Rally

The Chelsea girls made it to Deauville in style!! The rally was one of the most unbelieveable adventures of the year with adrenalin on full flow throughout! We had the time of our lives and are pleased to report that it was a complete and utter success - no injuries or serious problems, just super happy participants. It couldn't have been better. We're definitely on for next year and by all accounts so are most of the entrants this year. Thank you to all who supported the event and I hope we've proved that despite some minor negative responses to the possibility of such an event, not only can it be done, but with great success! BIG THANKS to Ed and the other organisers!
By the way, all the teams, including Rupert's, made it excellently.We can't wait for Deauville Rally 2006 and hope to see some of you there.

They have just posted saying what a great time they had. They were out in a Rib for the first time on a longish trip and really enjoyed it.

Can't you be pleased for them?

Iím not bitter I just hate people trying to manipulate me and I have got spin fatigue from people promoting Ďfantastic eventsí that are far from fantastic
These Chelsea girls sound faker than a very fake thing and sound so stereo typical of who they claim to be they have to be fake and even if they are not fake they should do the world a favour and become fake before someone starts believing in them
15 boats is hardly what the organises said would happen and as for Elton John buying a RIB, although a bloody funny thought, is so far from reality it is ridicules

If you think this was the best adrenalin rush all year you should get out more and stop trying to spin this into something it isnít

Still Jolly hockey sticks, chin-chin and all that donít you know. Spiffing good news, wouldnít want to let Ed down now would we Des

Scary Des, We're sorry you aren't quite in the spirit of things, but you really should try and loosen up a bit. No one is trying to "manipulate" you - we're just excited and pleased that it all went well. This rally has a lot of potential and we're simply excited with what this could turn into. It's a fun thing that's not intended to put any noses out of joint so you should stop being so paranoid about people trying to upset you and maybe give some constructive criticism, if you really feel you have to give any.
The rally was fun, and all we're saying and if anyone is interested in taking part at some point they may like to hear that it went well this time. Of course if you're not interested, you don't have to read the posts.

agree with Des . I think 'rib babe' is non existant. Its funny when you look back a bit, there were quite a few "so called members" who joined when all this started. Its a lot of hyped rubbish. Ok Rib babe

- type/ name of boat SSR if you got it?
- Engin(s)
- time to cross to Deauville
- Sea Conditions

We would all like to share in this breathtaking achievement.........

By the way who won??

so we have "specte racing "alias rupert bonham -smith
"rib babe " "alias rupert bonham -smith

who else I wonder?

Rupe, your great, great, great .great.great grandad would not be over enjoyed by the carrying ons of his 5th generation grand child - or was that a load of hype as well?

Traffic Warden of the Year

I have been asked to present the award to the Traffic Warden of the Year, based on the posts on this thread. The votes have been coming in from many people based on comments before and after the Rally.

As it is now widely known, the Rally was an enormous success and will become a permanent fixture in the boating calender.

So, on to the awards....

The nominations are

1) Scary Des, for being highly envious (despite trying to disguise it), and trying to criticise the event at any opportunity. Best to eat humble pie now Des.

2) Pete 7, for getting very cross that others could have fun.

3) Alan, the "expat Rib Pundit", sitting in some frozen wasteland with obviously nothing better to do than pass unhelpful comment. A bit of a Victor Meldrew.

4) Eupa

and the Winner is EUPA!

Mr. Dull from Belgium, a most suitably dreary country for this traffic warden to live in. His posts just about sums up this individual, absolutlely could not stand the fact an adventurous group of people were planning to have fun...tried to find every bit of red tape and regulations to damage the event, wanted to drive his boat across the bows of the participants, wanted to tip off the French authorities.
Well Mr. Eupa, you failed. The event was an outstanding success. It will happen again every year. This is likely to be very dissapointing for you.

You may collect your prize at the celebration party in Chelsea.

To all the other posters on this thread. The organisers have recognised that apart from the people nominated above and of course Eupa, that many of you have an excellent sense of humour, and were willing the Rally to be a success. It was and they thank you for that.

The organisers will welcome you to join in next year now that they have proven what an excellent event it is.

HM The Queen
