Cork Week 2004 Ribs (and a big yacht as well!!)

Was down in Xhaven Boatyard Marina tonite having a look around, and although Cork Week is a sailing event there were some nice "tenders" as the Yanks called them around the marina!! Were lucky enough too be invited aboard Roy Disney's "Pyewacket" a Max Z86 carbonfibre racing yacht (lets just say its worth a few million!!) as well. They didn't even mind us snooping around below deck!!

The "tender" to Pyewacket. A Protector RIB. Don't know what size she is as it looked dwarfish tied alongside the 86 ft Yacht!! Had twin Yammy 300 HPDI's though

"Excalibear", support RIB to Bear Of Britain sailing team. Haven't a clue what she is, my guess is a Ribtec, console looks familiar though. I'm sure you guys will know!! One serious RIB!!

Think Bear of Britain is a Cougar marine rib she is local to my waters and the Scorpion is or looks like the support rib to CHERNIKEEF of TEAM GBR fame
if not correct on BEAR rib some one else will know. were you sailing or just there for the beer ive heard the atmosphere is better than Cowes week.

You are right about the Scorp being the support RIB to CHERNIKEEF. I forgot to mention that. I live locally (about 2 mins drive away) so I'm really just here for the beer and to do a bit of spectating. I've attended the last 2 events, in 2002 & 2000 and the atmosphere is unreal. Everybody's so friendly, and sometimes I wonder how the sailors are sober the following mornings!!

never got there mysef but all the WAFI'S i know love it, how are the boy's doing from the IoW most of them are full on sailors and its very hard to make the team, BEAR have one of the best helms in the game in CJ so expect them to do well,sailed with his brother in 2003 Admirals cup, all the best and enjoy the fest.

Blagged a sail on the first Pyewacket last time it was in crosser for Cork week, may'be 8 or 10 years ago. That was a 70' pure racing machine. Nothing below except a cathedral like cavern, with lee cloths, a nav station and a heads with a curtain round it!!!.......And that one cost over a $mill back then.
