Thanks, I have cut down the whole trip down to 15 minutes but being high quality it is taking its time to upload.

Using my phones GPS I mapped the route we took

And here's the picture I took after you dropped me off in Cowes

That Tecnohull looked absolutely fabulous today, and flies, as did that lovely Scorpion Sting - motivation to start saving !

Alex, many thanks for organising such a great trip, you've done an outstanding job getting so many together for this cause.

Just got home & snugged Aquahound - and two very tired Aquapups - down for the night.

Fantastic day, we have never done such a long / intrepid trip, so really good to have done it.

Also great to see so many boats, and meet fellow ribnetters.

There will be more cash coming from from pledges I have had and once I've hawked the photos (especially of the fox) round at work.

I think Mrs T may make a large donation if the photos of her pizza eating habits can be bought before being posted!
Now finally for a well deserved G&T.

Hi you lot! What a great day!

Picked up another 96 from Chris Moody for helming all those boats, so thank you all

Picked up 50 at the needles from James on the yellow Scorpion

Landlords mother law just gave me a tenner for bringing Peter M around

Grand total so far is 5,092.37 and it's not over yet!
