You may have to join another forum to get PROPER smilies, most of ours are just plain rude.

I picked Zubenelgenubi because its a big word!
It is star # 57 in HMSO Nautical Almanac for celestial navigation.
Zubenelgenubi is the second brightest star in the constellation of Libra.
See, you learn something new every day!

Thanks Knot Yet, it would appear I was being too simple - improper smilies are good too.

I am learning loads, also had to look up 'Zabaglione' to make sure I wasn't going mad - it wasn't what I thought it was but still looks quite nice:

'Zubenelgenubi' is a very cool name, must be a bit of a nightmare if you have to spell it out on the radio though (assuming it's your boat name and you didn't go to that much effort just for a forum name!)

Zubenelgenubi is a bit long for a boat name & phonetically it would take ages on the radio.
Ive gone with "Revillagigedo" instead!

Well I had no idea that our Zubenelgenubi was even remotely related to a pudding - so have also learnt something

I'm thinking May time - perhaps the first Mayday bank holiday?

Open to other suggestions and of course experience of more local Ribsters - what do you think??

J (getting very excited about something not yet happening!!)
I like the sound of this one.Count me, and possibly two [civilians] in.Always thought that whole region would be GREAT for cruising!So who has got the local knowlege,photos ect??
