Well I made it out. Left home and drove the 30 seconds to the slip in drizzle. Popped the rib in. Rain stopped and the sun even shone for about 2 minutes.

Had a good hour of fun, then the heavens opened and i mean opened. It poured and poured. I just popped my hood up and carried on. It was fine with the rain behind me, but heading into was slightly painful on the face.

Recovered when the visbility started to drop quite quickly and the mist rolled in. Still i wasnt the only nutter, two more ribs were out, a speed boat and a jet skier.

Monsoon season

Don't know about you chaps but I never known weather like this.
I've been keeping an eye on the UK weather 10 day forecast as I've signed up for 8 days marshalling in the Solent starting on the 17th.
There was a pretty good forecast this morning, with loads of sunshine, so I left it on the screen all day to cheer me up. At about 5 pm, I refreshed the page and to my horror the sunshine predictions had all been replaced with clouds and showers. I tried to reload the previous page but alas, it was in vain. I guess it's more of the same...

At Port Solent now, saw a few RIBS heading out, there is an exclusion zone at about 5.45pm within 100mtrs of the Gosport ferry due to the flame, may head down to get past before the nonsense begins and back into the Solent. Looks like weather is brightening up for a lovely evening cruise

We were out earlier, went for a trip down to Chichester Harbour, started raining though, so came back. Not sure which bit of the Solent you were looking at, but we seemed to be permanently under big black clouds

Still great to get out on the water though!!
