I would suggest getting the beer/s from him first - then try for the flag.

They are laughing and celebrating with a lot of beer

Is there any way you can get some picture of the beer party?
I'm joking ..... I'd like to say Many Thanks to the Italians guys for give to us the opportunity to become more visible outside countries.

This is not a simple Raid..... It is something special just For the Brave !

In order to check up everithing.


These are the locations of the next few days if the the weather is good .....

Camaret SUR MER - GUERNSEY 140
GUERNSEY - DOVER 180
DOVER - AMSTERDAM 160

Are they still stopping at Dover? - If so what day and I will pop along and say Hi.

Their plan was to spend Saturday in the marina, doing some servicing and loading up with petrol, then head straight for Amsterdam on Sunday.

Looks like the wind is dropping so I reckon they will probably go for it.

Thanks Guys Thanks John.
This adventure is getting double
On the one hand there is the great Sergio navigation
Secondly there is the power of real-time communication forums.
Once these things were unthinkable.
When I heard John on the phone laughing I realized that it is as if I knew him already.
Thousands of miles away, but we can drink beer together by the RIBNET

Now I know that there are friends beyond the ocean

thanks for these beautiful pictures
Marco

PS: I will ensure that come here to thank all

You will not believe
but I have not met in person Sergio
because he lives in Sicily and I in Verona (1300 km)
only forum and telephone ......
He has promised that at the end of the raid we have to drink a beer together.


Kennet has already drunk
