As many of you will know to raise money for Macmillan I am helming the complete circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight in a variety of Ribnet owned boats.
The original plan was to do the 55nm split between 11 boats so roughly 5nm in each rib. Unfortunately it looks like 4 of the 11 will not be able to make it on the day due to unforeseen circumstances.
It's still doable in the remaining 7 ribs but means I have to helm around 8nm in each rib which is taking up more of the helming time in each owners boat.
If anyone else is prepared to let me helm their boat for a part of the trip (with the owner onboard next to me) it would help spread the load on the others.
I hold a commercially endorsed Adv. PB licence and regularly drive a variety of ribs and hard boats so will take care of your pride and joy and will not abuse it (and you will be right there next to me).
So far I am up to around £260 pledged and still growing for Macmillan and will be giving Whisper a cheque on Sunday
Let me know if you can help by letting me helm you rib for a few nautical miles of the trip as I really need to get all the way round to put this money in the Macmillan fund.
