Anyone going out for cowes week racing tomorrow?

It's been a while since I spent any time on here, hoping some of the old regulars are still around?

A cheeky request, but was wondering if anyone was out tomorrow (14th) from Yarmouth or Cowes to blat about a bit and watch the Cowes Week racing and would have space for two extra for a couple of hours? I wanted to take out my other half in my rib but the flywheel on the engine decided to fall apart (Flywheel for Tohatsu 70hp). Somewhat disappointing since we came all the way from RIBless Switzerland to spend time on the water :-(

Obviously willing to contribute to fuel etc.

Thanks in advance!

Tim

Hi Tim, nice to see you still visit us from time to time. What you up to in Switzerland?

Sorry to hear you've got problems with the outboard and sorry I can't help you with a trip out, I'm only out down the Eastern approaches to the Solent later this week (tend to keep away from the wafi's during Cowes week).

Enjoy your holiday.

Hi Andy, how are you? I'm designing mountain bikes in Switzerland so I get to ride or ski around the Alps every weekend but don't get to do any ribbing! I miss the sea :-(

Sounds like you have a wonderful life! I hear where you're coming from when you say you miss the Sea.
