Up the Dee to Chester

Feb 12th 10.00ish on West Kirby slip (Wirral). Tow out to moorings and on the water 10.30ish. It's a 10m tide, high water 13.30 so the aim is to follow the bore up the Dee over the weir and tootle about, pub lunch, shopping (ladies ) and a good blast back for recovery 15.00.
Great company, good fun....what's stopping you?

A pal of mine.......

.........who lives on the Wirral (Simon Wickens) mentioned that one of his pals (Tom Price) was doing something very similar in Feb, is it the same cruise ? If so, I may just be interested if I can get my pal to launch his 4.8. If not I'd have to drag mine back from Abersoch.

It may well be, the 'Rib Rally' has been running for some years and involves all the local sailing clubs (ie their ribs!) when not otherwise in service, plus a collection of NW Ribsters. old sea dogs and general nutters who don't feel the cold anymore

12th Feb

We have always wanted to try this trip and are very interested. We are however a bit concerned about the launching and recovery at West Kirby. Do we need to be or, will there be some 4 wheel drives or tractors to help?

Sailing club tractor will be doing the business, it may be because of the amount of interest that we will have to bring the time forward to 9.30 so all the boats can be towed out!
Details to be confirmed such as launch fee / contribution to club funds??

I keep an eye out for the arrangements.

Tony.

Great if you could make it Graham with your 7yr old. About the same age of maturity that the rest of us exhibit
