    Default Welcome home

    What a good weekend.
    Thanks to all those who made the trip. Good to see so many in St Vaast.

    Glad headbangerEdward is ok - we were worried when we heard the CG calling.

    The IoW was there a few mins ago but has retreated into the cloud. Never mind - I'm sure I'll find Bembridge!
    Hope to see your pics and stories here.
    We should get together again befoe next year.
    Thanks for being such a good crowd - a pleasure to organise!!! (or not).

    Nick will no doubt tell us the stats of who has done the trips. By my reckoning he, Tom (Amaya), Nigel and I have taken a boat each year and Jane K has been to them all. Apols if I have missed anyone but Nick will let us know.

    Take care everyone.

    Nigel

    I hardly heard you leave at 04:32.5 on Sunday morning!

    What finaly woke me though was the boat that had its engines running just before 06:00 for 15 - 20 mins! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Why? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    you heard that one too eh - I was wondering the same thing!

    we final got going a touch later than planned, breakfast was a cup of tea and for some reason neither of us was too worried about lunch either................ [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]


    continuing with the mad idea of quickly fishing the banks between Guernsey and Alderney we found conditions fairly snotty for most of the day but improved nicely in time for the return. Although it does get dark pretty early now doesn't it!

    this was what we went for - but was the only one to show



    not enough to feed 59 but will make a nice dinner some time soon............

    wonderfull evening - great organisation and friendly people. Dave would like to thank those who made him feel so welcome too.

    Yes thanks for organising it. We were going to leave at 08.00 but so much noise we went early as sleep was impossible.

    Good sail back until slow going in the Solent resulted us hoisting the Iron sail.

    All my crew would want to do it again next year! Much nicer adding the St Vaast Friday to the weekend.

    Many thanks for a great weekend, really nice to meet old and new faces.

    Special thanks to my skipper Oen, for being such a good host and all the rest of the crew.
    Great idea to have a get together during the winter, good excuse for some hot toddies....


    anyway see you all soon and thanks
