Its good to see that at least Polwart and Chris123 have the ability to read and understand the written word. ..........
For the record Brian I'm not asking nor expecting anyone to do anything for ME.......I generally find that people's attention to detail is poor or that they are just plain incompetent and consequently if I want something doing I always prefer to do it myself...its the only way of guaranteeing satisfaction.
Why you or anyone else would think it would be wise to arrange a trip to Spain, Southern France, Croatia etc (accommodation, food, rib hire, fuel, and route planning) is beyond me. It would be far better for everyone concerned if a company can be located abroad that specialises is this type of activity (like the spainish offroad motorcycle rides) which means that maximum value and enjoyment can be extracted by all participants.
Life is too short to waste time and money therefore I'd always prefer to PAY the experts and have the maximum fun available.

Back to the original thread..... If anyone knows of any such overseas company (weather more guarateed) that can offer the full ribbing package then I would be very pleased to hear from you.

well without too much trouble you could find an apartment in Sof and hire a rib

www.darkpelican.com operate daily hire if you have an ICC; they are based in Villefranche which is itself a magnificent bay / natural harbour.

try anflo info riviera for boat hire along the coast

You can have RIB holidays in Greece. The only thing is that everything is so expenssive here.

For a 7Mtr RIB with a 250 4-strokes they charge from 150-250 euro/day. I'm not sure how much it may be for a week. Never the less, if any one is interested let me know and will ask. But IHMO is EXTREMLY expenssive.

compared to UK bareboat prices I would say that is good! even with poor (for us Euro-GBP rate). A similar one day bare boat rental on the south coast of England would probably cost around 350 GBP / 400 EUR + Fuel

You reminded me of the "International Aegean R.I.B. Adeventure" that I organized in Greece some 17 years ago! It was back in 1992 that 30 r.i.b.'s with their crew arrived Athens from England, Germany and Italy. Our intention was to sail all around the Cyclades islands for one week, together with another 15 Greek ribsters. Everything was under control, there was a sponsor, media cover, back up r.i.b.'s, hotel accommodation, sightseeing etc., but...

...although it was September, calm weather of the first day turned into a 7 force north wind on the second day and onwards! It was a disaster for our guests who were not used to the Aegean waves and the "hammer effect" that brakes bones and flesh! Bear in mind the type of hulls (especailly those made in Italy) and the size of the boats 17 years ago, and you will have a clear view of what heppened...

I remember I had to tow David George's 8 m. Delta, powered by Sabre diesel inboard engine, who had some fuel problems near Santorini, with my 5,95 Olympic, the Mariner 175 and five persons on board, including my two kids! I was then obliged to organize, on behalf of all my English, German and Italian friends, to have their trailers collected in Santorini, Mykonos or Ios islands, and take their boats back to Piraeus on board big liners! Only eight out of fifteen Greek crews managed to make the entire tour on board their r.i.b.'s and their own forces...

I have organized a lot of rib crusing in the Aegean since then, but I didn't dare to do it with foreigners again...

Villa, RIB's provided, food cooked, beer served, warm sun, warm sea, no drysuit, no trailer. Sounds like a winner to me Mr G. If you find anywhere that provides that type of break let me know, if I've got the time and money to do it I'll join you.
