Well the forecast was for nothing more than 8 knotts. Whilst that was significantly exceeded on Satuday afternoon - there were characters out planing with big kit - it didnt tempt any Ocean Motionites out despite being a glorious warm sunny day. Instead the OMWC walking club came into their own once again with an apparently most enjoyable walk around the estuary at Chichester. (I wasnt there as I was sitting on the beach in case anyone else was daft enough to turn up!)

Saturday evening we took up Seacourts very kind offer of a meal and a pint for 6.50 - so long as we watched the Rugby on the big screen. Only trouble was the event was rather oversubscribed so it was difficult to see the screen at all! Shame about the result as well!

Sunday was another glorious day - for walking and gardening - gave the lawn its final (hopefully) mow of the year - but didnt get to go sailing. Never mind - there's always next weekend - hope to see you all at Poole.

Definitely a good weekend for walking

Saturday was good, Sunday was even better. We went for a glorious walk across the South Downs, starting from Cocking.

Thanks Mike for hosting, an excellent weekend even though there was no wind.
