Last year, the final total of boats indicated as coming was 26 which was a record at the time. I didn't count how many eventually turned up (although it wasn't far off the full number) but, as always with these things, the full total is never achieved (illness, breakdown - as you know! -, slipped timing, weather etc.). With over a month still to go and a few usual suspects not yet listed, we are already not far short of last year so it could well be a new record.
I attach an updated list in which I have included the full RV details in its heading for ease of reference. I have also included totals for the number of boats and persons on board. For the latter, I have assumed one for each boat in the absence of any indication otherwise. Please let me know if this is wrong and of any amendments or additions needed and I will include them in the next version in due course.
I suggest that final numbers for alerting the pub and harbour master should be with me by 18 December.
