What kind of facilities do you want?

You can stop on the beach and be close to our toilet and showers and the Marina Boat Club

I'm on this time Jono, rib is repaired and prepared to get wet again.
Let's see if I can win Last Boat back award for the second year running!

Will there be a safety boat backing up the stragglers?
