£900 seems a lot but then again, it is not a usual rally.
Deauville is on the North Coast of France and for a three day long rally that includes parties and hotel stays as part of the whole event, it is a lot more than a map for directions and also a couple of expensive looking stickers.
I am a friend of the organisers and I would like to re-itierate and confirm that Rupert Bonham-Smith has nothing to do with the rally at all, since the organiser has felt that he is a somewhat destrcutive liability. The organisation of the rally is being done by Auracle and he is fully aware and pro-actively taking every step to ensure the efficient running of the rally.
I think that if you go to www.deauvillerally.com
it will explain the true nature of the rally. I think that there are a few people that might be interested in this rally, and I am very keen to go, and strongly believe that there are more people that would be interested if they were fully informed
well, this finishes my virgin posting on rib.net forum and it seems that a lot of the banter is akin to a children's playground with some of the comments on other 'threads.' But then again, I am sure that there are a lot of people that are not too pleased with some members of the boating community...
