What a great trip and thanks to all the others who tipped us off to the the event. We left Chi harour about 1500 staight into quite thick fog with visibilty down to around 50 m at times , this cleared after the Forts and we arrived in Cowes in glorious sunshine .
High spots were seeing flames coming from the stern of OLD SPICE shouting at Pete7 that he was on fire to be calmy told its a BBQ ! Meeting Jimbo and Tim M with assorted lovely girls . Can you imagine how poorly equiped Evolutions is ? No corkscrew on board!!!! We of course saved the day with that one . Left about 1900 had a pint at the Folly and caught up with Pete 7 Nauti and I think the Jackeens sorry did not say hello .
Fab run to Pompey to drop off one of our crew to catch the train back to London then home to HISC just in time for last orders . Great trip can't wait for next year hope the tides work out .

From inside, the rolling stones were pretty amazing. I have some video on my phone that I will try and post, or at least some photos. The river and opposite bank looked very busy, much more so than previous years...apparently the sound wasn't too good outside the main arena though?

The sound was grand. In fact I wouldn't have minded had it deteriorated considerably during Keef's solo. (Johnny Depp's old dad in Pirates )

Doubt if old Sir Keith would get through the first round of Pop Idol these days
