The duck is off!

Featured Posts

There we were. Parked in the centre of Brum and minding our own business when all of a sudden boats all around. The BCN challenge is coming to town. Met up with The Biscuits, Mrs Biscuits and baby Bob the biscuits who are partaking in the 2 days of fun mayhem. We were having a few beers and the duck overheard the conversation. He was desperate to try it. The BCN challenge .....not the beer (we have trained him to not drink it).

The Biscuits suggested we do the challenge and just stay were we are for another 2 days and get some points for ending up at the finish.

The duck wasn't having it so has gone off with Biscuits family for a 2 day trip round Birmingham. I guess he deserves a holiday. I guess it is better than being dressed up all day.

Not sure how he is going to get back to us........maybe some kind boater would give him a lift. We will be heading north on the T&M after a quick (slow) diversion onto the S&W first.

Why is he all out of focus? How many beers did you drink, and who is that bloke holding The Biscuits?

He seems to have grown. Or is he a late sub?

 Thought Dr Bob said it was called "Good Times",or maybe they were just gonna have good times eating that packet of biscuits?

 

ETA. Tis also what it says in The Biscuits profile...unless he has knicked someone else's boat.

 

I expect all you BCNer's are in the pub now.Be nice to teacher.

I know but they aren't the same. The Co-op do the best ones, they also do a chocolate chip cookie type biccy that quite good. The trick is to just not think about the biccies that got away. ;)

Donald is a "Giant Rubber duck" of course he hasn't grown. Or were you referring to Mr Biscuit?

Slightly off topic. I love Chocolate Rich Tea biscuits. Can't get them anymore. I must write to Max Vitty. Or is that McVitie?

No, that is true. 

The reversing knob is a prized secret on board.

Well 8am has come and gone without the cacophony of loud noise of the start of the BCN. Just another typical morning then.......except no duck to help make Mrs Bob's Nespresso. Suppose we better get up some time and make an effort when we are now officially registered in this BCN thingy. 

If anyone sees the duck on his travels today, please give us a shout.

You don't seem to be taking it very seriously for a highly competitive yacht racing couple. It is a competition you know!

Well we are stuggling without he duck. He usually looks at the map.

We were going along merrily this morning, hung a left and ended up in a black hole.

Not sure where to go now.

I think Tree monkey was right. It was a boring tunnel. Far too straight. 

Now, how did you get on? Hope the duck didn't give you too much trouble and he increased your score by at least 40%. We never made it back to the center as it was so nice down here. Hope Bob enjoyed the weekend?
