I missed it but apparently it was announced at National that it would be the bank holiday weekend at the end of May, venue yet to be confirmed. I've already booked the ferry.

I will hopefully get the Stiletto back from painting this evening, plenty of time to put it back together for Wednesday ferry other than work getting in the way. See you in Harwich with luck...

I wouldn't recommend the scrambled eggs breakfast on the boat - they were just about inedible last week although the rest was OK, if nothing to write home about :?

What an amazing weekend!

One wet day and the rest was scorching sunshine. Great runs, great campsite, great company and great cars. Roll on GD 2020 :)

Thanks so much to the Dutch Impers for another brilliant weekend. My favourite bit was discovering the Wild Roosters! ;)
