Slight tweak of plans:

We (Grimalkin: Mrs A and I) are still aiming to be at Ribex for 10 am on Saturday but without Gold Rush (other commitments).

Ferrying of kids also means that we've got to back in Poole by 4.00 pm which leaves Ventnor a bit tight, so are now planning on staying longer at Ribex and having lunch in Cowes (possibly Yarmouth?) with Bogi and his team.

Scurvey Crew (Jonathan) and I are wondering about lunch at Ventnor on Sunday (by when the "Rough" sea state should have moderated to "Slight") and a circumnavigation of the island.

Anybody else interested?

I had fun driving the RYA rib on Friday but it was a big one with twin Hondas on the back so not much the Solent could do to upset it .
quite fast as well ,seems as though there are more expensive ribs there this year liked the look of Gregs Quinquari Humber he has for the round Ireland race very nice .
And the renegade ribs designed by Adam Younger were very well put together and looked the dogs .

Show seemed quieter than previous years although talking to a few sellers it seemed enquiries were up on last year .

At least the weather has been kinder today Saturday for everyone .

The renegade 720 looked great with funky stainless seats On the water they performed well and cornered like it was on rails anyone else try them?
