Has far as I can understand it seems you didn't read what Auracle wrote.

Whether its good value or not is upto the individual. But as Auracle seems to be this weeks victim I guess everyone should carry on .

Personally if I was going to enter I would look into the questions raised about who was running it, as there seems to be some issues. But the bloke seems happy to reply on this forum when he doesn't need to do. If there were issues then all he needed to do was not reply and a bunch of people who weren't going to enter would soon forget about him.

Cheers

Mark

Deauville Rally

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...

No further information?

The website is lacking real info.

Where are the refuel stops?

The website says 200 miles, yet it works out at about 270 miles!

There is no 'notice to mariners' on the PLA website about 30 race boats leaving Tower Bridge on the 3rd!
