Blimey, Brian, everyone has the right to take a small risk in their lives but this family is overdoing it a bit aren't they?

Predicted log

Competitors must state in advance their cruising speed and predict their finishing time. All clocks, watches, and navigational instruments with the exception of magnetic compasses, echo sounders and engine instruments must be removed or covered. The winner will be the rib completing the course with the mimimum error compared to their predicted time.

Looking forward to it. Nice to see a straight forward passage plan in your file.

All to well known big buoys

all anyone needs is a compass and even thats not really needed as they are BIG buoys.

you could have made ut a little harder - maybe blindfold the driver

So in summary

around the IOW estimate your journey time and drink beer afterwards

but I only sent a cheque for £ 15-00 to Katie 'cos that's all it said on the form.

I hope you're buying lots of beer at the Royal Solent with all these fivers that you're collecting....

Can't open the instruction file as this PC is telling me it's infected ! ?
