North West RIBsters

Several years ago some RIBsters used to meet to talk about future RIB events in the North West of the country and generally enjoy a beer together from time to time. After many requests to meet again from veteran and new RIBsters, Kevin Goulding has booked a room at a suitable watering hole to meet again. At this first meeting Kevin will put on a short 'Slide Show' about an adventurous RIB Trip to Alaska to start the ball rolling.

Anyone interested should contact Kevin on 01606 41448 day, or 01606 892800 eve for further information and directions if required, a small map can be posted on request. Bar food available.

Venue: The Chetwode Arms - Higher Whitley, on the A49 in mid Cheshire. Date: Thursday 6th March 2003. Time: 7.15pm for 7.30pm start.

NB: small charge to cover room hire.

If you ever consider a trip to the Isle of Man, look me up.

I can provide tide times, mooring details, good B & B's etc.

And if I ever save up enough for a bigger boat........

Hi folks

Glad to see there is more life in the North West

Got a few trips planned this year but only have approx dates at present, need to link in with school holidays.

Milford Haven to Fleetwood, Late April/early May ish prob a bank holiday, poss a two day trip stopping over in north wales.
First trip for the new RIB bringing her home

Isle of Man somtime in July, prob late July for long weekend.
Likley end up a a round IOM trip.

Fleetwood to Milford Haven Early August
Milford Haven to Fleetwood Late August (Taking boat on holiday for 2 weeks)

Ireland, prob late Sept but to be confirmed if I have enough days holiday left.

Also I fancy a big trip next year if anyone is mad enough to join me. My first thought was up to Scotland and a quick hop across to Iceland, the other idea was across to Norway, Anyone interested ?. Just need to convince the famaily to join me.


I will put actual dates once I have them but anyone is welcome to join me if they wish. May even have room on the boat on some of the trips.

Will try and make the meet up Kevin would be nice to put some faces to names. Will confirm but count me in for now.

Regards Gary

Roll on the summer !! (and my new RIB)

but we do it all yr round up here lad
Well some of us do - we've been out at least once every month this winter (and every other winter since Noah was lad) not just working but also a cruise or two, some fishing and getting some photos in, but I don't see any other ribs out here except ours (and our c/g boat or the Atlantic 75 lifeboat). They seem to all disappear around the end of sept. Hurry up with that new boat Gary, we need some company out here!
