Hi All

So glad you all had a great day and so sorry we missed catching up with you all - our day was .....well a total and utter disaster that resulted in having to be towed back to Itchener

Will post in the main RIB section rather than spoil things here for what was clearly a festive day - we did make it as far as the anchored container ship (Lyns???) before turning for home

We've learnt a lot - at the expense of some pride and hope we can catch up with you all in the New Year.

Hightower - we did try ringing you but no luck

Chris - thanks for organising and apologies for letting you down

J

Thanks for a great day folks. Some pictures I managed to grab.

Chris you'r a Star, you can organise something like this again any time!! See the link for a video I have managed cobble together, no music though, if anyone knows a quick and easy way to get copyright free music please let me know.

Not sure I felt that lucky on the way back to Poole Mike

Well done everyone for turning out it was good fun and I am waiting for a picture from Father Avocetmas that should sum up the day nicely.
