bilksem .... from Belgium!
natalie and "friend", no boat but will bring rum and bacon butties!
Regarding the 50 names and 6 turn up, last year we had 20 names and 18 turned up, and that was with rubbish weather.
A hardy bunch with hardy boats all up for a good cruise in fine weather and a good blast in bad weather means a good day out.
No better place than a cruise to find your feet in bad weather. Last year all were looked after and many smaller boats reduced to just the skipper by other kind larger boat owners. This enabled safety, fun and valuable experience for all involved.
