Your CAPS LOCK key seems to be stuck!

Please don't type in all capitals -- it's the internet equivalent of shouting

Thanks!
John

WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND - Ooops Sorry, Waht a great weekend!!!!

The weather was great - much better than I was expecting for the end of September

Launched at Brixham - Large 400 space car park just over the road from the slipway - didn't find this last time and so thought there was only limited parking - I'll send Geoff an E-mail update for Boatlaunch....

Saturday - toured Torbay and had lunch at anchor off Oddicombe beech, then round to Dartmouth.

Stayed at the Ros Nova Inn in Dartmouth - I'll start a new thread tomorrow....

Today, Sunday, back to Torbay and after a phone call with Brian managed to track down Mike and Di on Magallen Alpha and met them at Berry Head and escorted a Yacht in the "Around Alone" yacht race into Brixham at the end of the first leg

Cath made me laugh when she asked "Is he stopping to refuel" - I've now explained what the sails are for

Anyway - its getting late.... The pics are all on www.ribpanther.co.uk - including some of Magallen Alpha

Jools (+ Cath)

jools,

As I saw at your web site, you must spend a LOT of time updating it with the new log and photos. Could you please start updating mine as well ?

Jools, good to me you and Cath. Nice, well-found boat you've got.

Di and I are now back from Brixham - left this morning on a flat sea with viz down to a couple of hundred yards so saw nothing of land until we passed the Eddystone light.

Next bit of the coast we came across was St Anthony's head and that was home. This run was done at a fair pace for our heavy ol' bus and we got back in 2.5 hours.

Now I've found my camera with the missing shots of the final phase of the installment and the road test, I really will find time to post New Guts Part 7.

I promise....

If my grasp of geography and maths is anywhere near correct that means that you were making / sustaining 30kts or so Mike?
Welcome to the high speed club!

Look forward to new guts part #7.

Alan.

PS. Stumbled across "Sailings Everest", film about the last Around Alone the other night on Sat TV. Featuring a certain M Garside looking rather the worse for wear somewhere off Cape Horn and wondering whether his mast was going to stay up. Single handed sailors? Mad as hatters the bunch of 'em!

Ged - as for the Ros Nova - excellent - I'm just about to start a new thread...
Didn't see the message about the Gunfield until we got back home - I'll have to try that next time
