    Me to, Poole is plan A but I wanted a workable plan B and C.

    I am sure the haven are watching the weather too. They know what we are doing and our boat sizes and I am sure they have a pragmatic aproach to arrangements.

    I spoke to Lymington earlier and was impressed by the way that they had a handle on things. They too have rallies. If the weather is poor they will be have space for us. If the weather is good they won't because all the bookings will turn up, but hey if it's good then we'll be in Poole!

    The only reason we'd not go to Poole is if doing so makes it look highly likely that we'll spend Sunday beating back to Chichester against much over a F6, with rain and low temperatures thrown in. I'd sooner be warm and dry in a pub somewhere.

    That said, were a little bigger than some, so will follow the crowd and enjoy the company if the weather is marginal for all to feel comfortable heading to Poole.

    I think this nails it nicely, Phill.

    I'm sure we have to depart Yarmouth on Saturday to make space for an incoming rally.

    I generally assume that if the weather is bad enough to stop me leaving, it's bad enough to stop others coming, so there will be space available.

    There is that Simon. We're in the designated rally walk ashore area, so they may well have spaces elsewhere. I may come in too.

    They cannot make you put to sea if you don't feel it's safe. That's why they are often reluctant to take bookings for all the births.
