I meant Royal Solent Yacht club in Yarmouth not Weymouth.

Hotel now only has a few spare rooms so anyone else interested please let me know by Tuesday at the latest or they will be full up.

Cheers

Julian

Weymouth 2007

Morning All,

Right looks like everything is now set for the weekend, seems like the weather is on our side as well with only light winds and even a spot of sunshine. Happy days.

Ok so were meet in Yarmouth between 11am - 12am for lunch and a few beers. We will aim to leave at around 2pm for the run to Weymouth. For this event we will be using channel VHF CH 77. If you need to radio us on route our boat name is Scorpion, Other boat names are Ocean Devil, Hot Lemon, Happy Hours, Seahound 5 there are other which i will post later.

If anyone hasnt paid as yet could you bring along a cheque and pass to Roger Lyas in Yarmouth so he can settle up with the hotel etc.

Many Thanks

Julian Lyas

At the end of the day were all here to enjoy RIBS and cruising together so any ideas, comments would be very welcome.

Lets sort out any problems and move on so we can do the most important thing and get out on the water and have some fun.

Julian, I'm sure that you're a great bloke and superb at organising such events. However, the whole BIBOA thing appears as stiff as a board to me. There appears to be liitle fun and humour in the whole thing. The related posts on this site are dull. If the cruises looked a good laugh, myself and probably a couple of other Cornish guys would tow up and join in. Dartmouth is not far from us. Or, a combined Scilles trip perhaps?

Hey Mollers.....

I can see how you might form this opinion , but I really believe that you are mistaken . When I first got seriously interested in RIBs about 5 years ago , I got a real warm welcome on the BIBOA East Coast Cruise ( even though I was a complete newbie ) , got lots of good advice about different types of RIBS , sensible advice about training etc , etc ( Thanks Alan & JCW ). One of the best cruises I've ever been on was a BIBOA week long cruise out of Oban . Brilliant company , larger vessels ALWAYS escorting smaller or enough small RIBS to buddy up . I've never met anyone with so many silly hats ( Dougie , our local Scots guide ). When I was the only small RIB intending to join a cruise ( Channel Islands trip this year ) , I was invited to join the crew of one of the bigger vessels ( Thanks Martin ) .

BIBOA is not the stuffy Scorpion Owners Club that some people suggest it might be . I'm sure they would welcome your assistance in organising a Scillies Cruise . I'd be up for that ! Just my 2d worth . Regards Bern.

That's great. You obviously have first hand knowledge of BIBOA and it's very positive. I'm just passing on my feelings as to how the organisation comes across on this forum. It's not personal.

I can see how the perception may come across but I can only agree with the words of Bern. My first cruise was the Oban trip and I have met some fantastic people through BIBOA, gained lots of advice and help, and generaly drunk too much with like minded people. I could not recommend it enough.
