There will doubtless be more (and better ones!) along soon. Hope everyone made it back safely.

I can only do some of them: there were too many new faces for me to remember them all (old age has many disadvantages!)

A GREAT day ! Cant believe I was putting sun tan lotion on & wearing shorts today ! Mat up with Avocet for an easy 40knt cruise to Portsmouth , bit of petrol & then a more gentle run back to Yarmouth with a few stops on the way, ending up with 2 groups . Pretty flat out , but one moment will stay with me when jigsaw was fully out of the water while someone ( notsure who) was trying to hang on & take pics !

I will get photos sorted & thanks to all for a great day & sorry to those I didn't talk to properly .

Pete

Yes was a super fanstastico day. Sam, Andrea and Ryan all enjoyed themselves. They enjoyed the lumps and bumps around the back of the Island, but couldn't really explore the full potential of Venom due to my crew.

I was well impressed with Bam Bam and the way he kept up with all of us. Good on ya!

I think that Maddest RIBnutter should go to Gibbo! Bl@*dy hell man you must have lumps, bumps and bruises all over your body. I bet you're aching tomorrow at least 3 times I saw that you nearly came out and had to refit your seat on each occasion.............Mad, but well impressed

I'd post some pictures, but my crew member for the day was busy taking Sky/Sea shots You know the sort Nasher

Nice to meet up with all of you today, the Wheatsheaf didn't let us down did it.
