Swinton Worsley

Hi Graham, Graeme here....... It's a small world, I'm only in Worsley. Both Ian and myself are in Abersoch most weekends, another pal (well we let him think we like him) Jono lives and works in Abersoch so there's always someone out and about. Let us know when you fancy doing something and we'll (Ian) will organise a weekend out. Abersoch is a great place to launch and the Bay area offers some great 1 day cruising.

p.s Dry suits are for southern jessies (Phil) !!!

Yup, they sure are. Alive, comfortable, enjoying our RIBing.

But seriously, we picked three of our friends out of the sea last weekend. One (who'd been in the water longest) was in mild shock and in risk of becoming a real casualty. Have you seen the difference in survival times, in the sea, between ordinary wet weather gear and a drysuit? It makes very sobering reading.

If you're planning winter RIBing, either get in touch with Matiboy on this forum (if you're a skinflint) or Ravenspring (if you want top quality and value) or Musto (if price is irrelevant).

Dry Suits

Yea Richard I'm with you, Dry Suits are a must, I'm only pulling the leg of a pal (Phil - from Essex) who takes the mick out of me in my Musto gear. I must admit I have yet to get a drysuit and have simply been wearing my sailing gear up until now. I'll no doubt make a purchase this winter.

p.s Thanks to all for the Birthday wishes, very humbling !
