I watched the K777 do its first run around the safety course and it certainly stopped everyone doing what they were doing! It was almost dark and despite blowing a lot of steam it was spectacular! I spoke to Jim in the pub later and he said that they had a long way to go and it wasn't easy to get it going but they are hoping to make 100mph this week.

We managed to get up to coniston for yesterday afternoon to watch a few boats do their runs , Unfortunatley we didnt see your boat anywhere "cookee" , Had you already left ?.

We did however get to see K777 do another run from outside the "Bluebird Cafe" , This time he managed a short run with a little more power.

I managed another short video (Please excuse the quality) , It was taken off my Mobile.
