Just put my name down on the list. I've also put out an all stations call on Facebook for passengers/crew to help out with the fuel bill so hopefully get a couple or 3 takers. Also posted a link to the justgiving page so fingers crossed a few people bung some $ in

That is going to cost you a lot at 5 per boat, but well worth it

Thanks for the encouraging post on FB, so far half a dozen or so of the more adventurous of my friends have mustered the energy to hit the like button A step in the right direction I spose...

Hi All,

Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it. I've hurt my back (herniated disc) and walking is a challenge let alone being in a rib. I wish you all well.

The is doubly bad as an old friend who had recently been given the all clear from cancer has just now been told it is back, is inoperable and it is only a matter of time so right now I have even more reason to thank the folks at Macmillan et al.

Hope the day goes well.

Ian
