Eugene,

Thank you for all your help with the refuelling this weekend, and the kind hospitality of the sailing club. A great welcome and a great trip.

Thanks to everyone for a great weekend, really good fun.

Hope to see more pics.

Dave

Nice to see everyone who turned out Saturday/Sunday.
I've put some pics in the RIB Gallery.
Thanks to Jono for organising. Thanks to Dave for the ride!
Bet everyone slept well Sunday Night, I went out like a light.

Hi all,

It was good to meet with you on Sunday. You had great weather for the trip as seen on the video links. Watching the ribs leave the harbour I was tempted to cast off and follow.
It seems Jono wanted another look at the wind turbines on his way back.

Glad that I could help out shoreside.
Arklow Sailing Club is a small informal club that encourages all water activities and welcomes visitors. Visit www.arklowsc.com

Now that you know the way over don't hesitate to visit again.

Cheers

Eugene

How to give a girl a good time

Take her away for a long weekend, ridin horse for about 300miles in sunshine(well apart from the fog) with 14 guys for company, what more can a girl wish for!!!

We had a great time, absolutely shattered at end of it though !!

Thanks to Jono for having the idea and putting on the BBQ and thanks to Ian for the ride on Sunday.

Hope to see you all again soon
Gill and Phil (Cookie)

Great day

Big thanks to Jono and Eugene

Coast to coast in 58mins on the way back, great fun, but very dry fuel tanks!

I'm guessing that would be about 200-220 litres then?

Fuel

Probably just under 200 litres.

Will know for sure when I fill it back up (which I should have done in Ireland!)
