I'm in NW England as are one or two others. Pete7 is down around the Solent and I think that DockHead is down around there as well. If you sail up I'll bring the beer.

There are more Brits lurking here that one would as first suppose. Notwithstanding that, many, like me, are a long way from home.

Best regards

UK Group
Atoll mentioned setting up a UK group so I've had a go at it. If you want to join then the group is at

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...B+sailing.html

Tell any friends that you want. I haven't a clue as to whether this will work out, but ......

Cheers!
