looks like being a run over on the 30 July (Sun) following the firework display in Swanage on the evening of the 29th.

obviously subject to a weather window, and return extremely flexible, but at least the start point and and date are firming up!

At the moment we have the kind offer of a larger forumite's boat that could take 'sensitive passengers' which is a huge bonus to smaller craft if the weather is marginal.........
