Wonder if anyone would be interested in making a weekend of it and do some camping at the weekend as well, especially if people are travelling.

Last time I did this sort of thing was with the Solent skiers, and the night out afterwards was excellent.

Just a thought!

Any idea how much fuel he used? I have a similar set up (Zodiac 4M Rib) with a Yam 40hp 2 stroke... I'd love to go round on mine, but even with an aux fuel tank, would worry about having enough fuel (2 x 25l)

Cheers
Matt

Nothing to worry about, numerous palces to fill up in the Solent and as said before I'm sure the larger boats won't have any issues carrying a few extra cans - I certainly won't mind

More Great News! we have just had a 50 donation from Tony T

Total raised
395.00
Gift Aid
82.62

Grand Total = 477.62

Did you know that 100% of your donation goes straight to our charity now, so you don't have to wait to help our cause. The small admin charge comes out of the gift aid.

How Gift Aid works:


The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities or CASCs take your donation - which is money you've already paid tax on - and reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its 'gross' equivalent - the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.
Basic rate tax is 20 per cent, so this means that if you give 10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth 12.50 to the charity.

very happy to help, I've been lucky so far during my treatment not to have needed the help of the Macmillan Nurses, but very reassuring to know its there if needed my son Andrew & his mate Russ are doing the Mac4x4 Challenge which is another fund raising event for the Macmillan Nurses, obviously aimed at 4x4's, think they have raised around 700'ish so far
wish we were a bit closer to come and enjoy the fun, maybe next year when I'm back on my feet
