I had in mind a time/fuel table, rather than a desert draining, gas guzzling, carb scoring - propelled by exhaust gasses - type thing!

Here are some suggestions

Needles - Cherbourg outer breakwater
Needles - St Peter Port
Needles - Braye
St Helier - St Peter Port
Gorey - Carteret
Round Isle of Wight
Round any Island you may wish to circumnavigate (my definition it would have to be habitated to avoid having too many little islands)

Great, is it done yet ?

Which Buzzi RIB do you mean? Thomas Vandammes's or Andy Mackateer's?

And who's recognising this record - RYA or UIM?

Record

Bass Boy

I remember when that record was set in the boston whaler etc.

Fabio did it in a 50ft Rib but I cant remember the name or what year it was set.

Unfortunately were no where fast enought to beat that.

Mike Deacon holds the record for round the islands etc, he did if i remember correctly, isle of wight, alderney, guernsey, jersey, Scilly Isles and back to Isle of Wight in one hit.

Cheers
Julian
