Count us in

Stop over for us will probably depend on the availability of accommodation especially if we're going for a short notice trip (the Mrs is not keen on tents, having said that she is not that keen about ribs either!)
you don't know how lucky you are, if you kept that rib of yours in the wet stuff a bit more I'm sure your v.much better half would be all smiles

how about doing both, Wicklow on the saturday, then back across to IOM & then home to Caernarfon on the Sunday

Would agree with Wilk a 'stop over' will add to the experiance.

Ireland it is for me mate maybe IOM another day i have wanted to do a trip to Ireland for a long time Arklow would be better option for me from Aberdovey being west Wales but thought Wicklow would be better if we started from North Wales

willk thanks for your thoughts and input on the cruise i,m always ready for some good advice any info you can find on Wicklow would be very helpful thanks, the Bridge Tavern looked handy just a short walk from the harbour wall, you never know it may be open again by July

For those that want to stay over not sure if there is a lot of accommodation available being a small town. There is a hotel in Wicklow called the Grand Hotel looks a nice place just a short walk from the harbour.Maybe it might be better then to pick a specific weekend and take a chance on the weather so that those who want to stay over have time to book a room so how does the 14th July sound to everyone ?

I,m with willk ref a lead boat and sweeper i,m not keen on pairing up either its far better to keep eye contact if possible, for those that want a blast around and jump a few waves
i,m sure they will manage to find time to do both, as Paul says on the morfa nefyn run on the way back everyone just left leaving a few smaller boats behind, me and paul stayed till last and escorted a couple of smaller ribs back i know it was only 20 miles but they were thankful we did. This is my thoughts only maybe others may think different i,m not a leader,captain,or a member of Parliament just a fellow ribster that suggested a trip to Ireland

:quote: Patches sounds good lets hope it all comes together be good to meet fellow ribsters from over the water

doesn't seem to be much in it from aberdovey or caernarfon, we could just start from wherever suits best, meet at bardsey, and all run together to wicklow/arklow, as long as theres a few in each group for looking after each other

I'm okay with a car ride to meet up with you lot save arranging meet up times better if we all set off together

Went to Arklow a couple of years back with Jono and the Pwllheli gang (theres an old thread on here somewhere and quite a few pics - dead flat day and we all crossed in record time).

We had some help from the Arklow sailing club, who have a good set up in the inner harbour. Nice enough town, but was getting a little run down.

Good to try somewhere different so Wicklow still sounds best (and the IOM on Sunday of course)
