They moved in from next door while we were away (the wasps I mean )

Hey we saw Leviathan and DR too...or I mean heard (cos I was bowing at the time and Paul was touching his forelock ).

I'll remember more stuff after grub.

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 )
Well we attempted to call over about 10.30am to say hello,confusion reigned and boats seemed to be coming from all directions,we didnt see anyone we knew,I dont think Sue has forgiven me judging by the cartoon.
Gave up in the end and had lunch on the beach at Chichester.
Recovery was delayed on our return by rescuing a couple of jetskis from the shipping lanes(ever tryed towing a jetski at more then 4 knots?).
