Had a good day out with Alan P today - meetings and SCO bsuiness all day.

I can proudly announce that the Waterguard pub has now started selling the SOC cocktail!!!

The radio interview went well, AP had about 4-5 minutes live chat!
He shoulb be just about turing into his drive now as he left Cardiff at 22:30! - Hope you made it back ok.

Re launching and recovering.

Plan A - and most connvenient, and suitable, is Penarth Marina as a base.
As mentioned the more boats come down, the better chance I have of doing a deal re prices. So..let me know.

OK, back to the main topic.

Do we know how many RIBs are due to attend so far?

Any further news on launching and recovering of RIBs (need to know what times on Sunday we can be recovered - to make arrangements for getting home etc)

Also, on a slightly negative note, if they are still intending to charge 40+ each way it will obviously affect the overall decision re attendance. May even launch in Bristol and cruise down.

Would apprecate regular updates on the situation please

At last count there was about 7 Ribs plus the Pride of Bristol.

Charges at Penarth Marina could and will change, once I have confirmed numbers - the more there are, the greater chance I have of getting a better deal!

Will give you a regular update every couple of days.
(hope that is ok)

WOW

Wow, coming up to the 2500 view marks. If each view had purchased a mile we would be nearly half way on the fuel cost's. or 2 miles pays the bill in full
