A Non RIB shot but the ship just impressed me with its sheer size and serenity as it made its way out of the Solent.

Evolution is currently out on Charter with Davies Coaching Ltd, so will be a. n. other! It's on charter to Offshore Challenges Group (One of Dame Ellen's company), and I know they're using it as a support boat for their brand spanking new IMOCA Open 60, could it have been that you saw?

Aside from that, nice pics. I've been out skippering saily boats the past few days, and it's been a little fresh, hope you've stayed relatively dry!

James,

Haven't got wet from the boats. Just driven through a shower at 40 mph which hurt because all the crew had my hats and gloves so I was ducking behind the windscreen which wasn't totally effective.


As regards the boat Evolution was towing. Yes it looked new and fast. And I knew it was evolution form the black tubes and white engine. Pretty distinctive in the RIB World of the Solent.

PS. Are we getting your camping skills on the 7th or are you working ?

Nick.
