    +1 but minus 3 year old and car, snug in island harbour Newport. Behind closed lock gates and between two rolling rag and stickies with whistling in-mast rigs. TGFHTs as getting off the boat for ablutions a HSE no no but a good british depression blow beats a Florida hurricane any day.

    Island Harbour always seems wrong for the tides if going anywhere, but a lovely sheltered spot - must be showing its virtues right now.

    Is there a bus service to Newport ? Last time I asked at the Folly the bus link from Whippingham had been scrapped, a nice walk but only in good weather.

    A huge shame about the paddle steamer Ryde, I used to go on for the disco as a teenager but she's consigned to history now.

    Thumbs down Re: Weather looks a little fruity this fri/sat

    Given the current forecast, I wonder what the insurers and the authorities think of anybody who voluntarily puts to sea❓

    Shame is, some of them may have to risk their lives in subsequent totally avoidable incidents.

    And has anybody looked at the forecast for next weekend? Too early to be sure but it could be doing it again.

    Yes, next Saturday 30 Gusting 40 and very wet and Sunday 28 Gusting 36 but no rain.

    As you say, things have time to change.

    Currently here at Walton - full gale and very gusty but warm and sunny.

    Very pleasant in the basin behind the cat flap but I wouldn’t want to be at anchor at Stone Point‼️

    I think partly owing to its cliff location, the Needles does seem to produce some high reading.

    Still, a big old blow today

    There is a bus service from the main road though not marina. The walk into town has been upgraded to to a cycle track taking around 40minutes on foot but.less on a berth neighbour's skateboard. Taxis easy at £8-10 each way to Newport depending on traffic delays,water taxis too but costly.. I was thedirty dancer next to you in that disco BTW.

    I have a 31ft displacement Motorboat with wheelhouse. Plan to leave Bembridge at hw portsmouth tomoz.

    Hopefully in the Lee of the Island up to Cowes. Then either pull into Cowes and leave the boat. Or head to Yarmouth home port, but looks like wind over tide on the nose to Yarmouth.
