Anyone interested doing this from South Wales? Slips at Swansea, Burry Port and Tenby areas.
Possibly meet off Carmarthen bay and then rendezvous with group from the English side of the channel, anyone interested this side of the channel? Weather permitting

Hi

Wont be able to make it this weekend, will try again probably now in September, as no working Rib.

boat broke down off IOW yesterday, had my first tow, and abandoned rib at bembridge, and did our own version of 'planes, trains and automobiles' to get home.

Yam HPDI's are great when they work but hard to work out where the problem really is....

Anyone fancy a lundy trip this year? Late spring /early summer. Most likely camp on the island a couple of nights. Head from Appledore.

Will do! Just to expand on the trip, I am planning on doing the trip in an aerotec 420 which at the end of the day is a sib, albeit one of the better performing ones. So it'll be a short notice trip as I'll be scanning the weather and surf forecasts for the best window. Out of school holiday/bank holidays it's not usually necessary to book the campsite any further ahead than 24 hours. The boat will be 2 up and I'll probably be making no more than 15 mph with us and the camping gear and fuel.

So if you are ok with dawdling along then great! I will scan the local tide book and pick out a list of Fridays & Saturdays with a.m. High tides.

Cheers

Simon

No problem, I have a couple of people who want to do some sea cliff climbing there who want to come along too. The problem for me has always been a) not having done it before so being apprehensive about taking others who have not been on a rib before and b) getting the organisation surrounding camping etc sorted out!
