Some discussion earlier and folks wanted more pics: here are some for you which I hope you'll like (including the RIB that went UNDER B&Q):

What a day it was. Never seen so many RIB's in one place before!

The moderate/small waves/swell meant we were all having to permanently adjust our speed as we were in pretty close proximity -I got bumped on the stern a couple of times by press RIBs. Great atmosphere and no accidents - that I saw anyway.

Cheers all, Jonathan

Thanks for the pictures. I really wanted to be there but work prevented it so it's great to see what it was like from the view of a RIB. Great pictures!

Excellent pictures Jonathan. Thanks for sharing them. I especially like the 'arty' type ones and the ones inside the boat - gives you a feel of the 'person' behind the headlines.
