I was always under impression the green/red/white lights on the back of your boat, Jimbo, are for navigational purposes! Clearly i was wrong, they are funky disco lights!

This is true - there is also a plan afoot to fit neons to my rib...

Benc - Definitely bring the disco ball, I'll get a spotlight...

Ben, you are not putting my lasers on your RIB, do you really want to confuse everything with GREEN laser beams

To a degree... if its a bit of drizzle... then we'll probably still do it. But hail or strong winds I suggest we don't.

We haven't set one yet - but I'm thinking the Calshot Spit bouy or maybe cowes... any other suggestions?

BBC are forecasting, for southampton, 12 mph winds with rain/sun. Pretty much covering all bases!

Right, I have spoken with Jimbo, and the suggested plan is...( I don't have his way with words, so it will be short and sweet(ish))

1645 Jimbo/Andy launching at camber
1730 Pompey/Southamptoners Rendezvous at Rising Sun, Warsash
1800 Leave from rising sun, Warsash, heading towards Lymington
1830-1845 Rendezvous with others just off Lymington

Then head towards the needles for a play, and then back to yarmouth for some dinner.

Hopefully the weather will give us a break for the cruise.

Does everyone coming have navigation lights?
