My sail this weekend's been called off due to the forecast.
Personally, I'm still quite keen to get out at some point.
Anyone going out in the Solent area this weekend and willing to take an extra crew member?
I'm house trained, easy going, cheerful, capable and happy to share costs, etc.
Will check back here & E-mail address in profile.

Well I went out last Saturday with 4 mates... 'Dads Army' somebody at the boatyard called us, for the youngest was mid forties and the eldest seventy three.
If only we had had the same weather forecast then it may have been far more interesting for the last 'bash' of the season.
Mind you, being in a Twister gives you the edge over a caravan in wind over tide F7 even if you do get a bit wet :-)
Sadly the sails etc have all been taken off so I can't oblige this w/e

However, firstly, if the weather comes as forecast I'd prefer not to be ****ing around with a kite tomorrow, certainly not in the morning. Maybe Sunday. Secondly, if you're looking for some kind of ringer wildcard for serious racing I don't think I'm your man!
If there's an offer I'll certainly come along.
PS: Also my oilies aren't very stylish!
