Cheers but we can only come up with an idea and get members motivated. Like proposing a location and date. Then it would be up to the local members and without their input we could not even get it off the ground

so we need the following confirmation

1) Do we want a conference?

if the majority say YES then

2) Where?

3) When?

4) Once location agreed will the local members undertake to organize the event?

Only just read thru this topic...

as previously mentioned Inverkip would be a great place, with a lot of varied options on places to go (+ its only 2mins over the road for me ).

Im willing to help out with anything required, could probably also count on a few other mates, Yellow, Clyde Rib'er and Nick Mcd from this forum to help out.

JK can you help here
No problem. OK, hands up who wants to go?

Seriously though, it's a great place to go ribbing. It's a 500 mile drive from the south coast, but that shouldn't be too big a deal. Alternatively it's a moderately ambitious three days by sea for the more adventurous.

May or June would be a reasonable bet weather wise (probably as good as any other time), but you're not going to please everyone. Why not go for a week and nominate one of the weekends as the "main" event for those who can only make part of it?

What would be good if someone local decides that they want to organise themselves a week's cruising, and invite other people to join them. If they can help other people with the arrangements, so much the better.

If anyone's up for organising it (such as it needs to be organised), then just go for it. At the worst you'll have a week of cruising on your own, you'll probably get a handful of boats coming to join you, and if it really takes people's imagination you may have a major flotilla! If it looks like it's getting big then I dare say that other people can be roped in to organise a meal or help with acccommodation

We are already racing in Dunoon, Pwhelli, France and Belgium (twice), not to mention the trip from Devon to Ramsgate etc .................. so the thought of another 500 mile trip is more than I wish to contemplate at this time of year, so it would have to be REALLY good to make it worth the trip for us!

Do we want another Ribnet meeting ?? I say Yes we do.

Where ? Well I don't care, I have a long drive anyway

When ? Well I would love some nice warm weather, light sun, no rain, no wind but a bit of waves on one side so Wave jumping is posible and no waves on the other side so the wife would like it too
Not a lot to ask .........

Could someone please post some pictures of the Inverkip area, posible with some nice calm water to show the wife.

I'm in for it.

Andre, I don't know about a ferry, but I think that the next ribnet meeting I'm going to plan a bit more time to get there, and I don't mind the drive.

Rene

Rene, it is just under 460 miles on road so not long drive for us the Scandinavians although most Brits will find this distance all way to eternity

By the way I am in your neighbourhood next week
