Team Smokin enjoyed the day too, a big thankyou is due to Guy for the loan of a spare shroud and to the race team for delaying the second race as long as they could to let us get into the race. Great fun on the river and we will be back.

A fantastic days racing and a superb lunch - many thanks to all at TVSC.

BTW - not guilty of loosening my crew's toe straps over lunch, but the divers roll he did out of the boat has got to score top marks for style :)

Was particularly impressed with the low-level fly past.  Who arranged it and what was it?

When I was but a boy in Dublin in the days when you rushed outside to look at an aeroplane (not a plane I hasten to add)the way you could tell a Viscount from a Dakota was the engine note.  The Viscount was high pitched and the Dakota more of a growl.  At least aeroplanes flew in ash and I believe that in an earlier era over Germany they flew in clouds formed largely of lead.

I was very lucky to go on the last commercial flight of a dakota,my favorite aircraft of all time,they are only used for freight now as the  door size and access is incorrect for disabled people!ridiculous really as the guy sitting in front of me was a para from 1944 ,he had 2 crutches and wouldnt have missed it for the world!! the joys of health and safety!!!!
