I'm going to put more effort in to the local powerboating community this year Scott as last year did only about 50 miles in my own boats up here and 400 miles racing along the South Coast with Team 25.

Hopefully we will find a suitable boat for this season as well but to be honest there's not much about even with our budget having sold the Sunseeker which seems unbelievable, as we are doing RB2011 we need to find the right boat so if this seasons racing suffers so be it we feel.

Hopefully leweslikesboats will have his new boat by the start of the season and it will be good to put faces to the names here.

I would be up for cruises this year. There are a few other ribbers that I could get to come along. Does boat size matter in these cruises or will they cater for all? Cheers

We take all boats, my boat is only 5.5m with 50 hp. Obviously some boats can not take the conditions on the outer forth. We passage plan at 10 knots, so if your boat can maintian 10 knots in rough ish seas we are happy.

If we get a lot of smaller boats we can alter plans to acomodate, but must if all we need to know in advance.

The desicion to go on the cruise is 100% the boat owner, although we will try and give advise if we think your daft going.

I need to get out in one of your boats this year.

Now we could also organise a poker run some where too? If people are up for it and somebody tells me the rules!

We have a good camp sites nearish, at Elie - Shellbay and St Monans. If enough is interested we might get permission to camp at harbour.

Hi All,

A way of not using lists!
