Could make an afternoon of it then with a BBQ afterwards / waterfront bar if the weather is good.
I'll be there too! Looking forward to it.

Sounds like a good weekend plan coming together - will be out on the water watching the fireworks on Fri PM too.

I have a spare seat if anyone wants to join, launching from the Hamble.

It is now touch and go as to whether the Ballistic will be fit for tomorrow - she's currently getting an injector replaced on the Etec

I'm still up for the event though, so if there are spare seats available that will be my Plan B.

Any thoughts about where and when to meet up?
