How come you are not taking Tory Rascal Willk?

Want a lift?

It would be great to meet up with everyone again on IOM and have a few wet ones in the bar alongside the marina again.

Anyone else up for it out of Ardglass?
Tonymac,
I'm contemplating taking th trip for the day, weather permitting, for the races. You recommend Ardglass, to where, Ramsey, Peel or kirk michael even(if theres boat access at kirk) ?

This is a first for me so keen to hook up with floatilla with regards to there and back (hopefully) birthing, etc and anything else that may cause the return with one less bike enthusiast.

Look forward to hearing of any plans

Nick

We are going to be running to Douglas due to only have access to most ports 2.5h either side of high water. I think Peel is ok, but its the wrong side for us.

Regards
Simon

We are running into Douglas as well, the main event seems to be there with the paddocks etc.
Possibly two RIB's going from Oban leaving Isle of Whithorn at the moment.

Brought our RIB down from Loch Fyne yesterday, taking advantage of the weather window Average speed was 22 knots (9 hours), even with three stops (two for fuel, one for a cuppa). All ready for the Isle of Man on the 4th See people there.

So I hear, the rain and wind have to stop sometime..........
I haven't been abe to get the boat back together since its trip to Humber as it literally hasn't stopped raining for any longer than 30mins for the last three-four weeks.
I got the console stuff all done yesterday and today by buying one of these, don't be fooled by the dry ground, those grey clouds are just about to burst, again!

What you want to do is rig those legs to the tubes and bingo instant cabin rib.

Was in Largs today, could just about manage to stand up in the wind.

That an A frame on the boat now? You know it makes sense.
