I'll be there, coming up on the Friday, launching Friday tea time hopefully for a run about then leaving the rib on a mooring whilst jumping into the local travel lodge.

Not too knackering I hope? Need to be in Poole 0800 Sunday as safety officer for the Round Brownsea Island Swim

I will be there, heading down Friday - I aim to arrive at the camp site mid afternoon to get setup, boat in and crack open a few beers.

Last year was my first, and Saturday is a very long day - but loads of fun, and boating through London at stupid O'clock in the morning when its still dark was very impressive.

Is that the Sea Scouts place?

See you there if it is, By 6PM on Friday I hope to have the boat in the water, a beer in my hand, and the BBQ lit!

I launched last year at River Lane, and I plan on doing the same again this year.

They have changed boatlaunch so I cant copy the link, but its the one by the sea scouts and the German school.

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.44.../data=!3m1!1e3


The only bit im unsure of is the storage place for the trailers - last year I followed Tony to the storage field, so hopefully that information will come out soon from NER.
