Sundry trip to Arklow

Work means I can't make it over on Saturday, but will be there on Sunday to get to Arklow.

So as not to slow things down is there any plan for pairing similar boats up before our early start.

Alternatively is anyone thinking about going from the Anglesey side, (Chris's slip at Caernarfon).

Thanks

David

Arklow Visit

Hi All,

I have spoken with Arklow Sailing Club and the Commodore Paul Barrett would like to welcome rib crews and offer the facilities of the club to those taking part in the rib run. The bar will be open and tea and coffee will be available.

Bridgewater Shopping Centre recently opened on the north quay and has O'Briens Sandwich Bar, Eddie Rockets fast food outlet and a Food Court etc.

I will be on the quay with some club members who can help with refuelling.

Eugene

Sounds good Eugene - Thanks!!!

Are there any small RIBs going out on Saturday, (I'm 3.5m with 25hp)?

I'm joining David Griffiths on Sunday but don't want to be stuck ashore on Saturday. Having said that, I don't want to hold anyone back by being too slow, and definately wouldn't make it anywhere near New Quay anyway.

Jono,

As Andy mentioned to me, did you need your passport when you went over last?

Cheers!

Thanks to all for a cracking weekend (No pun intended, Anglesey Dave!).
It was great to meet you all.

Thanks especially to Ian and to David Griffiths for the ride.
