Many in ASC have fine boats.
However do you have a beer named after your Yacht   :) ?

Just a few minor changes.

With a week to go, we had 2 boats, Fizzgig Sea and  Holly, both fully crewed and everything looked good. Forecast looked bit iffy but plenty of time for that to change. But it did not.

Pete, skipper of FG, rang round his crew on Thu and all agreed to scratch. Ian did the same on Fri morning and Sea Holly's crew decided the same.

Ian and Jean were committed to go Sea Holly to meet a contractor on Sat morning. We went down on Friday afternoon, did a few jobs followed by enjoyable evening meal in Arty's, next door to POG in Gosport. We were later awoken in the small hours of Sat by lashing rain. Sat morning was horrible and even walking around the boat was a challenge. The contractor shyed off and we went home early afternoon. No small boats were moving in the harbour - and I dont blame them.

Fizzgig and crew were able to rearrange the cruise for this coming weekend. The forecast looks much better.

Hi all,

Following some suggestions from Ashdown SC, we have made a couple of relatively minor changes to the Skippers' Aide Memoire. Attached is Version 1h.

As always, any comments or suggestions are welcome.

Thanks Paul,

Interesting report. I like reading mini-reports for cruises that I don't managed to do. Glad to hear that the sun did appear.

Did anyone get a pic of Two of Diamonds underway? I would like to replace the one on the website

In the end, 15 hardy souls except soft Phil Browne attended the sunshine cruise as planned. All 3 boats set off Saturday morning in light winds. As we passed Cowes we came across Two of Diamonds which is a club boat but which was not on the cruise. We had a close-quarters chat with them as they crossed our path on their way into Cowes. Not much wind, but some of us did manage a sail or motor sail for some of the way to Yarmouth.

All 3 boats arrived Yarmouth Saturday pm, mooring together on the walk-ashore finger pontoons. We went to the Royal Solent YC, where they provided us with a table and served what was generally agreed as a fine meal. A good place to go again.

Sunday morning saw a still sea and no wind, yet the forecast was for a 5-6. Within an hour of setting off, the wind did indeed pick up but from the East, not the forecast South. Red Cloud and Katy 1 had 20 knots on the nose for the return to Gosport, but Libra II had a nice sail under genoa alone for their beam reach up S'ton water. About midday the light rain turned to heavy rain and the wind increased, so it was in the end a relief to be safely moored up again.

It was good to get out on the water, and the promised sunshine did indeed appear although fleetingly.
