I'm not on the Folly food list, so will be hunting for scraps falling off the table. I need to lose a few pounds anyway.
As PeterM said, I have couple of meals going spare. One soup/beef and one mushroom/beef if you are interested.

All good from the Poole end.
We have one to pick up at Calshot when we come round, but still planning on being by the Brambles around 11.30

We were having a bit of trouble the boat electrics so decided to quit while we were ahead and head back from Cowes.

Sorry not to make it to the Folly and meet everyone properly. Hope you all had a good lunch - we ended up in the Jolly Sailor at Bursledon which was very good indeed!

Home safe . Thanks to all for making it and apologies that I felt the Folly let themselves and us down on service levels today........and then they sort of lost the plot when it came to paying and made me feel like we were all about to skip the country etc etc ...I leave it at that.

Anyhow I counted 19 boats in total . I tried to do a head count but kept getting interrupted - so gave up . Very very few empty seats which is always a good sign.

Considering the potential weather I felt it was a result - didn't get wet at all - of course down to Steves helming I'm sure.....

Pulled alongside just as total darkness fell...

Again huge thats to everyone for making a good day of it. If I didn't get round to say hi and do the social bit apologies ..some people I meant to talk to but for some reason it didnt happen .

Cat herding 2012 complete for me - so any dates for 2013 in the diary yet ?

I think the Nacho run was mentioned as 6th Jan ?..........................

Once again a huge thank you to Pete for doing the organisation.

It was great to catch up with so many friends, a real pleasure to see Biff and his good wife and to put more faces to names/voices (Ian & Andy).

Some pics we grabbed

Steve

PS Sad to see JK had problems, as that "little" Parker looked a great boat rode the conditions very well
