I was planning to come on this cruise but work commitments cant be changed
I was planning on doing the trip last year, even though i applied a little late,
but had little response to my mails apart from a link to join biboa.
and imho the thing that makes a good criuse is the diversity of boats, however big or small, and good company,and the fact of every body looking out for each other,
hopefully if this cruise is on next year, then we will be along to play.

Thanks for your response, sorry if you didnt get a reply to your email last year, not sure what happened there.

The event will be on again next year and would be good to have you along for the ride. Its about cruising in good company to great places and having a laugh along the way.

All the best

Julian

No one is asking for you to join for this one as i said come along its only the accommodation and dinner you pay for, as for arranging cruises apart from a run in the solent i have not seen many what you would call a cruise posted, apart from what Julian as arranged, and he dose not get paid for his time

That's not true in my opinion, but maybe they are not all arranged with much notice - seems to have been the best way so far this year, and maybe it depends on how you define a cruise (if "cruise" is defined as having an overnight stay, then no, not so many).

I have been out in company on the following:-
March Medina Muster
July BBQ and camping trip
From southampton to Dancing ledge, then on to Poole for lunch and return
From Southampton to Alderney and back same day
Various jaunts around the solent in company
Wanted to go on the alderney weekend but could not make it in the end,
could not make it round the island this year either

none of those mentioned above were arranged by Julian, but all were posted on Ribnet in upcoming cruises

I'll get off my high horse now

If you think that you would get left behind then i would be prepared to be the last boat
Any other reasons ?
Post what you think, we are all big boys no one takes it personally.
But to add another answer to why no-one is coming:-
1) not too far
2) work - not really but working abroad does not make it easy
3) Cost - at the moment, yes to some extent, but I would find the money if I really wanted to
4) No I don't think so, not for me anyway
Other - maybe the expectation that you need to join BIBOA (not so reading later postings, but not clear in original posting)
- i'm only in UK til Saturday afternoon, otherwise might well have come
- finding crew with suitable clothing late in season (not a problem if good weather, but I can't afford to buy drysuits for various people that could end up coming, and they won't buy their own for one or two trips a year)

Update,

Well things are looking good, we have 31 confirmed for the event now, not as many as last year yet but I am sure there will be a few last minute people joining us.

If anyone does have any questions about BIBOA being it membership details , costs etc please just ask and I will be happy to talk to you.

All the best

Julian
