So who's going to be the first to post some I was there pictures ?

Must have been great to be part of the return flotilla

Don't know how long they will stay up for but all the arrival images from the webcam can be seen here

Well I was there, oustanding spectacle


The rib with all the metal work is Orca Seafaris 1, that runs eco tourism trips from Falmouth, it was also the boat that towed ellen back into Falmouth.

Here is one of many pictures

Dame Ellen MacArthur

I bet the atmosphere was great. I've just seen her home coming on the news and i really wished i could have been there.
She's a star.

Nice to see you got the B&Q side of the boat ..... she must have done some dictating to the media as they all seem to have got it right. The French film the other side .... which is blue.
