Ian,

Had a lovely day to day. Got a bit of a suntan even. Just seemed to be following this bunch of guys from watering hole to watering hole.

Can't make Wednesday due to parents visiting at short notice but will definately be at Warsash from 1100 hrs on Thursday for a good blast.

Regards Nick.

Below are a couple of photos outside Portsmouth showing how calm it was today.

If you're launching from Warsash - have a look to the right as you go past the the harbour masters office, my boat is in the yard there out of the water

I look at the weather out of the window... and can nearly hear the water lappign against the shore from where I work - damn day jobs!

Ben,

Will Do.

Don't worry you'll get your chance soon enough. Plenty more nice days to pick during the summer.

Sorry biggles we missed each other again, great weather.

Spent 9 hours on the water & went through £75 in fuel. Had a hearty lunch at the Folly and raced a very large cabin rib with cuddy, I lost miserably must of been the twin 275's on the back. may be one day

Saw the boat Ben. Needs a good run. I think you've been ignoring her whilst you've been racing around on the Zapcat.

A photo taken on todays outing. Although we nearly cancelled today because it was cold and raining at home. When we got out to sea the day vastly improved. Thanks to Hightower for the live weather feed.

The breeze picked up a little in the early evening which was good as a RIB and smooth seas can get boring unless your on a long journey.

Forgot to say but whilst having lunch at the Lightship saw 'Evolution' , Tim M's boat, cruising back from Haslar Creek. Wasn't too sure who was on the boat but gave a wave anyway.

Thats a nice clean looking boat. Bet its very fast.

It woz me

Teaching a PB2 Today and Tomorrow. Evolution is a really tidy boat, very well looked after. She tops out at about 38kts - could do with a nice 200hp/225hp on the back, then she'd really go!

Thought it was you. Trouble is you keep changing your hair style so I was confused.

Looked like I got the weather forcast spot on mate?

I'll miss peering out the window at work and looking over the harbour when I change jobs next month

Only trouble with today was "I wasn't with you" !!!!
