Escorted Cruise round the IOW

Having had my RIB for 2yrs and living on the Island for 15 months I got to thinking that I am not still not very confident in taking it out on a passage or cruise other than going to Southampton or Portsmouth. I know that there are lots of groups doing cruises every week but I didnt think that just being part of a group on a cruise would give me the confidence that I wanted. I have discussed this with other novices anf found that this was a common problem.

So I have taken the plunge and engaged two Power Boat Instructors to Escort me and some other RIBs on a trip round the Island next Saturday 15/7/06. The day will start with a briefing and some tuition passage planning,preparing the boat and crew etc

There are still some spaces left if anybody else wishes to join in. The cost per boat is 60 The cruise will meet at kevin Mole Outboards Pontoon 0n the River Medina at 0900 and will also end there as well with a chance for discussion and Q&A with the Instructors.

If anybody is interested in joining in please feel free to telephhone me on 07803605458 or email roy.2webster@btinternet.com

This is aimed at Novice crews or crews that lack confidence to do this in a large group
