Er - then there was the social side. I was staying on a yacht in Ocean Village Marina and was worried I would be bored in the evening. Wrong! Most nights ended up in a pub or night club, even a Casino on Monday as we couldn't find anywhere else open and the booze was amazingly cheap. On Thursday we had the exhibitors party and the blues band was fronted by the MD of the show's sponsor company - bloody good he was too. A few weeks back on the Amelie May are now needed to dry out. Which is where we are going tomorrow. Not sure which way we will go from Bath, we might nip into Bristol or maybe just head slowly back to Devizes where she is booked in for the winter.
Oh and one night I was interviewed by a chap who is researching our use of an I band Exocet Jammer during the Falklands War (see last years blog posts of early May). Fascinating stuff and quite scary as I had forgotten quite a lot but yet another free meal..........
