    Back is still playing up but still hoping to get to Yarmouth on Friday. Plan is to sleep on board Thursday night and get an early start Friday. My worry is that I'll only have my 11 year old with me do no backup if the back plays up. But I will just have to rest, wait and see.

    My boat is now fully provisioned and I'm sat at port Solent having a quick pint in the hope it will drive away the cold I've picked up. I hear ale has all sorts of vitamins

    Lots of B vitamins in cask-conditioned ale.

    No idea if B vitamins are good for colds though

    You're way ahead of us. I've just got down from the attic where I've been trying to find all the stuff that we put up there last year. Still got loads to do tonight so that we can head off early tomorrow.

    Phill, I can happily single hand our boat and the Mrs is a very competent yachtswoman. So if the back goes bad on you, she could hop aboard with you to haul some ropes if need be. We'll be on our way down the Solent to Yarmouth on Friday too, so allay your worries in the knowledge that there will be back-up (pun not intended) not too far away then should it be required, and likewise throughout the weekend.

    Simon, thanks, that does add piece of mind. I'm getting better but its a case of wait and see.

    All, I am sure you saw this, but its useful info about the shingles bank:

    Booger. Just heard my mate's missus is not very well, and they're going to have to call it off.

    I'll still be coming though; will have to see if any friends fancy joining me at short notice.

    Chimet is showing F3 NE and Bramblemet is showing F3/F4 NE at the moment so you might find more wind on the way to Cowes.
