Strictly come ribbing

About three weeks ago, Andre and I were invited to take some VIPs for a spin on a RIB. The VIPs in question were one of the celebrities from strictly come dancing and her partner. I was most amused when she turned up with huge shades on, a small jacket and heels. Not the most appropriate boating attire! Anyway, we put some waterproofs on them, took her heels off her (much to Andre's relief) and took them for a blast around the East Solent in Solent Blast - Parker 900 baltic. They absolutely loved it. The boat handled perfectly, as usual, all in all leading to a very positive first experience for these first time boaters.

Jimbo happened to be out on a yacht. One of his students took these pics, unfortunately not the best quality but you get the idea!
