David

All the photos can be viewed on Facebook under Lazyblueskiesphotography. There are several of T-Zoe, although only one that I can see of your boat (but see post #748 on page 75 above!).

Why all these low fuel figures coming from? My fuel meter said I used 87 litres. . That's not too good for a 150hp on a 65 mile trip

That's 'coz your prop was turning the opposite way to everyone else .If you'd gone around the island the other way, you'd have burnt less. It's physics.

I don't know about high tech fuel meters, I brimmed the tank before the trip and filled up again before next trip 53l. l'd been expecting to have used more.

In memory of Roy Bishop - Osprey Ribs.

We circumnavigated the Isle of Wight for Macmillan Cancer Support because we never forget those we lost & those who helped

I just wanted to say thanks you so much for all your support with this. When I first setup the Justgiving page I thought we would make about 1000 ish and I am absolutely over the moon with everybody's hard work and generosity.

Sadly a few couldn't make it at the last minute due to unavoidable problems however the turn out was fantastic at around 36 ish ribs and one jetski.

The conditions were ideal and I feel that the rolling start and the RV at Wootton Creek went really well. Our planned departure time was 10am but I couldn't start the cruise while we could still see ribs coming towards us from all directions.

Rounding No Mans Fort to pick up even more ribs was amazing as was (nicely) buzzing the small fishing boat off of Bembridge

Only one rib had a small problem and was helped by Trevor G in Blue Ray And the whole group waited for them to catch up while we grabbed some more time for photos.

Thank you to a few of the larger boats inc Neil Harvey who ran at the back of the group incase anyone got into trouble

The group started to split between the Needles and Yarmouth as people headed home, grabbed some lunch or had a floating picnic in the chop on the buoys outside Yarmouth.

I feel the whole day was a great success and thank you for your patience while the photographers took your photos, this will certainly help us to gain support with this cruise in the future

This was the second year we have done this cruise and I for one have learnt a great deal and I am already looking at running this cruise next year

Most importantly we have raised:

Total raised
5,412.00
Gift Aid
1,089.37
Cheques
456.20

Grand total = 6,957.57

Please note that I am not going to bed tonight until we have hit 7,000

This money has gone directly to Macmillan Cancer Support via our Ribnet Just giving page Rib. net is fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support and cheques made out to Macmillan that I have collected will be posted to them this week.

Macmillan Cancer Support's mission is to put a Macmillan Nurse with every Cancer patient at the point of diagnosis and I believe what we have accomplished will make a difference.

Every one of us had so many personal reasons for taking part and donating and I for one know that my Dad would have been very proud of what we have done.

My very best regards to you all.

Alex

No need to stay up late tonight.... I can commit to at least a further 80+gift aid already pledged from work colleagues and friends. I'm hoping to cadge a bit more and will submit it all in one lump sometime during the week.

You should feel very proud in not only organising such a great and well attended cruise, but also for being the motivation and influence for so much fund raising.

Bob
