Round England/wales start July23rd

Hi
We That is father and son (11years) are planning to go from Berwick upon tweed to Siloth (near Carlise) to complete a round england/wales cruise. We can then plan for Scotland next year (to complete a round brittain) We are not aiming for speed records - just good enjoyable safe cruising. Enjoying the variations in coastline and people along the way.
Friend will bring the trailer back home, after launch, and be available 'on standby' until coming out again at the finish.

2 weeks passout gained from home - with various permutations of plan depending on weather. Aiming for legs of 100+ miles per day. Petrol availability is problematic! Leaving Sunday 23rd July. doing B&B.
I am hoping to meet some of you regular RIB cruisers/posters along the way.
Will\post more as things come together.

Paul

1 week to go

Countdown this week.
try and finish up at work - boat nearly ready, take list at hand, packing commencing.
David Thankyou for your invite to Brixham - I have not been to Brixham since the pier at Torquay burnt down in about 1976! suoer place.
Brixham is in the 'bolt hole' list if the scedule changes.

Now several people want me to post a daily update - but ribs and pc are not compatible yet. So the plan is to allow my wife to post a daily update or bulletin. letting you know how far where to next plus any 'happenings'

What I must learnt from JK is should we create a new logon id for her. she is a bit nervous and thinks we (ribsters) are a bit strange!

plan currently is launch at Berwick upon tweed on sunday 23rd at 13.00
go clockwise - 1st planned stop is Sunderland.

I will prepare a couple or three images of boat and crew for next post
Paul

RIBase
Hi everyone.

I am the guy that is doing the support driving for Paul & Bryn.
I live in Kempston Beds with my wife Sue and our Bull Terrier "Billy" plus lots of fish inside and outside the house!!
We will leave Towcester early Sunday morning sharing the driving and then I need to get the Land rover and trailer back untill they need picking up.

Thats it really, will update with any info I think will be interesting as will Paul and Catherine ( If she plucks up the courage to join in ) lol.
Will try and get some pics on, but not sure of your rules via size etc; yet.

phoenixpete.

P.S. where are the smiley's?

Isle of Man stopover

If you turn up near Isle of Man over w/e of 29/30 July, the national 18's sailing champs are on in Port st Mary, so there'll be things going on over the w/e.

Let us know if you'll be around - I have jerrycans so can help with unleaded (although it's over 1 a litre here before the latest Middle East action)

The Whitings
