There was a good turnout for an early season cruise, some challenging conditions and a tow for one member. All part of an active club and keen members, look at our Forum for pics and we’re all looking forward to the 'Season Opener' Weymouth cruise in late April.
This is always an exciting time; it's usually one of the first real cruises of the yearand a good shake down for crews and boats after the winter. Two RIBS temporarily went AWOL but all was fine in the end, a great BIBOA Season Opener for all.
Two articles of news from the RYA will be of interest to you this month; one on the unfortunate theft of more outboards (we need to be extra vigilant and remember to bring to the attention of the authorities any 'cheap outboards' being offered...) and one more enlightening piece about protecting the sea horses in Studland bay (where not to lay your anchor).
So you buy a GoPro Hero HD, attach it to your boat, press record and this is what you get... notice my later videos are better quality, I have now started using it on 'R3' which records 60 frames a second (720p) and the footage is a lot clearer.
