Best Ribbing Pictures and Videos Of 2006

Thought i'd start a thread so people can post pictures of their best places visisted, things they have done and seen this year. Mine is got to be seeing dolphins in cardigan bay and learning to wakeboard.

I will post some pics when i find them.

Thanks

James

Just a couple of pics of one of my favourite anchorages. In the pic showing the two beaches, the object looking like a submarine near the upper beach is a basking shark. It was in the bay when I arrived and still there when I left about four hours later.

The place is locally known as David Balfour's Bay, because it's the place where the hero of RLS's Kidnapped was washed ashore after being shipwrecked on the Torran Rocks. It's on the south side of Erraid at the west end of the Ross of Mull.

If you type Fidden into Google maps, choose the satellite view and scroll south, you'll see the bay and two beaches. Iona's just round the corner.

That was the longest trip yet in my RIB, 35 miles from home. Time, erly June this year. Saw porpoises, dolphins, lots of guillemots, razorbills, a couple of puffins and diving gannets. Great day out - could've stayed overnight if I'd had the time.

Yes it was Cascais where the P1's were racing - we (the Thundercats) were there as a demonstration and it was good fun although very tiring on the arms!

Forgot to mention my first outing in a P1 boat in Cowes in a twin V12 Lamborghini powered aluminium beast!

You mean Robyn - our apprentices young lady?
