If the weather stays like that I'll be coming by boat from Poole. Anyone else coming from Poole want to join me either in their boat or as crew on Grimalkin? (I'll be on my own since Mrs A is unfortunately exhibiting cakes at a cake fair)

I have posted this on the RIB 4 Macmillan Thread so I thought I would post it here too...

Marquee's up so Lisa from Macmillan will be set up in there if anyone needs anything or info etc

Crew2's sorted some name tags if anyone wants one so you know who you're talking to.

Weather's sorted

Press is sorted

Writing PBR story at the moment, I will need your support

Macmillan Cancer support has wished us well

A lady cried on me yesterday when I told her what we had done and the 'Out of Nothing' concept

So much work has gone into to this behind the scenes so I hope you all enjoy a nice relaxing lunch in the sun with great company.

Map attached of where we are and where the RIB Rides are running from...

Dry Run can fit about 20 - 25 ribs in rafted up, moorings are near the RIB 4 Macmillan sign on the map below...

And dont't forget the following information copied from KB's website...

QHM Portsmouth are still rigorously enforcing the regulations for boats entering and leaving Portsmouth Harbour. On slipping from the pontoons and again when in the vicinity of the Camber entrance you are required to call up QHM on Channel 11 and request to cross from Camber Docks to Ballast Pile and upon return request to cross from Ballast Pile to Camber Docks. Boats entering and leaving the Harbour should use the small boat channel on the Gosport side.

See you Sunday

Nice one, will see you all there, have posted a few tweets and FB updates to try to help.

Yes remember the access into Portsmouth Harbour is well controlled and you must use small boat channel in AND out and MUST seek permission to cross from Ballast Pole to Camber docks and return. This is a busy port with many passenger ferries and strong tidal flows at the harbour entrance

Should be a great day.

Well said. Couldn't put it any better myself

I'm a thousand miles away but will most certainly be thinking of you all on Sunday and there's absolutely no doubt that the sun's going to shine all afternoon!

A fantastic achievement guys an' gals.
