    Weather on Saturday, looking quite good, but Sunday is yuk. More wind & rain, unless the forecast changes again.

    I'll probably venture up the Frome on Saturday, return back to Poole Saturday evening, going to Wareham by car for the evening bash and kip in the Black Bear.

    Hope you bring your boat, Barry, never do anything if we listen to Met forecast.

    Steve, how much later is the tide at Wareham, than say, Poole Quay.

    All this at the risk of another barrage from our friend Learner[img]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I've just been on the Met site. They say sat will be dry some sunny periods and sunday will be dry but overcast with a slight risk of showers later in the afternoon early evening.
    So your at the bear, I'm at the bear and Forbsies at the bear. Who else is gonna stay at the bear? I'm ther from friday evening till sunday, early start on the local brew is called for!

    OK, to hell with it. Unbolt it and we'll use it as an anchor!

    Good news.

    Shouldn't be too bad in a F4 northerley.

    Could you bring your 176C? I am just about to buy one so a demo would be good.

    tides for the Frome at Wareham indicated as follows on the 19th
    highs at 1042 and 2246h @ 2.1 m
    low 1743h @ 1.0m
    which would seem to leave those of us running back down the river after lunch without much water!
    I see a classic devil and deep blue sea situation arrising - no water but light or no light but water - exactly the sort of choice experience advises one to avoid having to face by meticulous planning. Alternatively another pint to assist the decision making process?

    The river is'nt so bad in the dark, its the first section of the stakes at the harbour. The last 2 or first 2, depends on whic way you look at them, are now lit. The bouys down the wareham channel are also now lit. I've done it in the dark loads of times its not actually that bad. Do the post hoping thing with the sounder and it should be ok. Afew pints to calm the nerves before hand praps!

    OK, to hell with it. Unbolt it and we'll use it as an anchor!
