In my town I'm always among a lot of people and in the queue ; the same for the sea in summer , always crowded.
I've got fun sailing with my rib out of season expecially when there are no people .
Here, in Italy , they don't understand the meaning of "black rib" and this way of sailing , as they only love to get tanned on their "white inflateble floating living rooms "
That's the reason why I love this forum so much , cause I like the way you mean sailing with your ribs. All these reasons connected to the beautiful lands of your country.
