Big thanks to Kevin and Daniel for organising the weekend - I had a great time!!! It was really good to meet up with everyone and get to know people. Hope to see you all on the water again soon!

Excellent weekend
Many thanks to Kevin and Daniel for your efforts. First time round the island for me and it was a great trip. Made all the more fun with the humour of Phillipe and Flo from france who accompanied us

Shame we forgot a pen for the treasure hunt but we got all the answers right - honest!

Nice to put names to faces and hi to all those I didn't get to speak to.

Inspiring talk from Alan.

Kev and Daniel - you gave us a weekend to remember! Thanks for the efforts that you put into organising it all.

As always, great to put more names to faces (Bilge Rat, we will always appear when you least expect us... like at St Albans Head. Remember, no-one expects the Spanish Inquisition!) Andy/thorper/ricky - spotted you at a distance but didn't get chance to say hello. Rene - good to meet you, sorry we didn't get chance to talk more.

Thank god we got rid of that TIM bloke before he wrecked our boat!! (Only joking Tim!!! it was a pleasure to have you on board).

We also experienced very pleasant hospitality aboard Timboli from Paul, Sue and Tim - thanks for joining us on the Treasure Hunt and "cleaning up"!!

Well, unfortunately we can't report that the trip was incident free, but Kevin (Ageing Youth) did get an opportunity to do some "training" for extreme RIB expeditions. But all home safely now!

A big "thank you" to Kevin & Daniel for the excellent weekend. Good to meet up with old friends (Stuart even remembered my name ) and to meet lots of new ones.

Even more faces to "recognise" whilst on duty in Pompey. Pity Matt wasn't there I may have to "commandeer" Old Spice for extra special duties

Thanks to Bogi for the info on blue lights (and not for Xmas decorations SC )

Thanks to AP for the talk - almost as good as the last time I heard him

Hope you all got home safetly and looking foward to "catching" up with you all on the water.

You're welcome Tim - it was a pleasure to meet you - We are having another look at the hull in our workshops today, although I think we may have the reason behind our problem - I'll let you all know when we have it confirmed.

No problem, we tried to get around people also but got too drunk and it all fell apart!!! Very good weekend and even crashing on the deck of the boat in bags rather than use the hotel has inspired us.

Sorry not to catch up with you on Sunday John K, I wanted to thank you for RIBnet, as without it we would not have all have been together at the weekend pouring petrol into the sea, having fun and getting drunk! To show my appreciation I have subscribed as a Gold Member. I urge the rest of you to do also, so that we ensure RIBnet lives on and not at John's expense.

Thanks Kevin and Daniel!!

Get 'em both onto three!

And if you haven't done so already, may I suggest that now is the time to "green-blob" Aging Youth and Daniel in appreciation for the weekend's activities.

I too would like to add my thanks to the lists above.
In addition I want to thank the crew and skippers of Blue Ice and Top Banana (and AY of course), for making a plan in Alderney AND STICKING TO IT.
For those of you who dont know, Awesome Explorer ran over a discarded, large French fishing net floating under the surface. This took one of its drives out. Monday morning saw us start on a 70nmile leg back across at 8knots max. on the remaining leg.
We agreed that the other two boats should start 3 hours after us, run along our course line and RV mid-channel-ish to check on our progress, assist and escort us if necessary.
This plan took them well away from their inrtended course and destinations.
Nevertheless they both showed up, exactly on course, with us plodding along. A welcoming site. So thaanks Guys and Gals. You did good!
