Hahaha. T. M. I.


Very practical idea for keeping your hands warm from Kinsale to Aber.

Good luck with the planning all of you ...and for a worthy cause

Just a reminder about this great rib run

There are about 16 boats taking part so far, and we are keen to have more

If you are interested in doing some all or part of the trip, or just coming to Aber with your rib, to see them off on the Sunday. Let me know and I can send you details about accomodation etc.

Currently it still looks like its going ahead weather wise, will update regarding the weather nearer the time.

Yep, my boss left work this early this evening to head down to Kinsale, to say I'm jealous would be an understatement!! He'll be the guy getting sick over the side of the red diesel 8m Excalibur Force 4/5 winds are forecast so it should be a bit of craic!!

Good luck to all, take plenty of pics!! Fuel tank capacity has stoppped me from making the trip this year but plans to rectify that are already in progress for next yrs trip!!

We Are Back !!

Sore , but intact

We had a magic weekend in Wales.....many many thanks to the RNLI boys in Aber. They know how to party
I'll try and get a few pics up this evening, i've got to go now and earn a few bob to pay the bar bill.

Yes , we did have a MOB, fortunately all the safety systems we had in place worked and he was recovered rapidly. Dislocated his shoulder on the way out, went to hospital, put it back in, then jumped on a plane to Wales..... thats commitment
