Keith - is this your new forum signature?
It does appear to be. I like it, although I have to say it's a bit, um, generic. It could be anyone, reeely

Yes indeedy. There's been a bit of a running saga with our sigs, mainly centered around 4 strokes being superior to 2 strokes. Or is it the other way around??

Now there's no sport to be had from Codbasking everyones turned to gotbashing! Damn you all!!

Seriously I said I'm sorry, I know I cross the line sometimes but it's all in good humour. Basically if you always take what I say with a pinch of salt, add a bit of vingar, then rub it in to make the words disappear you're on the right track

No... back to the topic in hand. I'm trying to co-ordinate a bunch of Dutchies intent on covering the 800km in two days, one of whom looks like a big scary viking, we've got all these stiffies coming over from the south coast wanting to join the fun and all you can do is gotbash!? Come on Martini, Erin, Malthouse - isn't there a bit of organising to do!?

OK seriously though, I guess it was a bit out of turn to call all you people fannies but still, you did all get in an awful flap, its only 60 miles which if flat calm and at 30 knts average is 2hrs 30. Obviously longer for those without a Cougar and Veradoro 350 butat a more realistic 25 knts average including possiible lunch break it would be under 3.5 hrs which isnt too bad, I don't think. AFAIAA, Martini is planning 160~ miles direct Falmouth, now that will be hard

I look forward to meeting you in July, I'm the young one with all his life still to live -- and the seductive blonde hair

Aye, so apply some basic maths and you'll see that journey will take exactly 2 hours at an average speed of 30 knots - not 2hr 30 as you suggested! Maybe more attention the basics of speed=distance/time in your physics class rather than worrying the teacher with bose-einstein condensates!

But what about the lunch break I added to the equation? GD takes a good half hour to eat his grub
