Ribnet conference 2006

We think this is an excellent idea and are keen to join in. We would prefer South Wales as Dylan has suggested but would consider Scotland.

What I really had in mind was a poll indicating locations

say

Inverkip Scotland
South Wales

This will give an idea how many are up for a conference and which location has the majority vote. Once selected then the local members should undertake the organisation.

I only started the thread anyway got the Littlehampton cruise with Phil Chitty to set up cos yes we will be doing one and that will be subject of a seperate thread in January 06

Gary - Thank for the pictures, looking great

Bogi - Your are welcome to give me a shout, the boat is in storage, but we could have a small get together

Andre - DFDS are outrageous when traveling with your boat, if it's more than 6 meters, then it would be better (read a lot cheaper) to drive true france (again).

On the other hand I could "just" launch in "Harbo°re", and then sail direct across the pond.

Will try to be there anyway, to area looks great

Scotland sounds good to me. Can we make it end of may/begining of june cos its our lass's birthday and she'll think im taking her away!!!

I think it would be great to have a mass get together, for me something like Thurs thru till monday. Living on the costa del mansfield it takes me 5.25 hrs of driving to get to bellshill, glasgow with the truck so we aint gonna be far out now iv got TD5 power.

I just need to know in plenty of time so our transport manager dont get snotty

If you want to do South Wales I can help out as much as possible locally - 2 marinas on the haven so there shouldn't be too much berthing issues, plus a fair few free use slipways.
Accomodation is ok locally, both camping, B&B's, hotels etc... (the hotels aren't 5 star I don't think tho).

Only snag down here is weather which would work either to some peoples benefit (ie lots of fun) or others annoyance - get a good SW come in, and the wavelets in the solent will look like ripples

If the tides are right, and nice and high, it is possible to get up river as far as navigable to a couple of pubs in the evening. Even if really rough outside, there is still a good few miles of river to burn off some fuel on.

Nice calm water off Kip

Here, taken from my window at Toward Point (across Clyde from Kip), Isle of Bute in the foreground with Arran beyond. Know some great spots as this is quite lterally my backyard!

Whatever happened to tough hairy arsed ribbers then? Whats wrong with tents? A great camping spot with plenty safe mooring/anchoring at the Burnt Islands at the top of The Kyles of Bute.

Regards
Cameron
