  • Hi Russell,

    After the mudfest that was IOW 2012 there is no way I'd travel to the festival any other way! We arrived from Glasgow a good 2 hours early and got fitted on an earlier boat by the lovely lady that met us in the cafe. What an experience, added so much to the whole weekend. Most defiantly see you next year.

  • Hello Russell.

    Taking the high speed Rib to the Isle of Wight was brilliant. It was quick and easy and it bypassed all the terrible traffic problems.

    ...and it was fun.

    Cheers. Mike.
