Look forward to the video.

I'd like to come along to watch something like this, there is one in Looe sometimes?

Could I bring the boat over and look around meet people or would I just get in the way of things?

Hats off!!!

To all the ECA members and organizers….. for such great event.

We’ve only been members for a few days, but …..It’s a real pleasure to be a part of such a great club with such friendly like minded members.

To Lloyde, Nadine, Steph and Rich for all their hospitalities over the weekend.

To Rich, for his more than efficient Marine engineer talents on our trailers wheel bearing…..Bish! bosh!....There was no hanging about…… ‘He’s faster than a Formula 1 pit crew’. lol

To Steph, and the camera boat....I knew we'd find a use for the Ring....lol

As for the Race itself!……..Well!.............Absolutely brilliant fun!
What an amazing adrenaline rush.
Myself, Natalie (Little Miss Nuts) and Ross (Puppiesballs) enjoyed every last
second of it.
Even Michelle (the wife) was heard screaming encouragement from the beach.

Oh yeah!......and I just have to share this little tale too…..
On our way to start line my crazy daughter Natalie, who was sitting in the back, said………..‘Hey Dad, If I fall out, don’t stop! Just win the race….I can swim!’……… Crazy kid!……..ya just gota smile tho ain’cha.

Anyways….A great time was had by all!

Thanks to everyone for a great day.

Steve

Hey!!!! .......... I like the sound of an 'Inter Club' event.
Unfortunately these events are currently for Club members only.
However, should an ECA Poker Run be arranged for next year, I'm sure opening it up to non members can be suggested to the committee.

For what I've seen they seem to be a very obliging bunch.

Steve

You'd better ask Rich and Lloyde if it was calm this year.
