Gary gee, Hawkerj, MeMe, Ribster Rache, Tony B,Graham H etc.

Hey its looking good for at least a dozen ribs for the Chester invasion.
Hope the weather holds up. For those with smaller boats, don't worry if there's a bit of chop, there's plenty of support around and the bigger ribs can't go too quickly on the way up to Chester or they will run out of water!
I guess it would be wise to meet up before launching commences so all can be briefed on sandbanks etc. and best way over the weir. Will post times etc soon

Looking forward, let's just hope the weather is kind to us. This is our first trip with other rib net members so will be interesting to meet you all.

luncvh on the 12th

I've checked out the 'Boathouse' for lunch. The manager has agreed to let us tie up and leap into the beergarden from the river! I have a copy of lunch menu, the idea being that we phone in our orders prior to setting off so they can have it ready on arrival
If the weather is just about reasonable, ie a bit blowy and raining, we are still going. Gales and blizzards, forget it
If any of you have partners/family members who fancy the Chester bit, but without the boat, ample parking at the pub...come and join us for lunch.

Confirming arrangements

Hi folks
I'm hoping to firm up arrangements tonight so will post up details over the weekend.
For those of you who are definately coming (if the weather holds up), could you pm me with contact numbers. We don't want to leave anyone behind for the sake of a few minutes delay but don't want to hang around if you aint coming
Phil

Deetox - how much water will there be over the weir when you are planning to cross it?

Not sure whether we will be able to make it, but just in case!!

Hopefully enough. We've done it a couple of times on similar tides in a 6m rib.
We will check it out when we get there 'cause you can never guarantee conditions.
If it's iffy for the larger boats, we will probably anchor/tie up by the road bridge, downwater from the weir and either hitch a lift with the others or walk the couple of hundred yards to the pub.
Suggest we all meet by 9.30am at the sailing club slip. Space to park up trailers but none-members need to park cars on the prom. Remember one-way system! We need to be togged up with boats/trailers ready for tow-out by 10.00am latest

Greetings each,

Cyas all bright and early on Saturday
