I might have been back in the water next weekend if someone hadn't egged me on to rip out my entire wiring loom and start again

I'll get a bit done during the week but I've still got to refit the a frame and patch the big hole I jigsaw'd out of my deck

Shame it would've been fun seeing a frenchman telling me I can't do something

Thanks Erin for your waving your majic wand/soldering iron over my 0183 network, saved me a few hours there

Capbreizh

Hi,

I am the french guy Michel (cap_pegase35).
The description of gotchiguy is fully right !
On this trip, Paul asked me to see us in Ecrehou. It's a plaisure for us to meet another ribmen.
Paul ask also me if he can follow us on the Sienne and my respons was "Exceptionaly YES".
BUT, even if you can't understand the french frame of mind, the basis to take part in a "Capbreizh club trip" is to be a member of the club. The reasons are large (insurance, important trip preparation by the club ...).
For the trip of next saturday, I have saied YES to Paul (only) to follows us on the Sienne (and to speak and eat with us in Ecrehou).
We don't agree to take in charge the ribs don't members of the club. We spent a lot of time to prepare these trips for our members and I think it would be shabby to try to follow us. Of course, there isn't a war if there are other boats behind us. The sea is for everybody but I only try to understand yourself that it would be a graceless manner.
I hope you have understand my very bad English ...

Best regards.

Michel

You'd have regretted it if you hadn't done it properly. Especially if you'd lost half your nav gear mid passage 'cos one fuse fed it all.

Easy peasy. 10 mins max!

Yeah.... we'll remember that when they try joining the Floptilla.....
I think we should cordon off the upper parts of the reef say above MLWS, lay out our beach towels and set up a passport control. Maybe even introduce a landing and anchoring fee.

You' haven't tried it all yet. Save your thanks 'til you know it works.

And GJ0KYZ, as far as Paris is concerned, it's still on in my books. Really not much more to do except pray for good weather and plan some hotels.
