Free trip to Norway!

It would help if you have a full driving licence and are able to share the driving, towing a 24' raceboat! Don't worry it will all be main road stuff - I'll do the tricky bits! Failing that someone who can read a map and pass a cold can of coke would be a help!

The ferries and fuel are paid for, and I am sorting out the costs of hotels at the moment, so if anyone is interested feel free to email me at cookee@bananasharkracing.com or use the private messenging system thingy.

The route is Harwich to the Hook of Holland on 22/8/03, drive up to Fredrikshavn for a ferry to Larvick on 24/8/03 and return 31/8/03 or 1/9/03 via the same route.

No pushing in the qeue and girls get priority!

That's a crackin' offer, Cookie. Unfortunately I'm back to work on the 18th or I'd be chappin' at your door!

Sorry

But I intend to be in Herm that weekend 29/8 - 1/9 hopefully with a fair few others.

Otherwise I would have love to come with you.

Cheers

Cookee, take some Scotch, cos you won't want to pay the local prices and you will make lots of friends with it.

Just being curious what you doin ? racing or delivering ?
Pete

So let me get this right ............ I got 4 replies so far from people who want to come but can't (not 1 girl in sight!) and 1 from Pete7 who wants to know why I'm going! ................ Ah well!

By the way we're going for the Class III 2 litre World Championships. It is a series of 3 races based at Tvedestrand - we're hoping for a bit of rough weather so as the only RIB racing we can beat some hard boats! We will be racing mostly against bat boats and some cats.

By the way I don't drink scotch but I will be taking some!

Hi

I hear you don't drink Scotch, but you do drink beer don't you.

If you do, then bring some, because they cost more than fuel

around 10 for a six pack

Are you planning any cruising around Denmark ?

Regards
Rene

Rene - I'll be bringing a bottle of Scotch for the locals! Not really a boat for cruising I'm afraid.

We'll be just passing through Denmark on our way North.
