I'm home, decent crossing, but arrival delayed by an hour because of engine problems on the ferry. I think the Steam Packet Co need to by some new boats as the Mananon already has major problems and now the Snaefell. Had a great time on the Island, weather was mixed, but when the sun shines. there's no finer place on the planet. Great to meet some old friends again and make some new ones. I'll sort out my pics tomorrow and get them posted. Hope the rest of the week goes well fellahs and that the hangovers aren't too bad from today's lunchtime drinkathon.....

Got home safe and sound tonight and just been fed.

I thoroughly enjoyed the week, the company and, of course,the derestricted roads.

Thanks to everyone for coming!

I especially hope that people got a taste for the Isle of Man which will encourage a return, either for the TT, the Manx GP or some of the other events over there.

Piccies will be posted soon.
