If you are short of a driver, and need a commercially endorsed Advanced Powerboat ticket (and Coastal Skipper commercially endorsed as well) then give me a shout - I'm free towards the end of the month and it sounds interesting...

Hi Tim,

Just to inform you, as i am sure you know, that any boats that are involved in a cross channel swim must be registered and approved by the cross channel swimming association. Not just coded, as i found out...

See ya
Stuart

Hi Stuart
Yup have the heads up on the rules we have lost our slot due to the recent weather so we are now at the back of the queue hence trying to source the boats then get them approved by the assoc proving very hard .
