    Arrived in Glasgow (Govan)having flew up from Cardiff to visit family. All I can say to everyone who put this event on, well done and many thanks. You gave a lot of pleasure to many, and even inspired us to go home and build our own boat, sadly we didnt get to launch it Sunday as planned. Anyway folks, thankyou again.
