Good to see some decent ribnetters out!


At least the rain held off and a bonus of a nice bass on the BBQ for dinner.

if you can post how to make a donation to the charities, I would like to donate what I would have spent in fuel to get there and topping the rib up for the day out we have missed, I guess someone should benefit from the weather
You're a bloody star mate! We are sending a cheque on to them when we get back, I will forward the details to you by email soon, although realistically it may be after the trip's over.

Current update:

We have now made it to Troon ready for our trip to Fort William and the Caledonian Canal. We will spend the night on the Canal and arrive in Inverness on Tuesday to start the long journey South. The sun is shining and the wind is dropping so it's all good!

Enjoyed the day,going up and down the straights very windy on the return .
would have been great to see a full racing boat,but safe and sound for the
BananaShark team perhaps they would have more joy with round uk trip or try a trip around a coconut ring like us lol

It was going to be one of the highlights of the trip! Having said that we had a great day today from Troon to the canal and flying up Loch Lochie at top speed - photos to follow from the ground crew to follow!
