No chance - not my scene I am afraid!!!

As to offroading fun remember Labour BAN everything - new bill has been approved in Parliament - now going through Lords which will ban Green laning altogether!!!

OK guys so we have two possible locations

1/ Inverkip

2/ South Wales

There are a few members based at Inverkip - would you guys undertake to organise the conference. as for the dates then of course select the best dates which suits yourselves and then see what the reaction will be from the forum. There is no other way

I can't see any support from any SW members so no point hanging on only lets get on with it.

Cowes is out of the question and specially at the time of Ribex. Anyway there will be a get together cos many of you will come to the show by rib.

I for one will be an exhibitor and at the last Cowes conference only missed out on the fun so not keen on both events at the same time

May I also suggest that if nothing can be agreed by early January 2006 then best forget about the whole thing and stick to locally organised events.
like Littlehampton Cruise ect . We will start a thread on this in January

Hello Andre,

It really depends where you are thinking about as SW..... ie Swansea, Tenby, Milford, St Davids, Fishguard etc... - it's quite a large space.
There's plenty of cruising ground locally, pubs on the river available at certain tides, the islands, jack sound, ramsey sound etc... there are also plenty of places to stay around here too.
Whilst I'd probably try to avoid organisation (purely cos I'm rubbish at that kind of thing) getting B&B / Hotel numbers, recomendations of places to eat, places to visit on water etc... I can get you local info on.

For some local port information @ Milford, goto our well overdue for overhauling recreation site - http://recreation.mhpa.co.uk/index.htm

4th largest port in the uk, and no speed limits until you get a long way up river - not bad really.

-Alex

I think the Milford/pembroke area would be better for this sort of thing - lovely cruising ground and nothing like the tidal probs - it goes out miles in Swansea although there is a good slip that can be used at all states of tide.

Swansea is miles ahead in nightlife etc if you like it wild though!!!

Well got some attention!

Just for the record. I am only the thread starter not an organizer of the RibNet 2006 conference as this must be done by local members. Different if this was to be in LAmpton but it won't be. We will enjoy a cruise and are hopeful that the weather will be better then this year and that more members will participate

From the last posts I can see that SW sounds interesting. Also it is a vast area so local members input is essential.
