Yep he had to wait for us. I was pretty near the back of the he fleet for the start, and as soon as we went past he gave it the berries and accelerated behind us. I have him a friendly wave of thanks. I'll post a photo of it "hovering" waiting for us to go past.

I forget to mount my crystal ball on the console yesterday.

He wasn't on the beach, he was on the water making one hell of a noise whilst we cruised past.

If we had known we would have given way but how would we have known ? he could have called up on 16 as many of us had 16 on watch.

With regard to the Jurassic Cruise, if it is planned for September of later, I will offer up to 12 seats for a donation for each, for anyone who cant make it on their own RIB, with all money going to the Charity.
It's a bit of coast I know quite well .......

A Rack?
A Body?
A Ribtilla? - like that one

There may be different collective descriptions depending on which ribbers are involved

Yep agree, heard nothing on ch16.

Had a great day out yesterday, was great to meet some new faces!

Was shattered when I finally got back to London.

Didn't take my Avon Adventurer around this time, went instead on a friends Rib.

Video was a bit hit and miss, as there wasn't any mounts on the Rib that i went around on and I missed a section of the trip - my battery died without knowing me realizing, i eventually discovered this and changed the battery.

I did the same, they should make a loud beep when they run out of battery.

Nice video
