Forget Paris - lets go round The World

Slowly running out of challenges for rib cruises, so decided we ought to have a go at going round The World today. Martini and La Frette set off mid-afternoon and completed our circumnavigation in about 30 mins, which included stopping to take photos!

Oriana

A few years back we went out to see Oriana anchored a few miles east of Jersey. It was a not very pleasant evening but we wanted to be nosey so ventured out.

Much to both our and one of the guests surprise we came eye to eye, the people on the rib wearing drysuits and the delightful lady completely starkers

Sorry to disappoint, but I went round the World in under 5 mins a couple of months back

But I have no evidence as I forgot my camera

Quite agree, still not as bad as that floating office block.
A couple of yammies on the back with trim and tilt and she could do beach landings on Bramble Bank or where ever! Been good advice on here, on how to do it!
