Ah, never caught up with you sorry Shaun. Gutted you had engine probs before we all met up. However v glad someone helped you, the benefit of lots of us out on the water, you must have been in Chris' as we went past. Not sure who had a tornado with a honda on, someone will know.

In the evening I didn't catch you and had to shoot at 9.40. Hope to catch up soon. Pm me when you're around and vice versa. You can hold me to that beer.

Indy R1 looking good. One of the battlers of the day!! Great to see you out. 5 stars to your crew!!
Paul and associates, thanks for organising a great day and we sure made the most of the day despite what the weather threw at us.

Thanks to Tony and Mick also for additional escort back to Base after the wind did it's best to upset the day in the closing hour.

Big thanks also to Chris and his crew you did a great job to manage all the launching and recover's.

a big thankyou to the men at the top, we had a great day - leaving holyhead at 08.30 with 1978searider to meet up at chris's at 10.30. im not a fair weather boater and love the challenge of heavy seas any time, but this was by far the longest ive been out in such conditions, and as stated earlier if it had not been because of the ribnet cruise i would probably have stayed much closer to home. i have to say that being part of such a large group of boats going through the swellies was awesome!

Regards.........Shaun.......
p.s. never got that pint of of humber paul ?
Shaun, It was I that came back to Chris's with you, hope engine problem is nothing major, I suspect a bit of muck in the fuel line. I will see you out again soon
