    Don't know what is on the previous 7 pages...had abot 6 hours sleep since Thursday, and got two boat features to write today - deadlines!

    Anyway, contacted Runswick boat, they will definitely be down on Sunday morning and will be happy to link up. Stathies boat no reply as yet, but will try again, maybe they have sufficient crew available to come round on Saturday for an exercise withus. Here's hoping.

    Off to Poole fo r08.00 in the morning for two more days boat work (on road for 04.00 in morning....)

    See you all Saturday/Sunday. I will travel up on Friday after lunch...working on Friday as well..

    Those coming, remember to bring:
    kayak
    paddle
    B.A.
    paddle leash if you have one - if not, I will have some with me on the day.

    Also worth having with you, but not required on your person for the "course" elements all your safety kit:
    First Aid kit, VHF, etc, etc.

    When we do the course, just have the very minimum out with you - we will be within 100m of the shore or so for much of it (depth permitting). Anyone wanting to venture off for some fishing in the evenign - I would like to get the rod out for a few hours if I can keep my eyes open!

    9am on the beach as far as I'm aware. Will be dragging the caravan up thursday night so that its done for friday. I'm going to forgoe the course on the saturday, maybe do it on the sunday depending on numbers. Will be giving our Ducky some support for his jump. Depending on tide/weather we could actually paddle from Runswick, if not we can launch from behind the supermarket in the town. Be good if anyone else whos not on the course could join us. Know Spud will do it with me. :happy:

    Like the idea of supporting Ducky, would be good to have a bunch of yakkers down there to show our support.

    I hope the rest of you lads and lasses can make it, if anyone is having trouble let me know. There is still room on the Saturday if anyone wants to attend. Don't want to preach but this really is the best thing you can attend to keep you safe on the water. If your kayaking PLEASE DO THE COURSE.

    got to give my apology's for absence unfortunately almost 10,000 miles away & her who must be obeyed cant get weekends off. hope the weather is kind & you all enjoy the weekend.

    Sorry to hear about the shoulder Dave, hope it wasn,t the casting that done it :wink: If Kim is looking for a lift i am sure one of the young lads would be happy to look after her :wink: :wink: :tease:

    You ve guessed spot on Dave,had two chucks with a rod far too powerful for me and haven t been able able to pick a rod up for over a week now.So I m still on a rest regime as got another comp this Sunday but doubt will be able to cast,but incase not aggravating it yakking.Besides it really was painful last week and don t want to risk paddling out on the sea with an injury.......would go completely against some of the points I know Simon will raise ,ssuch as paddling fitness.

    I m hoping this year is better for me than last, but it s not getting off to a good start,an injury,a 5 week course at work just started and a bllody expensive kayak gathering dust along with a couple of hundred punds worth of bass lures that i ve been aquiring over the winter !!

    Good luck to those going on the course ,you will I m sure all benefit from it and wish I was able to go out but not risking long term damage to my shoulder.

    Cheers Jellyworm.
