Would like to, but can't do the Thurs I'm afraid (could only do Tue and couldn't stay overnight).
Looks like Ian has you covered though :)

If there are only three of us, maybe we could re=locate to the 4-seater cabin in the main bar? I land at LHR at 17:30, so might be closer to 19:00 when I arrive. I'll drop my bottle off on Tues or Weds.

Bottle dropped off. I mentioned we might be just three poor souls in need of port and said if so, we may jump into the cabin.
