Solent Social

Just testing the water ( no pun intended ) to see if there's any interest in the odd social in and around the Solent – maybe organised fun days and BBQ’s, meet-ups at festivals like Bournemouth air show to cruises further afield crossing the channel etc ( all of course abiding to rib.net cruising rules )

Is there interest, if so what would skippers and crews like to do, how often and where?

I appreciate on the calendar is the annual Nacho run to Yarmouth and of course the MacMillan round the island but there's plenty of opportunity for more events.

I guess its also reassuring if your slightly nervous about a longer trip having company / buddy boats is never a bad thing.

What do people think?

Definitely interested once I get my choice of boat sorted. I'm at the top end of Chichester Harbour.

+1, actually +2 because my boating buddy only reads posts!

I have a RC berthed at SDS and it would be good to meet up with some fellow ribbers

On my bucket list this year is a trip across the Channel for an overnight stopover

+ another one. Not wealthy enough for dry stack, but usually launch at Camber.

Just looked at your Ribnet profile Lee - sounds like quite a machine you have

Hi Lee

I am based in Eastlands Boat yard on the Hamble, always keen to met up with other Ribbers.

I look forward to catching up with you at some point.

Andy
