An idiot! When did I get the promotion?
That's the trouble with idiots, they never know when they're beaten and I guess we'll never know how much cash the competitors
participants would have had to shell out to motor around the UK together quickly. Anyway, cheer up Mike - it may seem to be a dead horse at the moment but your track record suggests that you'll flog another couple before you finally call it quits.
I'll expand of my initial comment and go out on a limb by saying that in this age, the idea of a few chaps taking boats around the UK fails to release the adrenalin. When people are parachuting from space, wing suiting from mountains, ballooning across oceans and sailing over them as fast as powerboats, a "round something" extravaganza is a bit pedestrian. I'd suggest that you're trying to relive your glory days but no-one else is buying in - literally.
