Thank you all again, we counted 59 boats in one spot but apparently 65 went round today

The Macmillan people loved it, they said it was the best day ever!!!

Lots to do now before home time so looking forward to the pics.

There was not reporter this year so I hope you all contact your local newspaper and tell them what you have done. I'm sure there will be a few pics of you on here soon!!! We better start a media thread with all these newspaper clipping we have.

Well done everyone!!!

Save drive home everyone

In the end I did come around with you and it was a great day, I used just under 30 litres of fuel with our 70 Yamaha 4 stroke.
I took plenty of photos, I didn't get many under way as I was by myself. Feel free to download and use any of my photos as you wish.
