Avon 4.7 will be deppendent on the big boys letting me bring it.

Anyone else interested? The final runners and riders list is being drawn up and I am about to e-mail all skippers waypoints and arrangements? At this stage it looks like we have 14 ribs going.

I really want to come but I don't think its realistic that my 4.7m would do the job. Unless the sea if flat calm.

I am also interested in joining the fun. Could be a good chance to add some French slipways to the web site.

Charles. Can you feed us information what your final plans are for the weekend just in case we can "Swing By"
From next Sunday (15th) e-mail the boat at..........
clivetully@spirit-of-cardiff.com

For all of the new boys (and girls) with smaller boats remember, your boat will take you anywhere. All you need is the courage to take the first step. It is interesting to read about so many old hands that are now on the forum offering advice and help. I have cruised and raced with many of these people on many events that Biboa organsied in the mid 90's. Just because there are bigger boats around do not think that they are the only ones to cross oceans. Loads of people said that we could never take a 10 metre boat around the world because the seas were too big. I learnt many years ago not to listen to the arm chair boater.

Just Do it as Ellen McCarthar would say

How true Alan. Your book 'Beating The Big One' certainly inspired me. It made me detarmined to have a go at my own little 'Big One'. Well I did it and now that east cardinal marker I only saw in the telescope is on my list of easy runs!

Next time it is all the way to Cromarty.

Geoff, Alan P, I have e-mailed you both. Could not agree more with Alan's comments. With reliable engine's, seaworthy rib and experienced company, the cruise should not be a problem for smaller ribs.
