This is what I have been waiting for, it's going to be a classic. A straight fight between Dean & Vee over long distance. Who is going to be the 1st boat home?

Certainly, it will be great to see Going Lean going for honours at the Skagerak Across.

As for for Vee?

I think the boat will stay in Southampton.

I wouldn't jump to conclusions, Mike. There are a couple of contenders that may spoil the fun. I'll be there so will try to post some pictures as the boats pass.

BTW, there was a nice article in a local paper yesterday about Dean and how he & his team are coming to Tvedestrand by boat. Kudos, Mr. Gibbs.

Dean first to Denmark at 47 minutes. A few minutes ahead of record.

A very well deserved win for Dean & Co. Just spoke to the guys in the Goldfish and they had a fantastic run, and came in 10 minutes behind GoingLean. A lot of spectators and a very succesful event.
