It is one thing to take the p**s when you are part of something but another to stand outside and p**s all over the folk still there.
Sir Sean is another, "Being a Scot" indeed. When was the last time he lived here!
I personally am Canadian born but since I haven't lived there for over 20 years I can hardly feel justified in telling everyone there how to vote and everything they are doing wrong......
Don't get me started...............
I can see where your coming from there.

Ian, there's many seasons to come, just got to sit the first part of this one out mate. I know what it's like when your health holds you back. Take good care mate and just think of the nurses who'll have to look after you after the next Op

I think another RIBnet gathering up in your part of the world should be put together for later in the season.

We still have a few trips planned for this summer after IOM.
Ullapool early July and orkney Aug. These are definitely on as holidays, ferries and houses booked and paid for!
You could always come along if you are fit by then, especially Ullapool as it is a long weekend trip camping!

We'll be at the slip on Friday and early Saturday for anyone who needs help launching and Sunday evening for recovery. If recovering bigger boats at lowish water, it sometimes takes two trucks to pull them out.

Channel 8 for contact with myself or GED but any of the safety boats will answer to Mustang 1 to 4

The riverbed is sand and stone so back up well away from the trailer before turning. Also beware of the pontoon just yards upriver from the slip. If the current is strong, it's easy to get swept into it if you're slow getting off the trailer.

Can every one arrive with full tanks as there will be no time to fill up in the Marina unless you launch early. Obviously, with a lot of boats to get in, launching needs to be quick and efficent.

The HM has asked us to give regard to the local boats launching. Speed limit in the river is 8 knots.

When we leave the river, we'll be going straight out over the sands which can only be done at high water. All other times you need to use the buoyed channel.

It's then a straight line to Douglas with no hazards enroute apart from the odd ferry. There will be a lead boat and two sweeper boats. If we're on time and all in order, we'll do a rolling start poker run style.

If anyone needs fuel in Douglas, let me know how much by pm.

All we need now is the right weather. If the weather is bad, we'll probably go down the straits for a feast somewhere.

If anyone who wants to go but is boatless, let me know and I'll try and fix something up.
What time do you envisage setting out from Conwy on the sunday for the round anglesey trip. Myself and another member Tim will come up and join you at puffin island if you go anti clockwise. Which way round are you going? As we are by beamaris/menai on the straits.

Probably around 1030-11. Round the island clockwise. Coffee and scones at Naomis in Beaumaris is a favourite stop off of ours.

Anyone who has room for the odd passenger, please let me know by pm.

No-one has pm'd requesting fuel in Douglas so we'll take it that everyone can do the round trip on what they carry.

Not long to go now so I'll post a final briefing soon.

Hi All,

Booked into the Gazelle Friday and Saturday and intending to launch from Menaii or Beaumaris. From reading the earlier posts it looks like it might be more straightforward and cause less congestion to meet a tPuffin Island fro the IOM trip and round Anglesey?

Is there anyone else booked in the Gazelle launching at either slip? If so can we sort a meet time out and then maybe agree to get to Puffin to meet the rest?

I understand sand banks etc can be an issue, so anyone that's familiar here would be a useful person to follow before I knock my skeg off in a fit of over enthusiasm on the throttle

Hi, I'd like to add my thanks for doing all the sorting re this. Any chance you can post details of what/who/where we need to go to register so we can launch without any hassle, or is that just me being lazy? If it is please just tell me to search on't net and I'll sort it

Ta

Launching at Conwy is free and doesn't require registration for this trip. Just have your insurance docs handy if any of the HM staff want to see it. For those launching at Menai, Port Daniel boatyard, which is adjacent to the slip,(see Terry)will do you a tractor launch and look after your trailer for a fee. If you launch yourself, trailer storage is 6. Beaumaris slip is OK but don't know what the charges are for it and the trailer storage is not secure.
