Just arrived back from a weekend involving the Rib round Cardigan Bay, then today delivery of same Rib to Conwy in prep. for next week.
The delivery went well. The trip out yesterday didn't!
We bought a landrover last year to launch and recover. This has been great and performed well. However, it appears that this vehicle has become a mother. Five chicks in a well built nest sat atop the engine manifold!!!
Being a caring type I was all for picking them up and throwing them as I believe blackbirds are supposed to fly. It was suggested I didn't do this by many folk on the site as they may die.
It was them dying or me not boating. What could I do? R.I.P.

Only joking, I caved in and let them live. They had better be gone in two weeks though, and I told them so, otherwise.....

Gary and Dave. I suggest we meet in Douglas. Whoever arrives first waits for the others so we know everyone is accounted for.

Matt. I expect you to drive on mine. Shift work outward for sure.

Hi Ian
Meeting in douglas with a check list for any stragglers sounds a good idea.
I've lost the plot (as usual). Are most camping for sat night do we know? I am organising an forageing party into No1 sons bedroom to attempt to find the tents. Not a place you would want to go into without good reason and an up to date tetanus injection.
Dave

Dave,
Half are camping and half are 'posh'. We're in tents, they are in the Hilton!

Those from Conwy meet at Conwy slip at 0800 approx. Remember to bring your boat insurance with you. We will leave 0900 approx (all times BST) with an ETA in Douglas 1200.
This allows the afternoon in Douglas and pitching the tents.
Saturday evening social in Douglas, waiting to hear from Whitingiom if the yachties will allow us ribsters into the YC. If not there must be a pub there with a beer garden, the weather will be stunningly hot and calm.
Sunday, early(ish) start and cruise south round the Calf of Man then up to Port Erin. Maybe anchor up here for a spot of lunch and snorkeling?
Head back round the Calf and stright back to Conwy. Arriving back at fairway approx1700. If you are going to Fleetwood don't follow the rest of us!
Hope this sort of agenda suits, but if not we can make it up when we get there.
We will all meet up at the harbour in Douglas before setting off for the town. Dave and Ged, phone the HM before leaving Fleetwood so he knows to expect you and can put us all together in the harbour. Douglas HM 01624 686628 then through a recorded message list before selecting the number to talk to a real person!

Excellent job Ian - ever fancied a career move to the travel industry?

We haven't made this trip yet! Got a few more ideas up my sleeve, but one step at a time eh?

Yacht Club

Of course you can come in the Yacht Club!

It was previously the Douglas Bay Motor Boat & Cruising Club, so there are plenty of motor users.

If you're feeling brave, you could try 'The Quay' - there are about 8 or 9 watering holes within a mile of the YC.......quite a challenge.

I haven't heard back from the Commodore if there's any food or entertainment on Saturday, but I suspect that the barbeque on the balcony will be going as long as it's not raining.

I've been watching the forecast - doesn't look too bad....

Jon

Weekend weather

Saturday 28 June to Friday 4 July

I expect the high pressure to persist in most parts of the country right through this week, although by the end of the week the high will have moved off to the east. This will allow south to southeasterly winds to develop across the country with an area of low pressure to the west of Ireland.
So for the weekend it looks set fair with plenty of warm sunshine just about everywhere.

During the week, much of England, Wales, central and eastern Scotland will stay dry, very warm and sunny, but in the far south of England there is a chance, as it turns increasingly humid, that a few thundery showers could develop. Towards the middle of the week these storms could become more widespread and perhaps threaten most of southern England.

From midweek, the high pressure could start to decline and move away eastwards allowing more unsettled weather, with thundery showers, to push into Northern Ireland and western Scotland, whereas much of eastern Scotland and eastern England will stay dry and very warm.

This was taken from the BBC weather page http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/ and looks good at this stage for the weekend. More detailed reports will be posted as we get nearer the date.

No problem if they are with mums & dads and are well behaved (ha ha).

There is a no smoking bar as well.

My lot are 15, 12 & 5 and they seem to manage.....
