Sorry couldn\'t be there

Just got back to my second office (armchair at home) after returning cross Channel today on MBM cruise.

My personal thanks to Brendan for the marathon effort of pulling it all together and to MDL for its support.

I'll get a final tally together on the charity giving and let you all know the figure when I get back to the (first) office.

Re: Sorry couldn\'t be there

Kim,

Sorry you couldn't be there, but it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves, thanks to the help of all that made it happen......see Mobochat for details. Bit like an acceptance speech at an awards ceremony, but lots of peeps made this happen.


How did the cruise go?

Re: Sorry couldn\'t be there

Cruise went okay thanks, good crown of people, some familiar faces, some new, nice balance.

Started with 22 boats, ended with 20 (one susp[ected overheat, one poorly skipper) so we nearly counted everyone back in (and will be helping the remaining two get back).

Cherbourg, St Helier (long stay thanks to weather, couldn't make Binic as planned) and then St DepSol Port in Guernsey (sorry Dom!) before home yesterday.
