It was a fantastic day and first rib.net event for us, a big thanks to everyone in the community who played a part in organising.

The photos and video are pretty random, and taken on a half decent Sony compact still camera with HD video or a GoPro Hero 3. Apologies if I didn't get a shot of your boat, or I did get a shot and you'd rather I hadn't!

If anyone is interested, we started the day carrying about 375L of fuel and finished with about 250L in the tank. Given the time we were on the water and the distance we covered at let's say a less than optimal cruising speed, we were pretty happy with the consumption.

Cheers,
Greg.
Great vid good pics,nice t meet u Looey

Sure, the Scotseats are pretty good. Just a shame we only have 2 of them! As youngest family member in the boat that day, I was relegated to the bench!!! Until I stood up for a while during a blast past South Stack and we lost the fill in cushion! Glad we were past the rougher stuff by then!

It was a client of mine. His wife is currently being helped by Macmillan and he wanted to thank me in terms of work. I told him about our endeavors and it seemed the most fitting. He knows it went through twice but said Macmilan are welcome.
