The dates for Easdale RIB Rendezvous are published and confirmed as Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2013. With the RIB tourism season drawing to a close we will take a few weeks rest and then get the event organisation underway. We have a skeleton of a plan, we need to put some of the finer detail in place. We need to visit a couple of old, remote jetties, sort out timings and publication of material.
We appreciate there seems to be a number of Oban events. We welcome them all. Each has its aims and objectives. Those of the Easdale RIB Rendezvous include we welcome everyone whether your RIB is large or small. Bring the family, come on your own, stop for a dive, you don’t have to come on the proposed cruise. Just be safe and enjoy your RIB.
Easdale is the focal point with a good sheltered harbour, a couple of pubs, accommodation and the offer of local information. The date of the first Bank Holiday in May was selected as it helps the local community extend the tourist season. A date later in the year could bring accommodation and refreshment issues. Easdale’s late September event is The World Stone Skimming Championships.
The area is a massive playground for RIBs. There is space for everyone. We hope everyone enjoys their stay. If the ScotRIB event wishes to include Easdale in their itinerary it would be great to see you all. Whatever the time of the year all RIBs are welcome to pull into Easdale Harbour either for a short stop or use it as a base for a holiday.
