Well done for hitting the target which I guess could be at least doubled by the time of the cruise

Well my predictions were correct

I will still have a few passengers so more cash will be added to the pot and I guess new donations will be made.

Extra boat now running with you. I am turning out as I had planned with our new RIB and will have a reporter on board who will do an article "story on the actual day, a feature on the “cruise in company” as a social feature".

I have also asked for some bids from two/three companies involved for the charity so I will update as I hear more.

During the run I hope to have some images done on the new boat and its use, I have asked for some friends to join me aboard and hope to have some more spaces too. I will run from The Hamble.

Unfortunately I won't be able to join you in our own RIB however I'm still interested in joining you.
Would anyone have a spare seat so I could tag along? I'm 17 years old so could be an eager cabin boy/deck hand I have my own Go Pro style camera so I could do some filming.
If anyone could offer a seat I of course would donate extra for the opportunity.
I live in Cowes so Ideally if I can be picked up there it would be great, however I'm sure I could meet elsewhere on the Island.
Any opportunities would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I gave both engines a service today and run them up, all seems to be tickety-boo

It'd need to be flat calm to tempt me across the channel just for a lap of IOW but you might see me there

300nm round trip...3 litres per nm at cruising...90ish ppl...hmm.... :o
