We would all like to share in this breathtaking achievement.........
By the way who won??
so we have "specte racing "alias rupert bonham -smith
"rib babe " "alias rupert bonham -smith
who else I wonder?
Rupe, your great, great, great .great.great grandad would not be over enjoyed by the carrying ons of his 5th generation grand child - or was that a load of hype as well?
How about Verytricky? I joined at about the same time. I went on the rally. I had an EXCELLENT time. Ms Tricky navigated, I drove.
2 x 300 promax
We did not cross to Deauville, we crossed Ramsgate to Bologne
Crossing was about 25 minutes for myself.
Sea state 1 to 2.
First boat 'home' in Deuville was myself - but it is not a race, it is a rally. The event is the object, not the placings. I received no prize or mention for finishing first.
As for the 'chelsea babe' this could have been one of several girls who came accross in some ribs. They proberbly would not know what an SSR is, or the actual route, or their speed. The certainly would not know the sea state!
But they damn well enjoyed themselves. The spirit amongst the group was very very excellent. I will definately do this event next year, as will others who 'almost' did it this year..
