We will be over in Cowes today visiting Sea Safe Systems they are making us some cool jackets (they have the lifejacket lung built in and an EPIRB!)

Will give Paul a ring to possibly meet up.

For anyone that couldn't make it yesterday here are a few piccies that will give you a flava of the day. Some of the star attraction and some of the other nice ribs and boats that were out and about. Hover over the thumbs for who/what they are.
A thousand thanks to Paul Jackeen for the lift and also to Tony in Xanthus for a go in yer cracking boat.

Back-up? Possibly one of the highest points available if she lost her mast..

Like the shot of Tony in front of B&Q, in the background you can clearly see that little "gimball" that the mast sits on. How many Tonnes of load does it support? I seem to remember 50ish. Seems unbelivable!!

Well I hope you didn't bump into B&Q too many times when giving your advice. Where you on TV last night?

Unfortunately not Andy.. Guess the local news networks couldn't afford helicopters, or their own cameraman onboard, both Meridian and the Beeb had the same onboard coverage, prolly purchased from the cameraman in one of Robin's piccy's..

It was moi Robin, just seconds before she got the restraining order.. The second piccy in the second set shows me leaving, (on the left), just before she served the aforementioned order..
