Had a superb weekend...thanks everyone for your excellent company!!!

Although the Solent currently looks like a 'warship marina' we managed to get round alright and meet loads of you!!!

Some great stops in the sunshine , some excellent camping (shhhhh ) and even swimming!!! (Wimps ).

Don't think the marines quite knew what to make of a powerboat called 'Explosion'

All looks very orderly and civilised all the same. Ribald's probably worn out from organising everyone !

Ray B. We'll explain all when we catch up !!!

Oh yes we got photos. Oh yes

K & P
