UK Wide but my focus is Scotland

Hi

Some of you will know that a good pal of mine Chris Pell is going round the UK in a Folding RIB ( FRIB) and we are wanting to know if anyone wants to join us on the Scottish Legs. For the rest of the UK please contact Chris Directly through his website

Please look at The Challenge - The Round Britain Endeavour

For anyone in Scotland legs 7 to 16 are the ones we would like your support on by joining us on the water.

Obviously all donation welcome

Sounds like a really good test for a folding RIB.
Best of British with the Challenge

I think some of the distances are out but I do hope some of you will join me on the water supporting this!

Some of the "routing" is seriously out too. I'm not meaning him any dis-service and wish him luck but I'd suggest he take the time to plot out those legs (exactly as described) on a map. If his route is credible people are more likely to accompany him. [I'd start by looking to see where the Crinan Canal is!]

Yep got to support everything Poly says. I question his route planning plus it's not round Britain as he's going thro Caledonia canal.

Hi

He is not actually going through it due to time Jambo. I am also not sure how far or when he will get up here but like all things for charity and boats we are happy to support it in any way we can.

I take it you will be joining though!

Dave if I am up at the time he passes happy to support. But I do think he has to amend his challenge route though.
I wish him every success in his endeavour.

Its a great thing to do, i think it will be fun and my comment sorry was aimed at Jambo. as I would really like to see his boat sitting next to our redbay (sold and going after the event and yes I am not happy) and seeing the difference . Jambo I am guessing knows the waters even better than me so that would be a nice plus as well. there will also be an arctic 22 with 150 twin etecs and I think a 7m coded humber.

last but not least it is always good to put names to faces! Having said that being a big fat guy if you want to see what I look like just look at the back end of a bus!
