Good site but quite a few boats go missing from there...

Now that statement has found my dark side. Don't really know about the die hards, but we could be propping up the bar in the pub long before they arrive

Ah it's this thread ! Um - I guess if I haven't broken the beast or scared myself too much by October I could give this cruising thing a go. Is it likely to involve ridiciulous amounts of fuel ? I haven't done enough to have started the maths for all that yet.

A weekend with a load of old Northern men is a little worrying, but I'm sure it will be worth it ! I'll have a look at some of the links and try to find a tent or something.

Oops sorry didn't mean to be ageist - I'm 28 after all so not exactly a spring chicken ! It must be the way you sound so experienced and authoritative that I foolishly interpreted as a sign of maturity.

Is that better, or am I still in trouble / owing people pints ?!
