Sunday 19th blast

Thinking of taking advantage of the forecast good weather and conditions for Sunday with a blast from Swanwick over to the IOW, Yarmouth or Cowes, maybe down to the Folly Inn, if anyoneís keen?

Great minds think alike. We're launching from Hamble Point tomorrow and heading over to IOW for lunch. The weather forecast is looking excellent if a little cold, but we can dress for that

As you're coming down from Swanwick perhaps we can meet up off Hamble Point. We normally launch at about 11.00

Can'd do tomorrow, but now I've sorted - or will have by end of day - the trailer lights, was thinking of a run from Hamble Point to Needles & Yarmouth fro lunch next Sunday - 26th.

Hi LT, we'll definitely be up for that next week, weather permitting. Glad you've got you're trailer lighting sorted. Personally, I think I would have just replaced the whole kit and caboodle.

Not so simple on a modern trailer where there are running lights built in to it! the lighting board was fine - it was the trailer lights to lighting board 13 pin connector wiring which had gone pete tong All sorted after a chilly morning of rewiring with new cable

Have a good run tomorrow, hope to catch up next Sun.

I'll be out in Black Adder - probably leaving SDS about 11.
Maybe drop me a text when you decide where you're heading?

Well, that was a great day out on the water. These high pressure days in winter really do provide excellent boating conditions, and bright sunshine all day just tops everything off nicely. This was our third day out on the water this year - I really don't understand why some folks 'winterise' their boats from October to March.

Thanks to Trevor and Mike for giving us a guided tour of mooring spots in Cowes before enjoying a very good pub lunch in West Cowes.

Sorry I couldn't make it in the end, especially as the author of the thread!! A bout of 'man flu' knocked me for six over the weekend. I will definitely be out for the next one.

Glad you chaps had a good day.

Saturday's weather forecast is looking a lot better than Sunday's so we'll more than likely be going out then.

I was just looking at that myself actually, 0.3 - 0.5m wave height and winds no greater than 8 knts. Perfect.

I've been away with work last two nights so will need to get a day pass from the 'boss', if she's happy to let me go play for a day I'll be up for it.

Yep it was pretty bad. Tuesday I was at work hosting a client meeting and could barely speak. Seems much better now though. I'm thinking of going out this Saturday for a run over to Cowes, maybe down to the Folly.

So far I've only used the short stay at East Cowes Marina, so I would also be keen to visit some others and check them out. Always a little intimidating without 'local' knowledge (for a chap that grew up in the area!!)

Town Quay by the Red jet terminal in West Cowes is handy for looking round the town and should be fairly quiet at this time of year.

All booked in, I’ll be leaving Swanwick Marina early Saturday morning. Planning to take a cruise up the Beaulieu towards Bucklers Hard for some nice GoPro or even drone footage, (subject to permissions) then head across to Cowes for lunch at The Folly, then stop in town on the way back to check out some of the alternative short stay moorings.

Will have the VHF on, callsign Roody Van Doody for anyone wanting to join me.
