Channel Islands Camping Cruise

Update Dates set for 29-31 August 2003. Read the rest of the thread for more details!

I have just received the provisional calendar for BIBOA 2003, and I see that Yvonne has already pencilled in two temporary dates for this cruise.
The dates are 25 - 28 July and 02 - 04 August 2002. This is not to say that it will be on these dates, but a start nontheless.

Manos, it would be fabulous to host you and your family over here...we have 3 kids, (8,10 and 12)virtually born on ribs and do everything as a family, the kids love camping.

Julian, if we can manage to gather the crowd which did the last cruise and add some more, there is no doubt, weather permitting, it will be a great success. Come on Keith - stick Quicksilver in your car, come to Jersey on the ferry and join us.

As far as I am concerned Richard, you need to study... call yourself an IT expert! Have you got the movie thing working yet, or was it the chat room. No more cruising for you until you get on top of the things.

Never mind the gadgets, Charles, I just need to get out and do some RIBing
I'm like the garage mechanic with the old banger - it's like a PC scrapyard in my house! trouble is that after day after day of fixing them, I just can't be bothered with them at home.
Anyway, the jigsaw pieces are slowly coming together for a RIB for next season, fingers crossed...
ps didn't you mean to say...

If I win the lottery before then, I'll be there, otherwise I'll have no way of getting there

This is a picture of the camp-site at Herm looking across at Sark. Waking up in the morning, unzipping your tent and faced with this view is spectacular.

Manos, the weather is something we have no control over...suffice to say that we do have lovely days in the Summer.

One of the many fantastic beaches in Herm. Due to the extreme tidal movements in this part of the world (if you did not know, we have 30+ feet tides) the water is always incredibly clean and the vis is very good.

Easy Matt, hitch a ride on someone's rib. People are always looking for competent crew.

Crowd Gathering

Morning Charles

Looks great. I will gather the crowd that went last year and see if I can drum up a few more as well. I do know of a couple of extra people that will go.

I can allways take some people on our boat if they would like a lift . No problem.

Julian

Hi Charles

Thanks Charles. (I was just joking about the weather )
The photos look great, the place looks GREATER. I know about the tides and how strong they are, use to sail their with my Sunseeker a few years back. Sunseeker now is pestering the pocket of someone else
Kids will love it specially if they have other children to play with.
The dates look fine to me right now. However, will know later on at the time but I'll be marking my calendar.
Are we keeping an udate diary in the FORUM?? Last time I looked seemed pretty empty to me.
Charles keep me posted. Thanks

Roll on Summer....... the last cruise we did to St.Malo generated quite a few more people who are joining BIBOA and I know are aquiring their own ribs. I'm sure we can gather a worthy crowd ,Julian. By the way, I have just got off the 'phone to Derek @ Scorpion, my rib will be ready in 2 weeks time. The hard nose is on, tubes ready and all the new wiring as well as isolater switches have been fitted. Did you manage to have a look when you were there the other week-end?
Sorry Richard (eagles-eyes - could'nt find your hotel in Carteret, though!) it is 2003.
