Have we got any local news covering the event ? It might even be a record, is there a guiness record for number of ribs rounding the isle of wight in one go ? Do we have enouth ribs or do we need some more ?

Im working on an idea to raise some funds but not sure if it will come off, im going to ask someone where I work which is a large company if they could sponsor in terms of donating to the charity a sum around 1000 and in return I will fly their flag which I will have to get made up off my flag pole and wear fancy dress in return. Not sure how it will go down as they allready sponsor lots of stuff but they do like publicity and the part of the business im thinking about is very active on publisity and marketing at the moment.

I know it's a bit late, but has anyone got any space for my Dad (will make a suitable donation) as I only have a single jockey on my searider and I don't think 3-4 hours sat on the tubes is going to be too easy on the back

Cheers

hi guys sorry i dont post much but i cant get the android app on my new phone

camping some of us are camping at riverside next to merc marine
we will prob launch at warsash if you big guns need help we`ll be about

it`s not about donating rather than the taking part ,this is gonna be an awesome day not to be missed

i`ve tried various things to get some dough in , were not the richest of folks so were working our tillers off just to get 3 or 4 donations but to me it`s the fact you care

i`ve been working to get a `main sponsor` on board and have so far failed unless your in the corporate line it`s hard going but thats no excuse not to try

coventry telegraph are covering our involvement and mcmillan cov have been helpful too

the big c has had an effect on all of us, its a fantastic chance to see if we can make a real impact , the ripple generated by one pepple can create a combined wave capable of creating a lasting legacy .
