Thank you Bob

Thanks to Bob and the team,it was a frantic week getting the boat ready and it was very appreciated you accommodating me at the last minute.I had a fantastic first outing in the boat only wish we could have carried more fuel but there was no time to plumb this in (ran out on lap 4).Also a big thanks to 'AJ' standing in as my navigator-I might need someone for future events?All in All a great weekend well worth the effort-lets hope future events get the support to enable them to run as I'm definately up for it.Thanks Nic 2-36

Congrats to Vee and Gareth on their win. Very impressive run by Tony Toll and crew, Trevor must have those V8s in fine fettle to push that big Apache to the kind of speeds I saw on Yellowbrick. When any of the crews get chance could they give us a race rundown. Would have loved to of taken part.
See you guys at Cowes.

Hi Mike,
Trevor has put in a few hours over the winter and has the motors running very well, the weather was a little on the calm side for us but I reckon we gave Vee a good run for his money. Looking forward to Cowes, are you running Dry Martini?

97 mph in Poole Bay wasn't too bad for an old boat / driver!
