Yep he had to wait for us. I was pretty near the back of the he fleet for the start, and as soon as we went past he gave it the berries and accelerated behind us. I have him a friendly wave of thanks. I'll post a photo of it "hovering" waiting for us to go past.

I forget to mount my crystal ball on the console yesterday.

He wasn't on the beach, he was on the water making one hell of a noise whilst we cruised past.

If we had known we would have given way but how would we have known ? he could have called up on 16 as many of us had 16 on watch.

With regard to the Jurassic Cruise, if it is planned for September of later, I will offer up to 12 seats for a donation for each, for anyone who cant make it on their own RIB, with all money going to the Charity.
It's a bit of coast I know quite well .......
