Anglesey circumnavigation record? A RIBnet member?

I was reading the below article and surely someone on here with a decent boat can put a new time in for this! Beautiful place to drive round, i'm attempting it in the next couple of weeks.....though i certainly can't break the record.

Would be great publicity for the forum.

The article below shows the boat that did it only had a 250hp 4 stroke on 7.6m rib.

One of you guys who have spent some well earned money on a quality rib must think you can take the trophy? Put the boat to good use!

Been waiting for something like this to crop up, I think I'd like to have a go at this one 'boyo'. What do I have to do to give it a go?

Diolch yn fawr iawn

how to enter

http://www.hotribs.com/03press/246-r...d/anglesey.asp

Go to this link and it gives all the contacts, rules etc for the attempt

Would be even better to organise a couple or a few boats trying it at once. I'd certainly like to see it!!

IIRC, the record is held by Ian Greenwood & Dave. GED had a support role I think? It was done in Ian's boat, Blackjack. Ian is also a member here - not sure if he still reads the forum though.

Thought it would be a member holding the record. Still......has no one challenged it since Feb 2007? Surely it ought to be!

Any takers?
