Packed programme - V24 and all sorts!

Anyone else going?

We're tentatively planning to go by sea (about 150miles from our base in Southampton) as the weather is looking good. Departing Friday. Anyone else up for the trip?

Funny my phone has indeed rung.
Down side is due to the lateness I am unbale to borrow a boat as i did last year.

So it looks like I will just be another spectator this year!

You'd be very welcome on Blue Ice. After travelling round on Friday, I wouldn't mind staying on dry land while the racing is on!

Not sure yet when we'll arrive - got to look at tides and stuff!

Hmmm! Looks like Richard'll be taking Monday off as well as Friday! And I'll be getting 'Jockey seat bum'!

Edit: actually don't think we'll make it across the channel as we'll be doing safety boat for the racing.

As above plus

She is no not only wanting to watch the fireworks but keeps asking if Cookee is racing and can we see him race!!

Yes Jon - you can tell your daughter we'll be there - I suspect it's the fact that she has a couple of BananaShark stickers that did it! You can tell her that when her dad sorts out a handset VHF I'll see if I can get her a Stainless steel BananaShark keyring as well! Bringing the leisure boat as well by the way!

Cookee

She will be made up!
She love the lesiure boat, do you need a driver or crew for it?
I think she may have a bit of a wait for the keyring then unless her dad buys her one!!

Do you do the Ribnet polo's in kids sizes?

Regards

We have a driver and crew, but if you speak to Kevin nicely you might be able to convince him of the need for a radio operator!

Sorry the keyrings are not for sale - but they are free with every boat!

Ribnet Polos are only in adult sizes, but they are available to special order - we can discuss the terms at the weekend! They can be personalised as well for a meagre extra sum!
