Thanks Iain,

I have deployed yachts as spotters! and this year we have Air support from SKYwatch - we will have 1 or 2 planes at 1000 feet.

Last year i think 27K raised!

Thanks

Thanks to All who helped today. In RIB.net case thank you Neil ( polwart) ! Nice to catch up again, hope you enjoyed the day.

Your crew has just signed up to Powerboat 2 Course at the club at end of August, and the crew on my boat has signed up for course too, the black rib was my RIB btw!

Over 100 swimmers, 2 retirements and loadsa fun - new experence dealling with plane spotters ! I had 3 radios and mobile phone at one point!

The Martin (my boat skipper) evicted the CAT that was squatting on the mooring, by diving under it and removing the tangled rope.

Now planning next years , hopefully the seas will be calmer..

regards

Scott
