Don't let him organise anything for Christ's sake - we'll be white water rafting down the Colorado in 4m RIBs

More facts and figures...if you care...

The "well 'ard" RIBsters covered:
28.5nm on Saturday
35nm on Sunday

(distance from the GPS therefore over ground... would be quite a bit longer through the water me thinks)

Average speed:
Sat 7.28knts
Sun 10.9knts

top-b's max speed over the two days: 43.5knts

I've uploaded 5 movies of black jack, i don't think they will stream very well, so right click and "save as" and play them local please!

http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3805.avi (3.7Mb)
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3807.avi (400k)
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3812.avi (700k)
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3814.avi (1.8Mb) -- this is by far the best!
http://dev.ets.biz/top-b/black-jack/mvi_3815.avi (1.6Mb)

For those who care i've uploaded our GPS tracks here:
One big sea, two small boats...

now lets spare a thought for others!!

hi all, fab pics and movies Dan, as always. just to make everyone aware unless you werent already, this was a report from the Daily Telegraph Newspaper on Monday morning after our class weekend.

I found it whilst looking for a piece of research on something else and thought it was wise to show everyone that someone upstairs among the clouds was looking down on us and kept us safe.

Apart from that, keep ribbing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Timmy
