Cookee, would have liked to have tagged along as we have the 8m Extreme RIB in the UK, but it is still in need need of a counter rotating surface piercing prop.

Bit of an update - I have been keeping the Google Map up to date with venues and now the mileages between venues.

We are auctioning the spare seat for each leg of the trip on Ebay and I have already had bids on several legs. It's all for a good cause and 100% of the money will reach the Children's Hospices. Either type in BananaShark to Ebay to see all of the legs or go to the BananaShark Facebook page to see them all listed, I will be putting the items up on our website as well this morning. Here is probably the most spectacular leg through the Caledonian canal Ebay link but we already have one bid!

Hi Cookee. I would be very keen to bid for a leg, dates dont work well for me, is there any chance of a seat on the 1st day Salcombe to Newlyn Leg as 21st June would work well for me? Thanks

I'm sorry that didn't make it on to Ebay but it's already taken.

The bids are coming in now and the prices are going up - thanks to everyone that's had a bid!

The Salcombe leg is now available and on Ebay - it's the first leg of the Round Britain trip and at under 90 miles will be an "Easy" day assuming the weather plays ball! As a Ribnet offer if one of the Cornish lot want a bid I'll get picked you up from Totnes station if you want to get the train up from the other side of the border! Ebay linky
