Had a week off visitin' me Dad. Just back. Seats and storage boxes should be in tomorow. With a bit of luck, the diesel heater too.

How's Iceland? It'll be getting dark there soon, I bet.

It was a great day...mind you the Solent was the usual mess of every kind of craft sloshing about ... the racing teams must have amazing reaction speeds...

Met Mike (Scurvy C.), Kev (Aging Youth), Kathryn and Danielle in Pompey and went across to meet RIBnet's latest photographer Slimtim. Brief pause for refreshers in Cowes where we met Team Explosion and Kitten and Sophie...as well as Mike (Cookee's snapper).

Then out to a vantage point where the two photographers on board could get the best possible photos We spotted Graham F and Steve S.... also Brambles and Tim Griffin; and Brian Whiteshoes arrived with the healthiest looking gang you ever saw.

We hung around at the finish which was exciting Them Batboats don't do slow for no-one Then we went into Cowes and met Mark Halliday, Vivienne & Natasha and our neighbour Stuart (Intrepid Capn of Ocean Spear ) & gang... Little refresher in Beer Tent and down to Yarmouth to the King's Head for group lunch. Ran into Dave Robson (Aquapower)as well.

Back to Cowes and a cup of tea in the Fountain 'Otel.
And there we had a jar with Cookee and Kitten who told us all about their last fillum. They are racing again tomorrow so GOOD LUCK !!!

The chocolate brownies were brill...thanks Tim

And we're looking forward to tomoro

Us (Now Bogib...if I remember any more I'll tell you in a minit )

If they're there now, they've likely been around most of the summer but they've been lyin' low.
