Kinsale - Aberystwyth last week

As an RNLI fund raiser, 16 Ribs left Kinsale last Friday to Aberystwyth and returned on the Sunday. a round trip of 385 miles. The weather outbound was rough F5-6 hence no pics....too busy holding on and trying to miss the holes!! Sunday was calm, but thick fog all the way to the Irish coast. Had an interesting VHF Con with the Stena fast ferry who was worried about his paintwork off fishguard hehe. Reckon as a group we raised 25,000 Euros. Enjoy the pics

Hey, well done to all!!

I think I recognise the Cobra. Does it belong to a Mr. Caulfield by any chance?? Could be wrong but I'm almost certain it's his boat. I've definitely seen Seajib (the Zodiac SRMN) around crosshaven before as well. I heard about the fundraiser back along and wanted to do it but have no rib at the mo.

Glad to hear it was a success
