I certainly am - With Rick again, but in Blue Ray this year rather than on Baby Blue. This way we avoid accommodation booking worries as we'll sleep on board.

Great stuff. I'll look out for two boats on 2nd in ramsgate then. If you're on schedule I probably won't come out to meet you on the Saturday but will cruise with you on Sunday if that's ok. Perhaps I'll have lunch in Eastbourne and head home.

Alex - I'll txt you about accommodation.

Alex / Trev , It's probably me but........With all of the previous fund raising activities for Macmillan , you have made it pretty clear where people can make their donations ! I don't think it's even had a mention in this thread so maybe worth refreshing our memories ?

Best of luck to you all..... Bern

Wow 50 donation already, also 40 from the girls at work and another 10 from my chiropractor

Also doing a daily update for work so hoping to raise some awareness of Macmillan and what we have been doing.

I'm here at biffs with jurgen everythings going well and we have stopped for a cup of tea. The vipermax is awesome, I'm very impressed... Click image for larger version

Have you ever done such trip . I on the other hand have been all they way Round Britain and know exactly what that means so please less such stupid comments
Now now Grumpy, I was just having "the craic" with you. I figured if you could tease the Macmillan boat team about it not being a proper Round Britain Challenge, then I could tease you (in a quiet way) about the Mercruiser inboard diesel failure on your Parker Demo RIB during your recent Round Britain promotion. Did you ever get to be bottom of that?

As you know, I haven't done a RB. However, I understand that it's fairly straightforward - carry lots of fuel (and jelly sweets), keep making progress and turn left at the important corners. Avoid tornadoes too...

I love G wagons but the sight of a yellow G wagon keeps reminding me of that film "layer cake"
