Just been having a look at some of the photos from Neill Ross this morning from the Flotilla and there are some stunning images. Please do take a look. Neill was tasked with getting photos of as many boats as possible and offer participants the opportunity to buy a photo of themselves on their boat during this once in a lifetime event! No easy task but he has done a brilliant job so hope lots of people buy an image or two!
