Guernsey this Weekend

Looks like we have 2 Boats and 3 people going from Salcombe to Guernsey tomorrow afternoon and returning on Sunday afternoon !!

Have a spare seat at the moment, or if you want to bring a boat !! the more the merrier.

Also have a spare co-driver seat to Race when we get there.

I'd be 100% up for the co-driver's seat but they're not doing the testing tomorrow so I won't be qualified

Well he made it here in the end! His support rib split a tube so is now out of the water and awaiting repair this morning.

Paul E is all trained up after a quick session last night and will be his nav for the weekend. Great to have a UK racer over at last, bring on a fantastic weekend's racing!!

Well that was well up there with the best weekends ever! Huge thanks to Bob for letting me in his boat, and to everyone that sorted my training and testing out so quickly and at such short notice!

Hope you boys made it back ok! The offer is still there if anyone needs an OCR nav at any point

Wow! I was moving the trailer yesterday lunchtime when the lifeboat came back in, and I said to Charlotte I wonder if it was for you lot, joking of course... I then see in the paper today that it was for a powerboat and a rib with a back injury 20 miles out! Phoned Larby and he confirmed it was you (who else could it have been!?)
