Billy No Mates looking for "club"

I launch mainly off Calshot, occasionally from Hythe and sometimes from Baiter in Poole harbour when I can persuade family (wife + 13yr old daughter) or find buddies who want to “come out to play” but more often then not when I can go they are to busy or “… well its not very nice out there is it” – any one with same problems? The boat is a 5.8 Ribeye with 115/4 Yamaha 2 x single jockey’s and a bench at the back. Was coded for charter before I got it. Is there an informal club / gathering where you meet up help each other launch / recover etc and go out for jollies etc?

Not a club but we talk to each other here on RIBNET ...

A few of us go out in the area regularly.

Some of us go out a lot (too much perhaps!!!!!!!!!!)

Post or send a pm and we'll try & meet up

Hi Mike,

We (Son and self) mainly launch from Calshot when we 'do' the Solent. Have also been out of Baiter. Mainly Saturdays when the weather is not too bumpy. Usually stop off in Cowes for a hot bacon baguette at Tiffanys.

With a 75 might not be able to keep up with your 115 but would be game for a laugh!

Drop me a line next time you're going out and I'll do likewise.

Andy Beach

Is anybody out and about this weekend?

We're looking for something slightly different to do this weekend but can't think what.
