Huge thanks

I am back on dry land and able to respond myself now .The first post was done by my son .
A huge thanks to Tim for stepping in to the breach and to Simon aka Nasher who sorted out the calls from his car .
With regard to Toe in the Water this is a superb outfit and we had the privelege of working with them today on their training session , the injured guys perfomed without any concession to their injuries some of which are just unbelivedable . They are so positive in their approach to life it was trully humbling .
I am so pissed off that we have a breakdown and can't go around with them .
We will be supporting them in spirit and if any one is out there tomorrow give them a wave and cheer them on .
Two of the more insane ones are swimming from Southsea to the Forts in the evening too !This is after a 0500 start and sailing around the Island !Good luck to Anna and Matt on that one.
There are 3 boats out a Farr 65 called Juno with branding on the side an open 60 Toe in the Water and Artemis 1 which will also have branding on her hull.
Again thanks to all who responded to the initial cry for help ,as James said the POWER of RIBNET saved the day .

Looooooong Day to be on the helm 14 hours so abit knackered .

Lots of running around taking people here there and everywhere managed to get the guy who swam to the forts back to gunwharfe in time for his swim.

Think there was a party going on that we had to get the others back for not sure .

got home around 10.00
