Nice to see some of the Poole contingent heading out and coming back in. And some wonderful photos from Needles there NeilH!

I spent the day in the harbour and then a quick dash out to Swanage to make sure everything works fine, having lifted the engine and drive over the Autumn.

Looks like the Ribtec is running perfectly again, so will hopefully join in another weekend afloat in the coming months.

Well done Steve and Donna, both for the round trip from Derbyshire in a day, and for doing the Nacho run. You were looking good on the run from Yarmouth to The Needles, getting fully airborne a few times

Despite engine troubles and having to leave Tigga at Calshot I had a great day. Got a ride in Andre's Parker, GTB's Ballistic, and Whispers Osprey 6.5

The photos of MattH and AJ are awesome.

I feel bad now for not coming from Manchester. If I had known I could have traveled down in a convoy that would of helped persuade me. Perhaps this should be a point for future cruises.

I thought it was Derby? Hats off to them, I thought they did really well, we followed them back to calshot but they had already recovered by the time we had got back.

Had a quick chat on the slipway though and it was lovely to see a family having fun
