Iceland 2005 ?

Itís a bit early to think about next year but I'm thinking about making a trip to Iceland at some point in 2005. Probably around June to September and wanted to see if there is any interest out there for a bit of offshore ribbing?

The trip would be Scotland - Shetland Islands - Faroe Islands and then a 270mile leg to Iceland.

If you are interested then you will know if your boat is capable of making that distance then let me know and I'll keep you upto speed with plans and dates etc. Or if you fancy making the trip but donít have a boat then I always need crew !

Also if you are based in the Shetlands/Faroe Islands or even Iceland then I'd be pleased to hear from you.

Regards

Mark

Hi Mark
I live in Iceland and would be more than happy to assist you guys as I have pointed out number of times on this foum as well as on Boatmad. Nice to see you again on the Rib.net Alan, long time no see. I was ribbing in the Solent last weekend and it was great fun in "moderate" sea.

Hi Mark

Count me in.

This is a trip I want to do anyway.

Only change I will need to make for my RIB is some extra fuel tanks, 270 miles is on the limit of my good weather range at present.

As family unlikly to go it may leave me with a few places on my RIB if anyone in interested.

Regards Gary
