Great day on the beach with various dead animals and fish being cremated, sadly the Garfish is no more he has been eaten well apart from the bones which were green but more from Matt and Liz on that.

The beach was flat calm but once clear of the IOW a nasty Solent chop waited for those on the homeward trip ensuring a good soaking in the F5.

Sadly what was once a sandy beach is now gravel, seems the storms of late have piled gravel up on the Ribnet softball ground. Guess we will have to go and check it out again next year.

Martin was busy doing scary rides on a yellow thing that resembled a large lilo and Martin H won the Barnacle award for the boat with the greatest weed growing on it. Someone suggested turning it over and using a lawnmower.

Kath was busy all afternoon practising chemistry and producing molatov cocktails to drink. Tasted superb but drink more than one would have had a interesting effect.

Lots of folk camping this year and looks like they had a calm night on the beach.

Pete and Viv

What a great day, shame the sand has gone from such a lovely spot in the Solent, hopefully it will return. We had a relatively slow bumpy ride back in the 4m I had managed to borrow which had us all groaning from time to time. Glad certain parts of my body have reurned themselves back into their normal postion now .

Had a cool time, good to see a lot of ribs, and well done Paul for getting up out of the water on those ski's of yours.

We had a great time.

Huge thanks from Gill and myself to Kathleen and Paul for the lift across to the IOW.

A big ta very much to Martin from Gill....the rocket powered Lilo was a hoot.

Huge thanks to Sarah and Richard for the lift home again.

Good to see some familiar faces and to meet the ones not so familiar.

The impromptu camp site on the edge of Bembridge harbour looks excellent.

Was a great day.

Thank you to Kath and Paul for the organisation.

The little Nashers enjoyed being in the water most of the afternoon for the first time this year and only realised on the way back how cold they had got.

Good to see all the usual suspects, and meet some new faces.

The trip back to Chichester harbour was a little rough, but nothing we couldn't handle. Even Mrs Nasher appeared to enjoy it!

Shame we had the school fete/sports day today otherwise we'd have stayed over for camping, maybe next year.

Come on Chris, spill the beans, looks like a collapsed bearing on the Starboard side. Hope you got home in time to enjoy part of the day.

The Nasher Clan.

A good weekend many thanks to Kathleen for organising this one. I slept well this time. Took some ear plugs to kill the sound of the lapping waves.
I must admit I was suprised to hear that it was rough on the way back on the Saturday, shows how easy it is to be decieved. Sunday morning was beautiful if a little chilly at sea.

1) Getting ready to go.

2) Mid Solent Meet.

3) RIBNET Convoy.

4) Landing RIBNET style.

5) A gaggle of Ribs at Priory Bay.

NR.
