Good day planned tomorrow, and hopefully some more cash collected for charity.

Good time to remember it is wise to have a passage plan and dont rely on everyone else to be right, shallows! rocks! wrecks! Look after yourselves and see you all tomorrow

Kit ready. .plans made. .weather sorted.. see everyone at Calshot or in the Solent.

Amazing work by Whisper to generate the money for such a good cause. Am sure it will increase in the next week.

He may be a ginger ribnobber but top work all ways round.

I'll be departing Portsmouth at about 09:15/09:30 hrs if any one one else would like to meet up by the green lightship by the small boat channel. Should be meeting with Swedishjedi and Bucksribster from Portsmouth Camber.

Don't forget to bring your cameras guys

Good luck Chris and thank you for your generous donation and hard work!

I know how you feel! I was well dodgy yesterday but after feeding myself with some tablets I'm feeling much better.

A message for us all...

I sent a text to Isabel Bishop (Roy's amazing Wife) today, to let her know how well this has gone and asked her if she had a message for us. She texted me back from Australia to say the following...

In Australia with son and his family, new baby arrived on Wednesday. Really appreciate what you are doing, Hope you all have a fantastic trip - Roy would have loved to be out there with you. For everyone who knew him just remember him and how he was the best, kindest and most courageous man and how we were all so lucky to have known him. Have a great trip - and thanks. Isabel.

Well done all

and to Whisper.....

See you all tomorrow.

Chris.

I've already secured 2 soft toy foxes to hang off the A-frame for a suitable pic. Any more foxes to make him pay more would be appreciated (only need a photo not permanent possession!).
I've found another fox for your photo. Hope to pass it across tomorrow.

We have had lots more donations today but I am unable to give you any details as I only have my mobile phone with me. However I will make sure that every donation makes it on to this thread.

Thank you all for all your hard work and generosity and I will see you at the RV tomorrow.

Hope you all enjoy the cruise!

My very best to you all.

Alex
