I understand that not many of you went by boat but by ferry.

Bladerun

Hi Bandit
A few found it tough due to the weather so it was a bit disjointed at the beginning however because we were delayed starting by 24hrs a number jumped on the ferry to make the party in Oostende!!, however we picked up a few more in Blankenberg (Donzi) and Rotterdam including three Rubson Raid RIBs, the highlight probably the Hustler being clocked by the Amsterdam water police doing 95mph, the wrong side of the Ijmuiden locks.

Interestingly the one hit leg back from Amsterdam to Ramsgate put's the round britain into perspective.

Cheers John

John

Great to catch up in 'not so sunny Ramsgate'!! Cheers for the SH speaker, Micky Dee looks the business and I'm sure the punters will have a 'seal' of a time on it. The crossing was pretty sporting as you can imagine, you were there! but good giggle, and with the following sea Alex and I managed to chalk up one good stuffing a piece...
The highlight must be the B52 Seagull and the Mackrell, I hope you wearn't taking photos!!!

All the best

Greg
