Who's going then?
Lets show these East Coast Forum wide boy rabble how its done eh! and see if we can get two boats within 10x50 binocular range.
We'll be setting off from our executive moorings at about 08.00 Chatham time following anyone that looks like they are heading sort of Southendish way and will keep a good lookout for Fred going in the wrong direction, towards Maidstone probably.
Hoping to go on Sunday but if the weather Gods decide Monday will be nicer we'll go then.

We are planning on going on the Sunday if the weather is OK. Monday if it's not. Probably do a bit of fishing at the same time. I might spend saturday night in Stangate as I won't be able to get out of my berth till about and hour before HW.

Sounds good to me - if re-launch and 1 or 2 other things work out ok. Sunday preferable. Will give you a ring during the week.

Cheers

Nick

Bank holiday weather set to change for the worse
Met Office forecasters are predicting a change to cold, wet and windy weather during the bank holiday weekend. Saturday looks like being a fine day before heavy rain, strong winds and much colder weather sets in for Sunday and Monday – affecting plans for travel and outdoor activities.
