We have a date.

Saturday, September 6th is the day. We will be launching at the Galilee R.I. ramp at 10:00 am. See http://www.dem.ri.gov/programs/bnatr...tlnch.htm#salt for address.

Block Island is about 13 miles out, so it should be a good ride. LTF is working on getting us someplace to tie up when we get there.

Any other ribbers interested?

Bill

Would love to go, but I'll be in the air on my way to Beijing for the Paralympics. I'll be stuck ashore or on a spectator boat, no ribbing on the Yellow Sea for me

You can follow my wife's sailing results at www.sailchallengeinspire.org if your interested. Racing starts Sept 8. I'll be writing the updates for that site and posting photos as well.

It would be great to have you. We are also looking at the weather too. As early as last week ribfan and I had discussed the possiblility of the hurricane hitting this weekend. It does look like this sat will be just when it is hitting. I am not looking for anything other than an enjoyable experience. I have no intention on fighting any bad weather and I dont believe ribfan does either. We probaly will just keeping an eye on the storm and will see hwat later in the week brings. If it is not right mayby we will reschedual it another time. Keep checking back and its nice to see another rib owner in New England, where abouts are you in MA

saturdays a washout

Much to my dismay, saturday does not look like a block island day, or any kind of a boating day for that matter. I'm not sure about another day this fall because I have commitments for the next bunch of weekends.

Block Island may have to wait for spring 09.

If anything changes, I'll give you a call.

Bill
