well gutted that im not coming out to play today had to shutdown our caravan for a few weeks as the site closed.. typical the weather is now great for boating!! So I have to settle for 2nd best at the london boat show.

Have a great day.. certainly looks like theres some nice conditions for it today!

Weather has been fan-bloody-tastic all day down South.

Booking it in the diary for next year.

What a great day. Fantastic to see such a turn out. Even the Solent put on its best behaviour for us today.
Thanks for being my chauffeur today Nigel, that is some combination of boat and engine you have there. The torque of that Yam is very impressive.
Hope you all made it back safe, look forward to seeing you out on the water some time soon.

Very nice turnout! Weather was a polar eclipse of what we've been used to of late and was a fantastic day, wasn't it?

Just sorry I couldn't make it. Our timings were just off, but thanks for the offer of the lift Nigel!

I think to say it was a successful nacho run would be an understatement!

Just home....great day, great weather, great boats , great people.

It was so good I forgot to pay my bar bill and had to head back from hurst to pay it.....a couple of phone pics....I'll aim to get footage edited tomorrow/Monday.

Can't wait to see stills from trimix and Neil's boats....

And it's amazing how much water you can get in a rib! :-) good outcome and still smiling so that's what matters....

Oh the Orange is the sand in cliff Not ask whispers ginger locks :-)
