Had a fabulous weekend in excellent company. Will add our full match report after the Capitaine!!!!The James Bond twist at the end added to the adrenaline of it all!!!!

Just in, grabbing grub and wanted to say thank you most sincerely to Nauti and Sarah for inviting us along and congratulations to them, Andre & co on such an excellent RIB.

A-mazing

Been following this one from the beginning. I'm pleased everyone made it back OK (not really in dought, by the experience of the crew), must have been an epic first Voyage for you Richard, particulaly the police escort all the way home (did customs really want you to pay VAT for all the fuel you bought to the UK ). I'll look forward to your photo's and account of how things went and to Christening the New arrival to the Dump tomorrow.

Nice one,

We assume that the skipper followed procedure by contacting the destined harbour authority prior to crossing the 3 mile limit and announced their point of arrival and ETA. and requested that customs be notified.

As we are in the European Union and there is a free movement of goods between member states there is no need to notify the Customs Authorities of such. However what I should have done and take full responsibilty for this :

I DID NOT MAKE A PASSAGE PLAN AND NOTIFY DOVER COAST GUARDS

a lesson for us should we make a similar delivery in the future
also should any of you guys decide to go to France for the weekend ect then you should log a passage plan .

Saturday 11th November

07.00 Kathleen, Paul & Myself left Port Solent and collected Andre & Simon Everett on route for Dover. Had a very pleasant trip over to Calais, where our transport to the Marina was waiting and my new Rib . The back of the lorry was very comfortable, nothing suspicious at all with 4 blokes bundleing into the back of a lorry at the Port with a 9m Rib with 550hp on the back!! .

Anyway we eventually found the entrance to the Marina, and the crane guy to lift the Rib off the trailer. Timings were very tight as we arrived it was about 4pm and the marina shut at 5pm leaving us 1 hr to get the Rib inflated, craned off and fuelled. Not bad only 40 for the use of the crane, mind you I did just after put 400 litres of fuel on board at a lovely 85p/litre not bad for a marina.

The Rib was tied up ready for our departure at 07.00hrs on Sunday Morning. I will just quickly add, Calais is a pain in the arse Marina, we were restricted by the tides and the opening of the road bridge which had a last opening at 07.17 on the Sunday then again at 15.30 in the afternoon.

Then a lovely evening followed in the hotel restaurant, ready for the trip back the next day.
