Spirit Send Off - part one!



Today Cath and I met up with Nadia to check out Cardiff Bay and the facilities available for the SoC send-off weekend - and to make sure there is space for The Pride of Bristol.

I've taken some snaps that hopefully will give people an idea of what to expect

Lets start with the Slip way at Cardiff bay Yacht Club.

The site is very secure - Security on the barrier during the day - Locked gates at night - so no worries about leaving your rib here.

This is the Pontoon that PoB will be moored to - with Ribs all arround.

The club was busy with sailors - so it will be interesting to see what the think when we turn it into Cardiff Bay RIB club for the weekend

Now pay attention - here's an important pic!!

This is the "The Waterguard" (The light couloured building on the left) where the Saturday night Party is being held

It is right next to "The Tube" where the SoC exhibition is

View of the Bay from the Visitors Center

Possibility of mooring PoB here if the yacht club is unsuitable - eg high winds etc.
