Hi,

Glad you all made it back in one piece. It was good fun. How are all the bumps and bruises on your passengers?. Will you ever get the girls back on your rib again ???

Weymouth 2003

Morning All

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who made the effort at the weekend to join us in this run. Hope you all had a good time. The weather could have been better on the leg to weymouth but yesterday we had a great run back to Yarmouth.

As some of you have heard we had a incident on Saturday with 3 people being thrown out of the boat in heavy seas of Anvil Point. The crew had just swaped over drivers and forgot to attach the kill cord to three body, the boat hit a wave to fast and took a heavy landing on 1 side, this caused all of the crew to be thrown into the water with out dry suits , luckly no one was hurt just shocked etc, Richard Bateson luckly saw them in the water and managed to stop their boat and pick up the wet but safe crew, Lesson to be learnt ALLWAYS wear the kill cord, This could have turned into a very serious accident.

Apart from that the weekend was a great sucess and we had 58 people in all and some 14 Rinbs attend. Met a few of the Guys from Ribnet which was good to finaly put a face to a name.

Thanks Again

Julian

Actually it was Jackeen-missus who saw them, and then Jackeen-Mr did a very well planned and controlled transfer into the boat which was still moving at about 8-10kts. Great team effort in getting all sorted out.

Not only does this show the importance of kill-cords, but that of being buddied with another RIB. Up to that point, we had been travelling alone (We were one of the last RIBs to leave, headed across Poole Bay and gained shelter from Old Harry and Swanage Bay to allow us to overtake loads of ya!). We'd only been in the company of the other boat for 10 mins when the incident happened.

Glad to hear that you all had a great time.

What a fine collection of Ribs I am only sorry we couldn't make the run to weymouth.

Still we had a nice run over from Southampton and met a few new members.

Hope to see some of you next year.

Jackeen

Yes we got back in one piece, having dropped the girls off at Portsmouth Kevin and I carried on to Littlehampton expecting bad weather on route (as advised by the Yarmouth marina office) anyway to our suprise that was the most pleasant run that weekend. Just shows some can't get the weather forecast right .

I think the girls will be back on board but not straight away.

How about you what time did you leave and what conditions did you have?

Greetings to Mrs Jackeen

Thanks Julian & all who organised the cruise...thanks Richard and Louise for hosting us on Blue Ice again...always a pleasure!

Best thing is everyone home safe



Nice to meet so many of you & put faces to 'Rib-Net' names...
Very impressed by the professional cruise by the lads in the 4.7 Rib...great job!

We chilled in Yarmouth for a bit Andre before heading for Warsash...wind & tide had settled nicely and we could pootle along at a Paradiddle pace (60 knots or so Jackeen is telling me to say)

By the way ( rescued ) rubber ducky got safely all the way to Weymouth & back. Thing is he likes bigger ribs now he's been on Blue Ice...
Give us a wave out there!!!

Missus (Jackeen)

Aches & Pains

Hi everyone,

Well after a very long soak in a hot bath and a good nights sleep. I woke up stiff as a board, What a brilliant weekend thanks Jullian.

Yes, the girls will be back on board, a very big well done to both ladies, especially my wife Joyce as it was her first cruise of any great distance.

The furthest Joyce had been previously, was a trip round Pompey harbour in the middle of summer.

Hopefully everyone who took picture of the w/end will start posting them soon. We both look forward to seeing them.

Cheers
