Solent shakedown 2014

This year it was decided to head for lymington for the first on water event.The weather was good with a little wind which made parts of the solent a bit choppy.

 

Four boats left Port Solent and made the way down the solent to meet up in Newtown creek where we stopped for lunch and Raffed along side new members

 

late afternoon it was off to lymington  to meet  other members who had already arrived and with everybody safely berthed there was time for a quick shower before we headed off  to the ship inn for an evening meal.

Sunday morning we woke to the sound of heavy rain which was to last all day ,so most crews decided to head into town for a spot of shopping/pub .

In the evening some met up in town for a curry while some chilled out on there boats.

Monday  morning the weather was fine again so the crews headed back up the solent for a play in the good weather.
