Except maybe London MonteCarlo!!

Actually, I don't think RB08 was tough at all. I think we had it very easy. The weather 'could' have dealt us a very different hand of cards indeed, and it could'a been Hell. As it is, it was just very long.

It was!

Bit early in your race licence holding career to become a speed snob innit?

Especially as the 80 knot boat you were a guest aboard was no faster than our lowly 50 knot boat in the only rough bit there was in Round Britain! Odd that.

Still, as we know, It's easy to go fast in the flat, especially as a passenger.

Well, we joined mainly to make sure that Fuller came in second in RB4

Seriously, we were never anything but 100% sure that we had to join in on RB08. The combination of a long and challenging course and the idea of seeing new places every day was impossible to resist. Talk about a proper pub crawl... Turned out to be more than worth it. Hats off for OldMan and the rest of the organizers for putting up a fantastic venue

See you in 2012!
