The yachts go west first and travel anti- clockwise starting at regular intervals from 0500 to about 0900. I would not see a problem running clockwise, or with the fleet as I can see Whisper is not running a race so sightseeing at slower speeds in the main fleet areas. I agree we have seen some heavy seas over recent RTI races with many maydays, but would this RIB fleet run the Island if such weather prevailed?

And just to add to the above, I really don't want to have any accidents or to see anyone get hurt, so I say let them have their day and we can have ours on Sunday 26th May

Alex, not trying to steal your thread, but I think someone has to say it - are we going to have a few Ospreys together on the day

Could we do the week after the RTI instead? It'll give me a bit more time to finish the boat.

Matt no it is not especially if the mony did not change hands with the boat owner but went instead direct to the charity !!

Suggested seat donation payable to our Just Giving Page http://www.justgiving.com/ribnet or the Macmillan Collection Cans on the day is 25 but we will leave this up to your conscience

Suggested date is the 26th May 2013 but may move due to the weather

I agree, not too happy about dodging round 2000 sailing boats on June 1st!
Rather keep to a small number of ribs enjoying a day out?
I have 2 dates in mind-April 20th & May 18th, anyone up for this?

But...but...but...I've got a bright orange airsoft M16 and some combat trousers...

Spoilsport



But seriously...

I think Whisper's date is pretty much spot on-we really should do it while kids are on holiday. We can stop and harass people on the beaches for donations then Did anyone say Osborne Bay...?
