Solent - Sat 22nd or Sun 23rd - anyone out?

The weather's looking good this weekend (as long as it's not foggy) - anyone planning to be out and about in the Solent?
Maybe a calmer Nacho run to Yarmouth?

OK - new plan - Saturday 22nd - Launching SDS about 11am for a run to Yarmouth. Meeting a Targa (Joker) off Calshot about 11.30.
Should get to Yarmouth about midday.
Anyone else wanting to meet up - we'll be on VHF72.

We've already done our month's fuel allowance, but I reckon I could find 30 quid to ensure we can get to Yarmouth and back. (Just don't tell Sarah)

I did 65L which I dont think was too bad.

I fancy heading out this weekend (Engine testing after a full service on Wednesday!) but not sure where to go! Ohh the dilemma!

As always 2 real choices... Turn left, or turn right.
3rd choice - going straight on from Southampton Water gives a fairly short trip

Only jealous as the boat's 100 miles away from the sea at present on the drive

Ohh no not this weekend!
The Solent is a 3/4 hr drive for me, will be closer to home if I head out Sunday.

Won't be able to make tomorrow as we're driving to Bristol to meet some Dobermann puppies with a view to buy. Unfortunately we lost our dear little JR called Eddie earlier this week - 16 1/2 yrs old. Have always had JRs and German Shepherds over the last 40+ yrs and we have decided on a change - crossover between terriers and big black and brown German dogs.

Hope you all have a great day out guys. Catch up soon.

Sorry to hear about Eddie, Steve. Good luck with the puppy viewing....remember they are different when they grow up....we didn't fully appreciate how large & strong our Airedale - Flora would get

Ahh yes I see what you mean!

There is but itís not what I use, usually launch at either at the club at Holland Haven across the beach or the Town Hard at Brightlingsea.

Sad times, but a good age for a Jack. Did Eddie have Sea Legs?

Taken out Patterdaleís out a few times, our bitch (tan) loves the water. Sometimes a little to much and is rather eager to jump in.

I've certainly used the slipway at Titchmarsh many times with Sea Cadets to launch/recover various RIB's, when we used to have a training centre there. Relatively narrow at the top, and you need to be on at least half tide, but I've used it for RIB's up to 7m quite happily.
