Brian, I'm sure I can speak for all and say... you're welcome. Just part of cruising in company. Just one question for you - apart from the fact that we were closer to France than England, what other evidence was there of the net being French?

Here's the net in question:

(BTW the RYA have a prop-fouling hotline/incident report/web page or something similar - it's in their current magazine and in Sportsboat and RIB magazine this month)

You lucky lot!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I could only make part of the Friday. What a weekend weatherwise. I hope you all thought of me on Sunday when I was at work!


Many many thanks also to Simon on Gung Ho for lending me a power pack to start my flat battery... and to Paul Lemmer for introducing us! Nearly had to bump start the thing.

Richard B - Nice to see you flash by in the oposite direction on Friday evening in Blue Ice!

Nice to glimpse you too! Sorry we didn't stop - we were gasping for a drink and had a rendezvous to make. See you soon, hopefully!

Am told that English nets have weights attached to them so when they are partialy discarded, the remaining weight/weights sink the net.

All Fellow Ribsters,

I want to say a "BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE" who were able to attend our 2nd Inagural Ribnet meeting. It could not have been better.

The Weather was perfect, The Solent was at it's usual confussed self.
I hope Wiesia is ok? Andre I would sack your skipper!

You yourselves made the weekend a great success. I THANK YOU.

On Saturday Night I counted 72 people in total in attendance at the Slide Show/BBQ. I am possitive JK would have been pleased; Sorry you missed it John.

I am sure Ribnet will continue to grow into the powerfull forum group that it has already become.

With the vast expanse of knowledge contained with in the forum group's and its members I am possitive that we can all play a part in shaping the future of Rib ownership, for future generations to come.

I for one, have been given the oppurtunity to make new friends; that would not have been possible for it not for Ribnet.

In addititon I have been given an oppurtunity of a lifetime to really experience what it is like to be at the extreme end of the ribbing world; thanks Alan I won't let you down. See you all in Ireland.

I would like to thank everyone for making this weekend such a huge sucess.

My very best wishes to you all

Kevin.

P.S. Plans are being already made for the next gathering; Watch this space

A big thank you to both Kevin and Daniel for making this weekend posible, all of us from Denmark liked the weekend very much.

The treasure hunt was a big success and I do belive that if we hadn't forgotten our papers in the boat, we would have won, we did get all the answers ( I think ).

Thanks to everybody for a great weekend, nice to speak to you all, and thanks to Alan for the saturday night introduction to the round the world trip.

Thanks to Andre for the channel crossing ( Boat/Trailer go free )

I was a really long drive but it was worth it.

Regards
Rene
