HELP! Lost Keys at Castletown!

I know it's a long shot, but was anyone at Portland / Castletown today and found / handed in some keys? A bunch with a big Olympic Mascot keyring.

Unfortunately my trailer has a wheel clamp locked and I can't get the boat out of the water tonight without it!

07595 346216 if anyone heard anything..

thanks
Phil

To be honest I only use mine because the insurance stipulates it, most of them are crap.

Indeed - easier way to get it off is just to drop off with it on. Most will come off pretty easily.
