What Nomadic events are coming up. Also, if anyone's planning a non-Nomadically-arranged trip and/or looking for others to join in.

This weekend - 3/4 July

Post by Sue »

Hello .. anybody ? (again!)

This weekend is looking promising - particularly Sunday.

What plans does anyone have? Richard is looking at Roadford; I'd probably prefer Portland, although Newton (despite the lack of loos!) may be an option, too.

Looking forward to LOTS of postings on this one .

I'll be in Cornwall for the weekend and hoping to get out somewhere on Sunday, maybe Marazion or even Gwithian.

I am considering Hamworthy on Sunday. The tides are right for Poole and after such a long time it is a comfortable place to sail. I'll consider Portland if others are going.

I expect Weston is off due to the T4 event this weekend :-(
If found, please return to the pub.

Hello all

Yes, think WSM is a no-goer unfortunately this weekend.

Tomorrow if the wind picks up I'll pop up to Axbridge. It's looking marginal at the moment though.

Am still undecided re Sunday over Newton (it looks like there may be rain in Wales, which would put me off - I'm sure Kelvin will say that doesn't matter!), or Portland, which should be sunny. Portland is looking excellant for Sunday, and tides are good. I think the forecasts may change a little still, so I'll recheck tomorrow evening and let you know my plans.

Neil - I'm not likely to go to Hamworthy as it's further than either of my other two options.

Ian - it's not far for you to get to Portland is it? Axel likes it there, too!!

Next week is looking good, and the tides are better at WSM for us.

Pity about Weston being out of bounds on the 1st possible sailing day for me this year :(

I think I'll head over to Newton tomorrow (Sun).
It's an ill wind that never blows at all.

Am torn between Newton and Portland (want to do both!), but had loosely arranged to meet a friend at Newton whom I know from Dahab hols, so Newton it is now.
Will look out for Martin and for any other Nomads.

Chris, Gerry and Neil - hope you have a good day too.

Sorry to post after the event but Brean is only a couple of miles further than Weston with almost identical conditions. I ended up there after being unaware of the T4 event - the only problem being the M4 signing was taking the T4 traffic to the Burnham junction.

Still a pleasant warm day on the water!!!

Portland 4th July

Post by gerrys »

Chris and I made it down to Portland and had one of those classic days. Plenty of wind and sunshine. I have to admit I was on a 7.5 and Chris a 6.5, but there were plenty of occasions when we should have changed down, but we were enjoying ourselves too much! :D :D :D

The boat yard was very busy, but at 12:00 there were still spaces to be had, even if you had to park on top of sunbathers, picnic goers to do so!..... :wink: (Yes in carpark spaces!)

The tide was very favourable as well, plenty of water all day. This was our first time on the water since last year and we managed about 3 hours on the water. Well knackered by the time we got home.

Sorry to say we didn't meet any other NOMADS, but sorry if we missed you.
