Volvo RTW race goings on - Saturday.

Anybody planning to go down to Portsmouth Historic dockyard on Saturday?
Should be lots of interesting stuff going on.

The youngest of my two lads is playing his Trumpet in the Portsmouth Grammar Junior School Brass band at 13:00 and 14:00, so I'd steer clear of the afternoon if I was you

We will probably go out to welcome Dee Caffari and the leading Volvo boat in.

Andy,

I think that is the start of the final leg of the race. We are marshalling that afternoon/evening - anyone else doing the same?
