I've got 3 months recovering from a snapped Achilles!😢
Man, that's painful! Speaking from a recent experience (not snapped) you have my sincere sympathies

Late notice I know, I'm suddenly free tomorrow and would love to do the trip again , but won't be able to get the boat there

Anyone looking for crew / passenger for tomorrow, for a fuel contribution, naturally?

Coming from Gloucester, Calshot / Southampton / Warsash / Portsmouth would be my best RV points

I've already made a donation in support of the cause.

Drop me a pm or probably better give me a call 07743 322835.

Thanks,

Bob

They had to use my big toe tendon to bridge the gap, so I've now got a floppy toe too!
It snapped jumping off the rib in kimeridge car park so SWMBO had to tow the boat back to Essex and she did an amazing job!
Not our best weekend away.

Thanks for the sympathies, have a great trip tomorrow😀

Thank you so much for organising again Alex.
What was the boat count, as we didn't hear once we had left Sandown, and any update on how much was raised today ?
Sorry to not see you at The Needles.
Kind regards
James

Did everyone get round? The leg from St Catherine's to the needles was probably tough on the 4m boats.

Thanks to Alex & helpers.

Time for me to go and donate!

I was in a 5.4M Searider and found it a little bit lumpy going from Freshwater heading round the Needles.

Was amazed though that I only used 30L of fuel!

We got round - although it was pretty lumpy. Luke (age 14) did very well in the 4m and despite the conditions Rory had a sleep for about 40 mins!
