STOP PRESS - UPDATE, UPDATE

Hello Everyone

The week-end of the Inaugural Ribnet Conference is a week away and I would like to ensure that everyone attending has a great week-end and that all arrangements are duly taken care of.

If you have as yet, still not booked your accomodation please follow these links and do so a.s.a.p.

The preferred option is the Invicta Hotel Tel:01752 664997 Tell them you are part of the Ribnet meeting. There have been some cancellations, so try here first.

A number of people will be arriving on Friday evening, those with trailers please report to the office of Mayflower Marina (Angela) and state that you are members of the Ribnet meeting - they will direct you to their secure compound. I would suggest launching your rib, finding the berth and then park your trailer where the staff have directed you to do so.
Saturday morning a small flotilla will set-off from Torbay and (if the Garsides are not too hungover) should be arriving in Plymouth at around 11:00 am. To answer Kitten's question, I would hazard a guess for them to be off Starehole Bay at around 10:00am - Brian can confirm this.

All craft to listen out on CHANNEL 77 please! This will be the main communication channel for the entire week-end.

The focal point will be Mayflower Marina and the Invicta Hotel. I am the last person to prescribe to anyone what they should do, but I would like to suggest we all 'hang around' Mayflower Marina on Saturday morning until most people are present. Thereafter we can go boating, take in the sights, and generally potter around.

The Invicta will provide supper for everyone, so we should all be back in the marina,showered etc no later than 07:30. Dinner is loosely timed for around 8:00pm.

After the meal we will be entertained by Alan Priddy's slide show and talk in the main room at the Invicta Hotel.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

On a personal note - weather permitting I will be leaving Jersey early on Friday morning with my family heading directly to Fowey, where I will spend the night. I intend leaving Fowey fairly early on Saturday morning and should be around Plymouth waters at approximately 09:30am. If there is anyone coming from the South please let me know so that we can team up.

Cheers - I look forward to meeting you all

As I won't be in the sack in central London after a reunion of old-soldiers until about 0200 on Saturday morning, the odds of not having a hangover are sub-zero. And I don't think the 250-mile drive down will improve matters much. But, sod it, one way or another, Charles, we'll be there

Thanks for the update Charles, I'm really looking forward to it. I'm heading down early on Saturday morning and hope to make the marina between 9 and 10. I'd be interested to hear from anyone else driving in from the M5 at the same time.
At the moment I'm crewless (or should that be clueless!!) so I may need a hand to launch. I'm sure I'll be able to press gang someone! Incidently that would also mean I may be trying to do a room swap for a single - I'll keep you posted.

Look forward to meeting you all,

Dave

There are a few of us who are arriving on Friday, like Mike C. Crazyhorse, myself and maybe a few more. So if we will not have had too many beers in the evening then Saturday morning you will find us messing around in the marina so give us a shout. In case we are out on the water ????? call us on Ch 77

I am convinced the weather knows when Bank Holidays and week-ends are due. Great weather all week, come the w/end it all turns to 'shite'!
The prospects are not looking at all good for this coming week-end. Big front coming through on Thursday and Friday.

Friday Travelling

Hi Everyone,

I am travelling down on Friday. I intend to leave Portsmouth about 09:00 and travel down via A303. I hope to be in Plymouth for lunchtime/bar opening hours I think

So if you get a toot from a strange looking bloke in an Ford Escort don't worry it's only me saying hello.

Unfortunately I am not taking Southcoast II. So will be looking to hitch a ride on Saturday please if anyone has space.

I am more than willing to assist in launch & recovery to anyone that wants it.

Charles I will catch up with you on Saturday have spoken with Lee.

Looking forward to a good w/end

Regards
Kevin.
