Daniel (and others),
This is my current thinking (blue sky (sic) only at this stage though).
The rib.net get together is scheduled for Plymouth on Sat/Sun 10/11 May.
After a good nights sleep, we could set off for Ireland and spend the whole of the next week over there.
We would get back to Plymouth say Sat/Sun 17/18th.
IF, IF, IF, Gavin and Tim come over by boat, this might allow us to escort them back over to Kinsale/Cork.
Just a thought.
Would you please e-mail me with a very brief description of your details.
I did do this last year for the Hebrides Cruise and found, signed-up and got along famously with a smashing bloke called CEEJAY who posts sometimes on this forum, so it does work!
The main thing to do is to ask yourself whether you would want to spend 10 days with this person in a small boat!!
Think carefully before you answer!!
