    I would just like to thank Gav for putting on a fantastic event, must have taken ages to put together.

    I haven't done so much running and walking since getting my car license!! Me and Chalk running down Rochester high street in shorts and lifejackets must have looked slightly odd!

    A few highlights from Team Wack (me and Bryan):
    Bryan approaching the pier like the marines to pick me up while under the watchful eye of the river police who had given us 10 minutes to get out of the area!

    Taking a 'shortcut' on Sunday that kept getting narrower and narrower until we had to turn round so making it a 'longcut'.

    Asking the helpful lady at the Guildhall for some info, "I'll just radio some colleagues" she says, "I've got two youn.....I mean two gentlemen here needing to know...". It's official we know do not look young!

    Having fun on the mud flats, gullies aplenty!!

    Winning the Treasure after a 500metre sprint. My legs are aching like hell today!!

    Fantastic weather for hovercrafting. No major breakdowns just goes to show how reliable the craft are getting now. Great venue, bar, showers etc. Would like to say a big thanks to the boatclub for their hospitality.

    Again, thanks to Gav and all the people who contributed to our Treasure, aarrrrr!
