The fireworks very nearly didnt happen this year. the local police were throwing their toys out the pram cos they had to police so many people and were demanding that they recover the cost direct from sponsors!
that and the tender for the show was late being decided!
was a good night. show was much shorter than last year i thought but the final bit was amazing!
only saw one little problem when a cobra came past us and picked up another boats anchor line around his prop. nothing major tho.
i hope everyone else got back safe also, we left around 23:30 and there was still plenty of people around.
what did nark me a little, at 23:45 the hamble harbour master was out in the channel but the cardinal marker with no lights at all. them being out is good but with no lights on is just plain dangerous in my view!
