okay,

Thats still a few of us going. As Ian suggests Sunday looks better than Saturday. How flexible can we be. Does anyone have any idea what it will be like on Saturday with that level of wind, ie 15 mph coming from the South West and the tides we are expecting to meet, against Sundays forecast which is 10 MPH winds and coming from the North West. Sunday also looks like it might be drier as well.

I can make either day, but might be a bit under the weather Sunday morning. Also I might have a little trouble recovering the boat on Sunday as high tide is that bit later and Warsash and high tides are difficult.

I await a later forecast this evening and everyone elses thoughts that are attending.

Some other experience here would be appreciated.

I'll talk to the other half. We're at a party Saturday night, so will definitely be somewhat the worse for wear on Sunday, and don't know if we'll be up early enough to make it on time!
That said, Sunday is looking better, and would rather go in nicer weather.

Will update tonight also.
If we go Sunday, will probably launch from Warsash too, so we could help each other out with recovery Nick, as from past expereince, it's not the easiest of slips at near high tide.

We can do either. On Saturday the choppy bit will be the Noodles to Poole and back as the waves will be on the beam so Viv will get another soaking as she picks up all the kit washed out of Nos's submarine, still at least you know were he is from the trail of floatsum

Okay,

Have spoken to Nos4r2 on the telephone and he's pushing for Sunday to get better conditions.

Will 2000 hrs Friday night be okay to make a decision for one way or the other.

I would prefer smoother seas so as I can get some video footage.

With regards feeling the worse for wear we've got an extra hour in bed Sunday so that should take the edge off everything and if we're going to get smoother seas we could always RV half an hour later, because we'll make that up on the passage. If we go for the Sunday lets say meet at Cowes at 1100 hrs.

I've done this particular trip once or twice, and we will definately have an easier time of it with northerly winds. However, for the adrenaline junkies.................

We can manage Sunday if it's looking better, 2000 to make decision should be OK.

Nick, I'll PM you my mobile, as could still be in traffic on M25 and might not have internet the other end. So could you text me the decision?

Cheers

Neil

If everyone could let me know tonight if they intend to come, can you please let me know so I can print a list out and we can wait for anybody that might be a little late.

You can PM me you mobile numbers if you want and I'll phone before leaving any of the RV points.

Nick.

Where are you then?, mind you that said I was in the sea yesterday in Portsmouth harbour up to my shoulders, fully clothed for about half and hour and I was surprised how warm it was.

Just come in from work-As Biggles said, I'd prefer Sunday. Poole isn't very nice in a south-westerly.
I'll have trouble launching and retrieving at Baiter in a SW wind too-there'll be waves breaking over my trailer. The slip is very shallow and you have to launch with it pushed 30' out.

We can only make Saturday and will be out whatever. Will be out on the boat tonight and will check internet around midnight for the decision. The weather looks pretty good for both days bearing in mind the time of year, but remember it gets dark earlier on Sun. Nos4r2 you can use the slip at Cobbs Key marina which is completely sheltered.

No wind in Poole at the moment. Forecast for weekend:

24 hour forecast:
Wind Variable 3 becoming southwest 4 or 5.
Weather Occasional rain.
Visibility Moderate or good.
Sea State Slight to moderate.
Outlook for the following 24 hours:
Wind Southwest 4 or 5 becoming variable 3.
Weather Occasional rain.
Visibility Moderate or good.
Sea State Slight to moderate.

I will be out both days regardless so can fit in with any plan.

If the Poole Blast is delayed until Sunday, anyone still going out on Saturday who wants some company please get in touch.

To be honest I'd still rather do Sunday-Cobbs Quay is bloody expensive and a complete pain to get in and out of the carpark through the barrier.

Cobbs Tariff:-

Slipway
Use of slipway (self launch/recover):
includes car & trailer parking
Annual pass: £390
Daily: £40
Barrier pass: £10


Baiter is £8 inc harbour dues. Harbour dues are extra at Cobbs Quay.
