Hi David,

Of course I don't!!

Obviously I can only go on my own experience - and to be fair to yourself & Paul, I can say that both Poole & Brixham are beautiful places to visit with lots to see and do and both offer ideal powerboat training grounds, IMHO. I have visited both as a tourist and lived for 12 years in South Devon.

So, in conclusion, Rich L wherever you decide to go I'm sure your family will have a great time and you'll have an even better time!!

Sorry - is that better now? If anyone calls you a Southern Wuss you tell me and I'll sort 'em out.

There's no stigma in taking the RIB on the IOW ferry - did it last year. Saves all the angst in not being able to get back when the weather closed in as it did the year before.

Mind you felt a bit of a pillock getting a coffee & danish in full dry suit - got some very nervous glances from the other passengers - kept being asked "did I know something they didn't"

At least I took my boat with me unlike another well known person who travelled incognito

Yep

(Rich - sorry for digressing from the theme of your original post. Would be happy to accompany you across to Yarmouth if need be. Will be booking a course for my Scurvy Crew shortly to be taken in our boat - could split the cost if interested. PM for further details.)
