Wow, what a great day for it!

It didn't rain, the water was only rough where it should have been - couldnt have had a better day for this time of year!

Although I did manage to touch the bottom slightly while going into christchurch harbour while coming down from wave :|... but only gently, and it was mud - so no damage done thankfully.
Managed to get some video footage - but due to some slight operator error - there isn't as much footage as I'd hope - I havent used the camera for ages .... so was expected !

I need to find my old video capture card and I will get the footage onto the pc, and into a format to show others.

Nice to meet everyone that was there today (Can't remember all of yours names sorry :S), we had a cracking day and hope to do it again soon!

We touched the bottom too. Removed paint from the skeg - was only repainted a couple of weeks back after getting stuck on Ryde Sands a year ago! Great day - loads of fun, thanks for arranging it!

No video yet Benc?

Here are some pics, very atmospheric I must say, of us putting the Barrier II to bed back in London!!

I am sooooo glad of those services on the M3. After a long day on the water and then a drive back I'm normally totally s@#gged. Thank god for Costas coffee!!

Unfortunately no pics of us out on the water so my crew is banished from boating for a week!
