    I really fancy running over late Friday or early Sat in Phaeton if the weather makes that realistic, probably sh but you never know. would only do so in company though. Neaps too should help.

    As has already been suggested I was already on board Asterie a couple of years ago before SWMBO apparantly knew I was even going which led to an interesting conversation and little chance of last year..... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Needless to say I haven't actually got round to discussing things for this year yet and things will be very much dependent on how well the holiday period goes.

    Observer (Tim) did the trip in his Sealine last year, and was well recieved with only a small amount of good natured barracking from raggies, so I'd encourage any mobo's who want to join in to do so. Haven't seen him posting much recently, but if he was doing trip again, sure he'd travel in company.

    Observer's was the first boat I've ever seen with a ceiling-stowed cockpit table. I think it even had one of those US-style product liablility stickers on it. Went something like...

    "Warning. Do not drop this on your head when opertaing heavy machinery, you thick sod. It might cause pregnant women"
    Next time, it'll all be different.

    Sounds like a good trip. Myself and my other half are available as crew so if anybody thinks they can put us to good use, PM me and we can discuss whether we fit your needs.
