Saturday row to Portchester Castle for Tea

Chris Partridge

The weather forecast for Saturday is nice, with sun and a gentle northerly breeze. High water is mid-afternoon (15.40, 4.3m) so i propose a jaunt to Portchester Castle for tea. Bring a flask and suitable accompaniments. There will be prizes for the thinnest cucumber sandwiches and the thickest Dundee cake.
We will meet at the boat park at 13.30 so we can get in the water and under the bridges as quickly as possible.

John would like to come please.  Unfortunately Liz can't due to another commitment that means she couldn't get there till 13.45 at the earliest, and anyway you have 6 people with John. So unless you get enough for a 2nd boat it will be just John at 13.30 and not Liz.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm the mere mention of going under Bridges stirs the blood and brings a smile to my lips, 12 miles with chums in the autumn sun with a dash of culture  and cake thrown in plus the chance of getting ones head biffed and brains fried by high tension power lines, irresistablešŸ˜Ž

Marcus and I would like to come, we have a wedding at 12 noon at Church so will get Theresa near to 1.30pm as we can.  Then off to evening do at 6pm, fun, fun, fun.  If Chris you have too many, we can always step down.  I have apple cake to bring.

..."will get Theresa near to 1.30pm"...
What has Theresa ever done to you?
There is space in a boat for anyone with apple cake!

I would like to come but how long would the row be approximately.  I have the usual problem of having to be in two places at once at 5.00pm
