Easdale RIB Rendezvous, 5th/6th May 2012

Easdale RIB Rendezvous 5th/6th May 2012

We intend to hold this event on 5th/6th May which is the first Bank Holiday weekend in May. The Easdale RIB Rendezvous is a cruise in company event in some of the best UK RIB cruising grounds. Easdale’s fantastic harbour is situated approximately 16 miles south of Oban, Argyll on Scotland’s west coast.
Open to all seaworthy RIBs, last year’s event attracted around 45 RIBs of all shapes and sizes from 4 to 11m.
The event website will be updated shortly. Full details will be posted on RIBnet within the next fortnight. This is an early diary indication to those who may be interested

What are the launching facilities like on Easdale (been almost 30 years since I was last there).

I'd be interested in visiting with the Inflatable at some point.

Well that's done it. We were planning to be up @ Kyleakin for the week before so it looks like we'll have to head back to Easdale to join in this again since we had such fun last year (Hornet)

Well done Tony! Good to see the locality was up for a second go at it. This was a top event and I'd recommend it to anyone who is considering attending.

Linky for the thread on last year's event.

Jambo, Wilk, Mike
Thanks for the positive support, look forward to catching up again
Zodiac Spindrift - Launching at Easdale is across the stones on the beach but the going is firm firm enough for a 4x4 or a car with reasonable traction - bring a rope just in case
Discomik - it would be good to see you here. Wilk's link gives some indication of what its like here, the dedicated website is up for 2011 still but 2012's event will follow

What sort of mileage is involved on a trip like this just thinking of fuel as I have seen Tonys 110 filled with jerry cans.

Hi Mick
depends on a lot of things but last year I went thru 140 ltrs but the sea state was big and swell. Depends where we going to there maybe petrol. Wait and see what the final cruise plans are and make your culations.
