Hi Steve

I'll get plenty of shots and post a few on here. Brambles, do you mean you'll be going down to Plymouth on Saturday afternoon?

Hi,

We are staying in Dartmouth, because we thought it would be difficult to find accomodation in Plymouth on Saturday night. The boats should be there by about 6pm.

Unfortunately due to work commitments on Saturday I will probably have to get the train & meet them in Dartmouth.

Surprisingly, I had no problem find accomodation at all, on the hoe itself, in one of the blue rinse B&B's.

Ribraff, what boat will you be on? We will keep an eye out for you.

Matt, will you be out on your boat?

If anyone else is on the water on Sat/Sun please come over & say hello - we will have a grey Scorpion & a yellow Revenger.

My girlfriend and i will be in my boat, a 6m Shakespeare with blue and white 2 tone tubes and Olmec Tubing written down the side. I'll look out for you

We're staying in Plymouth on saturday night as there is a party in the evening, we managed to get a room at the New continental, apparently there's a wedding on so it might be a bit noisy but we got a good deal!
