Not me! I think I'll wait and see how things turn out this year, I may be a little busy preparing something for the Boat show, as well as other work, so now the racing is over for the year it's time to get back to earning some money!

Seen in a cafe on the way home from Cowes ................

This isn't meant to be a non-profit making organisation - it just turned out that way!

as for becoming a silver member, I am not organising the rally so I get no benefit for it at all, try the rally organiser or Mr. Bonham Smith.
Some people just dont read these threads properly.

I repeat I am nothing to do with the organisation of this rally merely a humble competitor.

Try Ed Balme or the very sexy Alicia who works in his office. However as people have made it clear on previous threads you guys just arnt interested in this over priced rubbish so I'm not sure Balme will be in a rush to become a rib.net trade member unless the event changes the minds of many of the doubting Thomas'.

As far as the weather goes Friday and Saturday are going to be a scorchio so if any of you nerds have a last minute change of mind then now is a good time to convert to the dark side!

I think the prize money kitty is about 2800 but you will have to check with the organisers for the latest figures.

There is also a fairly fancy Silver cup donated by Sir Dai Llewllyn. I beleive he got his hands on it in Mustique when Princess Margaret wasnt looking!

I disagree. There has been no bad or abusive language, just a little niggling...each side whether pro or anti the rally has given as good as they they get, and this free speech on these forums is very healthy.


The Rally starts on Friday... by curtailing this thread or the contributors to it now would stop the story before it reaches it's climax, and hopefully some photos.

I for one have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread.

For nerd read Traffic Warden

Polar Bear, when I mean nerd I refer to the people who criticise anything and everything and pick holes in threads like it is some big ball of emental cheese.

It does not refer to IT people suc as yourself as LOPC member AkA Groper might have insinuated in previous posts!

If you are looking for JK to wheel the axe then I beleive there is no better candidate than our man from Brussels - EUPA!

One way they could get across the channel I suppose

So I will ask for a second time, how many boats are taking part in this race? or is that a secret ?

Top secret

When invading foreign shores its best not to let them know exactly how many of you there are!

Also if any boats do sink or go astray it will be easier for Balme to hoodwink the intense media coverage!
