Just taken a look at Met Office forecast. Wind has veered to SW F5 but with LW at around 11.00 at least the tide will be going the same way and neap tide will help. Return trip will be easier - would want to be back before 3-4pm for comfort though.

We have found that if one hugs the Island shore, with the wind in the SW you do get a slight lee. This seems more apparent from Newtown onwards.

Just a thought.

Could bring a bottle of Vodka along or perhaps you would prefer some BP
on second thoughts one should not drink when on the water but a sip to keep warm is permitable.

RIBase
I see that the LAmpton ribsters are down for 10AM in Haslar. The tide this weekend is not on our side and to get there for 10, weather permitting, we will have to leave the ribs on the water on Saturday and leave LA before 8AM Sunday cos later very low water. Only the weather will prevent us coming
Hopefully see you guys Sunday morning

Steve, Phil, Tony we launch Saturday about 11 AM and weather permitting we head for the Owers to meet up with Mike C

Any suggestions for the best place to cross from the Calshot area to the island side. I hit it right on the nose last time I went across and after realised it might be better taking the long route clockwise round the North passage and Bramble bank to get easier conditions. Anyone know if this is the case ?

Still isn't going to be shorts weather though.

Mike I probably won't be able to leave until 0930 hrs as my son has his paper rounds to sort out. Probably launching on the low tide, should be fun.

Not bothered what time I come back. No rush in that department at all.

The final list:

Haslar (1000)
Tim M (2) – Cormorant 2 (Ribcraft 4.8)

Nasher (& Jimbo) (4) – Nashers Revenge (6m Ocean)
Hugh Jardon (4) – Viper (6.5 Osprey Vipermax)
Pete 7 (4) – Old Spice (Pac 22)
Steve Green (2)
Phil Chitty (2) (6m Osprey)
Andre (5/6) - Seahawk 4 (Parker 750RS)

Calshot (1100)
BenC (2+) –
Intrepid (7m Tornado)
Pressman (4) – Pressman (Carson 900)
Andy Moore (4) Ditherer (6m Avon)
AndyB007 (4)
CJL (?) – Northern Exposure (Ribtec 585)
RJH (4),
Ian McConnel (?),
Peter J (3), Eigth Child (5m RIBx)
Lostyboy (4),
Ian M (?), (5m XS)
MikeCC (5.4 Searider)
Neal (4) - Dragon Khan (5m Tornado)

Yarmouth (1300)
nos4r2 (2)
Slimtim (1) – Hotshot (5m Shakespeare)
Biggles (1) –
Zerstörer (Ribtec 585)

Looks like its going to be a bit choppy so dry-suites and helmets might be advisable for added comfort. As Biggles said 77 is good for coms. Also If anyone wants to make it known that they won’t be coming on the day they might like to txt me on 07717 827393. Same again if you are going to be a bit late, then we can wait for you rather than leaving you behind. Yarmouth harbour master and the Kings head have been contacted and are aware of our numbers so we should be well catered for.

As usual this is a casual cruise; skippers are responsible for their boats and the people on them – RIBnet nor I can be held responsible for anything that happens. Obviously we will all keep a good look out for each other, and it should be a great day out.
Biggles, if you would like to orgnasie this “line-up” that would be great

Tim,

With regards the line up. Once we all meet in the middle of the Solent. I will definately be there. Then we can do the line up. I don't have a problem with controlling it.

Lets aim for 10 meters between each RIB (22 RIBs equals 220 meters, I think)off Gurnard Ledge. I will base myself on the South side. maybe with Pete7 in the middle and Nasher on the Northern side. that will make a yellow RIB at each end with the Thunderbox in the middle.

Thanks - makes sense to me.

I meant from a wind against tide viewpoint - the tide will start coming back the other way by 3-4pm, so might be a bit more lively!

Glad to hear you're all still on for tomorrow. Only just got back from working in Hamburg today so would've missed it!

I will hopefully still be out. Would be up for taking photos of the line up if it happens, so may try and come up to gurnard first.

If people want me to get photos of them blasting about, then zoom past me when I have my camera out! I'm planning on sitting off the needles while everyone plays around to try and get some shots.

Sorry all been keeping an eye on the met sites and I think it will be too much for the kids 4/5 OK 5/6 and rain not for them. If they had dry suits I would have been a little more relaxed. We were all looking forward to the trip but time to pull out . Hope you all enjoy the day. Take care and hope to see you out there before the end of the season.

Could I suggest that if people are late that they arrange an alternative rendezvous with you, rather than having a load of boats and people hanging around?

I know that it seems nice to wait for people, but often it turns out that it inconveniences far more people than it helps!

Just a thought.

Tim,

We will be later than planned and not likely to meet the Calshot groupat 11.00. Please don't wait for us - we will just go to Yarmouth.

If conditions are too poor then we'll skip it althogether.

Mike

Is the plan still to call in to Cowes for refreshments?

Or have I missed something?


I'll be launching at the Ferry Inn, Hayling Island at @09:30 then coming down to the harbour.

The smaller Nashers have decided they are wearing their snorkling masks if its raining, so with Drysuits and Wooly hats, Nashers Revenge will look like it has a couple of small aliens on board.

Should be picking up Ollyit and Jimbo somewhere along the way.

Nasher
