IoW Row Sunday Jan 4

Chris Partridge
Administrator
The now almost traditional Isle of Wight row will take place on Sunday Jan 4, when we will row from Lee-on-the-Solent to Cowes for lunch in the Union pub.
It is a five mile row across open water so lifejackets will be worn. High water is about 10.30 so we will be rowing across the ebb both ways.
The plan is to meet at the boat park at 09.30 for a 10.00 departure. We will be back at about 16.00.
In the event that the weather is too aggressive for crossing the Solent we will fall back on Plan B, which is to launch at Warsash and row up the Hamble to the Horse and Jockey.

Yes please Chris - it'll do me far more good than wasting Sunday ironing shirts etc ready for the first week of term!   Has anyone mentioned this jaunt to Russ and the boys and girls at the Yarmouth gig club?  ... tis a slightly longer row for them  - but the post new year airing might appeal ..........

I have indeed mentioned this to Russ and he hopes to get a crew together, though unfortunately he won't be able to row himself due to injury. It is a 10mile slog against the tide for them so I think they would be well advised to tow to Cowes and come out to meet us.
Avery A on the Hamble may be coming as well, so it may be a big Solent galley reunion.
And Henley Whalers also have the date in their diary and are raising a crew.

Hi Chris,
      I'd like to come, but am not yet certain of an exeat.....
...whichever way the wind blows, remember the new entrance (and restrictions) to Cowes....Oh, and the tidal flows near the entrance have altered significantly compared to the Admiralty TSA.

I have one you can borrow, and if anyone else needs one the club has some flotation devices available.

Hi Chris, afraid I'm going to be ducking out of tomorrow's row - hope that eases the over-subscription crowding a bit?   Have a damned fine row - whichever way it goes!

Please note the new time for the start - to ensure we get out of the boat park in good time before the tide comes in, please foregathr at 09.00 rather than 09.30 as advertised. Thanks.
We have 12 for tomorrow's row:
Tim 
Shelley
Mike
Victoria
Les
Rachel
Marion
Douglas
Alan

Andrew is bringing a gig but is short of a couple of rowers, so could two of you experienced in the ways of thole pins transfer to him? Please nevertheless come to the boat park at the start so we will have enough muscle to get the trailers down the slipway.
Henley Whalers are bringing Molly and I believe a couple of boats are coming from the Hamble so it should be a good crowd at the Union.
The forecast is grey but dry, not too cold and with a gentle breeze (F2).
