With Phil’s permission I have taken over the Saturday row because we have been invited to join Hamble River Rowers in a row to Wootton Creek IoW, a distance of about five miles.
The plan is to launch at Lee-on-the-Solent and row over for a picnic tea on the foreshore at Fishbourne, next to the car ferry terminal. There is a nice park there.
The forecast is for sun and light winds (hooray!). HW is at 1600 ish.
The itinerary is as follows:
1100 Meet at boat park, load boats onto trailers.
1200 Depart for Lee.
1300 Launch Lee.
1400 Arrive Fishbourne.
1600 Depart Fishbourne.
1700 Arrive Lee.
1800 Return Langstone.
Please bring a picnic contribution - essentials include wafer-thin cucumber sandwiches, smoked salmon blinis, twiglets, fondant fancies and cake. If anyone feels inclined to bring a bott of fizz, feel free.
Lifejackets will be carried.
Post here if you are tempted (OF COURSE YOU ARE).
Am unable to get my dog sitter to look after my little dog on Saturday for the day....just wondered if it might be possible for me to drive direct to Lee on Solent for launch at 12.30 ?
This will help as she won't be on her own for too long during the day
completely understand if not.
