Great day was had Catweazle. Thanks for the vids; does make up for the fact the 'camera boat' failed after 20 mins..

By the way, we're doing an Itchen and Scratchin' run on the 9th April, with a slip at Crosshouse then a run to the Jolly Sailor (Burseldon) for lunch, with more playing pm. Attendees thus far are a 50s Albatross Continental, '68 Broom V1400, '59 Lone Star, Stapley Ski Hawk, Driver 440 and 80s Fletcher or 60's Archway Special. Like-minded welcome to join in, there'll be seats available, just me know..

p.s T15, sorry won't make it over, hope to share a pint at Cardiff!
