So its Wednesday , Tuesday deadline has come and gone ....so am I safe to assume that all the “issues ” were not resolved and the announcement on this years test runs is going to be postponed/delayed?
There's Brexit and then there's the BBP. I'd gladly make the swap. We'd wrap up Brexit by lunchtime and go for a pint. But, seriously, it's a little involved but we're making quick and positive progress. You'll just have to trust us for a few more days but safe to say that things are going very well.

Intriguing. Could one be permitted to read between the lines, put 2 & 2 together, come up with 7 & muse that the location is different than 2018?

Bad news everyone - despite being invited to join us in a joint venture to soak up the vibe and learn lots about how to get the boat back onto Coniston Water it would appear that the museum doesn't want anyone to see Bluebird run this year...

Does this mean there will be no K7 outing this year, or just that it won't be a joint venture with the Ruskin?

I can see the Ruskin not wanting to be part of a joint venture & against K7 running any where other than once down Coniston - that is their default position after all...but having the clout to stop Bluebird running anywhere? That sounds like a fairly major power shift...
