RIBbaldar weekend in Vestmannaeyjar

We had great weekend in Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands) over the weekend I took Cheesee across Friday morning, as soon as arriving we put her on the water and took a little spin with RIBbaldar members of Vestmannaeyjar, then we too trip to Stafnes with bonfire materials for the Saturday evening, three more ribs from Reykjavik came on the evening ferry and we went out to welcome them by convoying Herjolfur (the ferry) to the harbour, as soon as we had launched the ribs we took a spin to Bakkafjara to see the building of new harbour on the mainland for the Vestmannaeyjar ferry service. Saturday morning we went on 7 ribs exploring all the islands south of Vestmannaeyjar (Heimaey) including the most south island Surtsey which is the second youngest island in the world raised from the ocean in eruption on November 14th 1963.
In the evening nine ribs full of peoples went to Stafnes for BBQ, hill singing and bonfire.

This evening was organised by number of our fellow members of RIBbaldar the Vestmannaeyjar branch.

This weekend was a GRAND EVENT and I am still absorbing and downloading the loads of information we were given in the tour.

Perhaps if people here on RIBnet are interested in participating in an event like this we will be interested in having RIBnet event in Iceland including three/four days cruising around the islands in 2011.

Following is a long series if photos but I took nearly 600 photos.
