We won! :)

To everyone else, let me explain:

We'd spent the night at anchor at Osborne Bay (again) among all the yachts that had rocked up for the Round The Island race - we were the only mobo to about 30 yachts! We stayed until all the yachts were coming back in the afternoon, then left and followed the racers across the line. It was a great time out, and watching the RTI boats was awesome! We've always missed it in previous years due to boat issues, so really pleased we finally get to see the madness!

On the way back, we were sort of accidentally involved in a race with a Sealine S41 around Bramble Bank and all of the way down Southampton Water. It wan't a real race, but as we tried to overtake, it became evident that they had cottoned on and didn't want us knocking their pride in our little 19' Fletcher! Anyway, trying to maintain 30+kts through the Solent chop off Calshot lead to one hell of a wet ride! Wicked good fun though, even if I, and everything I had on board with me is still a bit soggy!

Oh, and when I say we stayed at Osborne Bay again... last time we were there, the OH took this really rather cool time lapse. I love the way that as the light fades our bow remains in focus as the rest of the world slips away. Its got a touch of dream sequence about it. Certainly going to be one to keep the boating blues at bay come the winter.


I'm so glad I got him a Go Pro for Christmas!

Nice video.
We returned to OV from Portsmouth Saturday and sustained a bit of damage in the lumpy stuff both to boat and myself.
Glad the Mrs wasn't with us as it would have put her off even more from coming out on the boat.

Nice video. That Sealine sure throws out a lumpy chop.

Sorry to hear that. What sort of damage?

Enjoyed the video :)

Saturday pm was quite lumpy west of Cowes ... mini-FP woke up to find waves all over the place, and we were down to 15/16kts going across to Beaulieu.
It's fun for 10 minutes or so, but quite glad to get in the shelter of the river to find some flat water, and lunch.

Nothing too dramatic, Bimini frame came away from bracket, microwave dish flew out and smashed, wc cabinet mirror fell off hinges and more annoying my beer bottles broke in the fridge and leaked all over the floor.
Crew got wet and I sustained bruising to my arm trying to get fenders in and a cut leg from somewhere.

Not too experienced in this type of boating and so I throttled back to 6knts until closer to Southampton waters.

We don't have that problem... Don't have a microwave, wc (let alone a cabinet to go in one) or a fridge! Aah the joys of basic boating :)


What mount do you use for the Go Pro? Holds it nicely.

It's the official Go Pro suction mount just mounted to the windscreen. Seems to hold fast - though we do always have a bit of line tied round the camera to anchor it to something fixed on board. No matter how good it is, I just can't trust a sucker to hold £300 in place!
