My Pleasure II & others

Hi,

For various reasons I am trying to make contact with some of these people, and especially those who run the "My Pleasure II" Osprey RIB in marathon racing (pic attached), so if anyone could put me in touch with a member of the team it would be much appreciated.

I was also wondering if anyone on here knew any of the men (and woman!) who attempted to circumnavigate Britain 11 years ago again in an Osprey and could put me in touch . An old website with a list of names can be found here.

Much obliged if anyone can be of help,
Oliver

My Pleasure II is run by a guy called Gordon. If you call Gareth at Drivers Dryberthing, he might be able to put you in touch.

Good of Rock Oil to donate a whole 5 gals of oil, enough to cover one leg.

Yes it did, I did Bangor to Oban and then through the canal to Inverness, the best bit was cruising through the Lochs with all of the race boats going as fast as they wanted - Gordon got a good mention in Sports Boat and RIB magazine for the trouble!
