Isle of Man - Honda

Anyone going?

Anyone have any news on the event - Ana and I may go this weekend to see what all the fuss is about the Honda boats.

Can you fly to the Isle of Man?

Will there be a photographer there?

So, how do you go there? Fly? Swim? Drive?

What time are the races?

Yes, you can fly direct to the Isle of Mann from Southampton or if you want a cheaper option you can fly to the isle of mann via Manchester.

I always fly over for the TT.

Actually I have 'lost' the drive that was going to happen. As I have a Honda 225 racing licence, I was going to drive one of the boats on the weekend ( as a favour for a friend ), with Ana as navigator, but it has fallen through

So I will not be getting wet on the weekend.
