  2. No it isn't... did anyone ever experience the bar at the top of the hill climb to be actually 'open' when they got there?!!!

    It was much easier when we had a navy bigger than the next 3 combined - the sea was ours, no questions.

    Now sadly the Royal Navy could just about cope with defending the Isle of Wight....... :cry:
