glad everyone got home safely and that was a long long day for you steve, you guys must have been really tired.

glad everyone enjoyed the trip round the island was my second trip round so was good to do it in such great company and a nice group as adds to the fun.

As being the first large cruse i had set up i was not sure just how much to organise, as wanted to get folks round the iow and then leave folks to make their own plans for the rest of the day and keep an element of flexibility as some would prefer to sit on a beach and others in a pub, some would get off early and others would stay late.

so limited the organising of this trip to:

Suggesting slipways,
Location for meet
times to start,
direction and took it from there

for future trips, especially if the numbers are so large will give a time and destination for eats and other key milestones along the way, so that folks can make a choice as to how they want to spend the day. but also if folks are late they can join in also. was consious that when we got to yarmouth a lot of people split up to get a beer and refreshments and it was difficult to relay the beach we had choosen.

One idea suggested was ......it would also be good that for other trips if folks post a pic of their boat and them (if not too shy) so that it helps everyone recognise who everyone is!!!!

I will post a few more trips during the summer and anyone is welcome to join in as its nice to get such a diverse crowd from across the country enjoying the solent and other areas. Many Many people have said that we need more trips arranging so folks can join in and meet other ribbers.

so for this year will be arranging the following outings

trip to alum bay/needles end of July
trip to cornwall for a week in the falmouth area in august
trip to scilleys in august leaving from penzance if we get a weather window
trip to lyme regis for a weekend in august
trip to pembroke/south wales in august
trip down the thames in sept for a london cruse
another trip round the iow before we lose the good weather

places i am interested in visiting but not sure if i can squeeze them in this year are....
Ramsgate/herne bay areas
poole/christchurch area
plymouth area
ipswich area
watchet north somerset area

want to make the most of the good weather

Which boat and time was it - the cat. or the dory? Doubt it was me as I only tell peeps to slow down when they are really taking the p**s. (like 25 knots past No 3 bouy on Sunday am. )

There has been an issue with wash recently and I suspect, at 5 knts you were kicking up a nice wake which may have attracted attention. (Yes, I know that RIB's going fast leave no wash but the boss makes the rules)

tis nice of you to say that, but all we did was start a thread regarding a trip we wanted to make, hoping a few folks would come along!.

It is all the people that come along, mucked in, helped out, some travelling 100's of miles that made the day so enjoyable. The big thanks is to all of them

Glad you all had a good time. I didn't get out till 1500 hrs so just took a quick spin to Nab Tower. The sea was fantastic. Saturday wasn't as good so you certainly picked the right day. may we have many more this summer. Well done Hugh.
By the way did anyone pop into the new bar at Priory bay. Its open to the public and sells bottles of becks for £3 a go. Burger and chips is listed at £10.
