Gilles, as JK said the rib is diesel powered so not an issue in Scotland. you will find petrol in most marinas in England. If your plans now only involve say coming to the South Coast then you will get petrol in the marinas.

Best to post your route and any local forum member will give you the best advice

Superb Andre. I'm assuming no tech problems and everything as it should be.

Great weather window for them.
Could i ask if a trailer is following on land just in case... Or if needed the rnli resources can come into play?

Are the various stations boats out to say hi at each stop?

No trailer so very much hope no tech problems but EP Barrus will assist if needed and the RNLI are keeping a watchful eye on their passages

Andre, apologies for the late posting of some pictures of the departure from Poole. Life got somewhat in the way!!
Anyway here are a few of the better ones, our boat camera is not the best at range.
We will be meeting up with the 999 Team on their return to Poole and will escort them back. I promise I will take my DSLR for some better shots.

As received from Nigel the Team leader

Had another really good day with time to visit Lundy. We encounted loads of marine wildlife including seals , puffins and over 100 short beaked dolphins who joined us for about 5 Nm . Amazing site.

Fuel consumption is good. We are burning approx 1.2 litres per Nm at RPM between 3000-3500

Day 1 was approx 158 Nm with 7 engine hours

Day 2 was approx 164 Nm with 10 engine hours

See Facebook page for short video
