As Pete says, the shirts went down a treat at the Folly, I put the box down and within minutes Guiness tops were everywhere. Hope the trip back went OK, and the new RIB continues to please. If you are ever in the Solent area again, give us a shout.

Sorry we were late and missed the fun of joining the pack and blasting together to Cowes. Must say not having to go round Selsy Bill and only to Chichester Marina had made a change.

Nice pictures hope to catch up with you next time

Firstly a huge thank you from Gill and me to Richard 'very Nauti Buoy' for a cracking trip on your superb rib. HUGE THANK YOU.

Secondly, thanks IanM for the test drive too, an extremely nice rib that.

Third, thank you to everyone for a great day (and evening) out, we both had immense fun.

Here are just a few of the pictures what I took. There are a few of the evening in the Folly but I will leave those for another time.

Sorry I didn't make it for the run. Got the new pride & joy in the water at about 0900, but hadn't realised just how feckin big she was going to be on a trailer! Having discussed tides and lymington slip with some of you guys, it quickly became obvious that we'd either have to come in by about 12.30 or wait until after 5. With a loooong road back to Fishguard I felt it best to take the earlier option and set off with a decent amount of daylight ahead of me. We did manage a blast up towards Southampton before coming in and did have a great time, but was hugely looking forward to the folly and all that (no doubt) went with it!
Glad that the Guinness tops found good homes (thanks Ian M) and nice to know that the people on RibNet are just as helpful in real life as they have been on these boards over the past months.

[QUOTE=Peter J;191082] Back home now. It was a bit lumpy in the solent, got a bit of a soaking.

Nice to meet all of you that I did meet and put faces to the names.

Many thanks to Paul and Kathleen for making me so welcome.

Totally agree Peter. Great day out and the return trip mid afternoon was quite exciting. Fortunately I managed to position my Mother in Law to shield me from the worst of the weather so all worked out ok in the end!

Good to meet some new people and my youngest daughter Vicky
is still telling anybody she meets about winning the prize for being the youngest there! We're now looking forward to the beach bbq later in the summer.

Cheers. (and some photos)
