I don't want to be the only one getting left behind.

If you have decided on the 29th at Lymington you may find it a bit busy as BIBOA are holding the annual Rib (powerboat) race that day, it's based in the Royal Lymington Yacht Club next to the slipway, I'm sure you would all be welcome, and they are always looking for safety boats, after racing you have the prizegiving and a curry dinner in the club, it a great event.
