Wonderful day.......but I'm shattered now.!!


Burned exactly 25l from River Hamble to The Needles (changed fuel tank)and approx 15l from there back to a River Hamble.

2 up in a Sr4 with a 50hp 2st.

Took some Go-Pro footage, but so far it's not looking too good. Dodgy cameraman.!!

What a great day on the water

Finally home, car unpacked, kit away & boat washed down
Now for something to eat and a well deserved beer.

Conditions were fantastic - how did you organise the weather Alex?- and great to see so many boats out, as well as catching up with old friends & meeting new ones.

Looking forward to the pics.

Now......what's the date for 2015????

just a 20 second clip from my Gopro
There is about an hour plus from the front of my boat at 28 knots.
I will try to edit the more interesting bits !

Was good to see that some of the people who for me, previously only existed as names on Rib.net turned out to be A1 lovely people.
It was great to meet everyone.
Whisper - thanks for your efforts in organising.
(Makes me think we need a Cruise for the Northern Ribnetters)
