I plan to go down to the Camber for about 9.30 so I can give a hand with launching if anyone wants it, and then cadge a ride with someone.

I'll be bringing the latest bit of RIBnet kit -- a laser speed gun! So we can do some speed tests for anyone who is interested (and see just how fast those ferries actually go on the way out of the harbour!)

Any chance of "borrowing" that bit of kit for one of my duties, John - could have some sport with that.

BTW if you check out http://www.aislive.com/InfluxPortal/...outh%20Harbour you can get real time info from them boats fitted with AIS. The odd transgressor does exceed 10knts

Hi everyone - have only just got onto your forum and have rapidly sped through all the posts regarding your spin for this weekend.....

WOW - are my first thoughts, what an absolutely great bunch of people. Up until now, i have only really been keen on the PWC front, but now i have a rib-tec 5.3m, decided to come and see what the scene is like on here.

I have a couple of burning questions with regard to tomorrow / weekend - is the event still open to late entrants and would there be an accommodating requirement OR a dislike to a responsible PWC user coming along with you all and being some kind of marshal/safety aspect of the trip aswell ?
The PWC is a 4-stroke capable of 45 knots and i am reasonably happy up to a force 7.

I am offering this service just to be a part of this excellent event and am open to any suggestions !

(uh-oh, somehow think i may have left myself open for this one )

Please let me know - thankyou, John.

mobile: 07970 344610.
