It was a good day out and great to see so many Ribs together. Excellent photos Ian, good to see you again although only briefly. it looks like we avoided sunstroke by not going today. I guess there will be many still out on the water as I write. Be careful of the "ultraviolent" out there, stay

Until the next time

What a great weekend ..was good to meet everyone weather wasnt the best saturday but today more than made up for it. nice to see so many differnet ribs together hope everyone had a good time and all got home safe.

A few of us met at the gazelle last night for a few beers which lasted till 12.30 i,m sure Humber Paul and his crew must have drunk a few barrels between them over the course of the day even kerny could not stay the pace with this lot but what a way to end a great day

After a full english breakfast domino and rubber duck (dave p) set of at 10.30 this morning to go round the island stopping at Holyhead for lunch we got back to Menai Bridge at 3.00
this was our 1st time round and it wont be the last what a great runout, sun shades and factor 15 were the order of the day.

I will be working on a video over the next few days which i will post in the rib gallery

After an early start of 09:30 this morning, we met Tony T and Joe, his fellow crew member in the boat yard, after a quick sort out we launched and headed along to the Gazelle to meet with anyone elso who was wanting to come for the Sunday trip.
A phone call showed that we would be the only two boats, as the smaller boats were meeting later on at 11:30 for a smaller trip (I hope they had a good day out on the water too). Attached are a few photos of the mill pond flat water that we were blessed with (so whoever ordered the weather did a good job for Sunday)

We went anti-clockwise and had a great day stopping for lunch at holyhead for lunch for an hour, before finishing the trip.

Hopefully the videos will turn out well and il try and post some when I can.
If anyone wants a full size copy of any of my pictures let me know and il email them to you.

What a day . Cheers to all for coming, and especially TonyT Nitrix and blue thunder for helping keep an eye on others. 18 boats made it to morfa nefyn, after a long lumpy drag from the bar. Fantastic. Tonyand I, together with kerny and Dave Griffiths brought up the rear and got home safely after what was an extreme display of determination and resilience in the lumpy stuff from the latter two, once children and better halves were put on Domino. (including a 4 and 8 yr old who managed to sleep on board a 5m boat whilst being airborne every 20 secs!)

I'm still on the island so no wifi. I'll post tomorrow with a full run down and more photos.

What a fantastic day on the water, 19 ribs in all, and it was great meeting everyone and making new friends. It was only the second time the wife had been out on the rib and she thoroughly enjoyed it and even said that we could do with a bigger rib
