That's Paul's toy Andy ! He likes playing at being qhm

Bacon sarnie on order for 11th Pete

So since Pompey is generally closed on 28th we may as well be on the water

Some VIPs of the Irish Ocean Youth Saily Trust will be testing their sealegs on Merlin. If we can get them out of the nearest Bar.

You could well be right Martin and I suspect there could be times when I wish I was watching it on there especially at 0100 on the 29th which is when my duty is due to finish.

We are camping and launching at Calshot Monday through till Friday - Where would be the best vantage point to see the review and Fireworks? Have people booked space to moor or is it a first come first served situation? I have all the instructions etc and even bought a flag?
