Big Thanks

Had a great couple of days out on the water this weekend.
Big thanks to Brian for trip out on Cyanide and introducing me to Andy Micklewright and having a close look at his huge Redbay. It's one of the boats we usually see powering off in the distance across the bay but this time I got to have a close look as we chatted in the harbour, amazing machine is all I can say.

Got to chat for a while on the Resnova to Brian who told us all about how Ribnet has helped in the past with problems on boats and long distance cruising. David Hickman joined us for a while leaving the comfort and luxury of the charter boat he was on, he had some interesting stories from life out in the bay us occasional boaters never get to hear about.

Shame the Cowes Torquay race never happened and the weather couldn't make it's mind up between sun or rain but Brian showed me some great stuff around the area I've never seen before.
There is the lost village down by Start point a webcam on Berryhead, funny how you stay motoring in the same area for years but never see some stuff right in front of you all the time.
Cyanide is a fantastic boat Brian you should be very proud, thanks for a great weekend, I'll be your rope monkey any day, and next time I'll bring the dinner.

Well thank you, for your thanks Rupert. A pleasure to have you aboard and you are welcome any time.

On the Monday, I went along to Salcombe and met up with "Observer" (the Spring family) who were holidaying in the town.
Rupert did not come with me as, for some unaccountable reason, which I never really understood, he had to sell ice-creams all day.
Anyway, then on to Dartmouth where I met the Glatzels who had just come from Poole over a very choppy Lyme Bay.
Nice to see you Paul. Loved the colour of your boat!

Bugger missed out there, I still don't know what the entrance to Salcombe looks like before I go on my own.
