the boat that is currently at marchwood overstayed it's welcome, due to overrunning works.

I think she's going this week sometime?

That'll save us some money on mooring up fees

If I come down can we go to Ventnor for a paddle

James,

Chris nice one,

My new part was posted last thursday so should be here soon. Then the boat is ready to go.

If anyone would like to take over the planning I would appreciate that as I am away from 16 Feb to 23 Feb, arriving back late that night. Will check the weather on the Sunday and RIBNET for any final details.

Nick.
