Was actually a great day out. Hard work in the new boat, everything is pretty far away from everything else, and I saw between 7 and 27 knots of breeze so had a bit going on at times, but a very enjoyable experience overall.

Have been meaning to post here and say thanks to the bbyc team for putting the day on for us. Sorry for not coming up the river but a beat back up the harbour on my own in 20 knots looked hard enough already without having a few beers and then having to push the tide as well.

Yeh - looks great Ken! Very aspirational - just needed to be holding a beer to cap or off nicely!

At least 3 so far - have got entries from Sledge, Voom and Dirty Deeds. But always welcome more :-)

Have heard back from 18 boats so far confirming they are coming, and there are about another 12 that have entered last year that im awaiting confirmation back from - so should be its usual massive event!!

tried desperately to get a pass out if only to provide somewhere for the others to sleep in comfort but regrettably the wife has made other plans.  The boys and I might follow down for a nosey though if the weather looks okay - still trying to get that one across the line!
