RIBnet Europe

There is a whole lot of ribbing going on in countries like Greece and Italy that we just don't hear about at the moment.

Obviously, being UK based and English-lanuage there's always going to be a bias on RIBnet, but it would be good to have closer links with other countries. Their weather tends to be nicer for a start!

Michael Vamvakousis is an administrator on the Hellenic RIB forum and he's started this off by creating an English-language section for us. If you're interested in RIBs in Greece then please make the most of their welcome.

What timing !

I have a week in Cyprus at the beginning of Feb ! A spin in the sun might be just what's needed to break up the winter blues

Having a bit of trouble logging in at present but Rome / Athens wasn't built in a day

Hello to everyone. Thanks John, thanks ribnet.

It's true that we have a better weather but if the weather goes windy it's better to find a garage for your boat. For example, the last August i faced during my vacation about 10 days of 8-9 bft winds at the island of Serifos in Cyclades. This weather made me to anchor the boat using 3 anchors.

Well we will talk for our weather. I just wanted now to introduce our forum to you.

We call it HELLENIC RIB FORUM and the link is www.fouskoto1.gr

I am going to change the status in the ribnet link in our forum so you can see what is writen there without log in.

Soon i will upload some pictures and video on the ribnet just to give you an idea about greek rib an seas.

See you and thanks for the welcome.

Hello to All :-)

I am also one of the Administrators of the Hellenic Rib Forum and I am glad to be here as well. I am sure it will be intersting for the members of both forums to exhange views and experiences regarding RIBing. Also, if anyone of you ever comes to Greece for holidays, we will be happy to provide any info we can.

@Batfalcon: Michael, sorry for the intervention, but probably you missed the ''d'' in Dirk's post. He said it would be nice to hear from Manos, not that you are Manos :-)
