Steve,
Sounds good. We are planning to come down for Sat 2nd Nov as there is a Halloween party at the Chichester yacht club - we could take you out on that day if you'd like?
I have the prev week off to look after my 13 yr old as it's half term so maybe able to do a day then , otherwise work at Horley in Surrey most days as a GP.
We started with a 7m Cobra and bought the Humber a year ago. Bigger is better!
If you are interested , perhaps send a Pm & I'll text you my email / contact details. Both my wife Kate and I have down the advanced course with Peter White , also based at Chichester Marina, so you should be safe! If you wanted to come out for a day we could run over to Cowes for lunch, or to the forts and back if you're pushed for time. It's about an hr from the lock at the Marina to 'west pole' and the sea and you need to get the boat upto speed to experience ribbing properly - the harbour has a blanket 8 knot sped limit . If lousy weather , we sometimes just run to Sparkes Marina at the entrance to the harbour on Haling Island, where Piranha ribs are based. There's a cafe/ restaurant there which allows free berthing if you go for a coffee - very civilised- and a chance to dry out.
Let me know your thoughts .
I'll mail you some pictures of the boat if you're curious?

Hi Rumbustious,

I would have loved to take you up on your offer. Having done the PB2 course, it would have been really great to get out on the water.

However, whilst I will be at the marina on the 2nd, I will be holed up in a room learning the phonetic alphabet and the wonders of a 2m ariel over a 1m ariel on my radio course (and BTW, Cliff, if your reading this that is not a reflection on your excellent teaching, just having to do a course just to get a certificate )

So I ill have to reluctantly decline, but if I can, Ill see if I can find you if you are around to at least say hi, and introduce you to my boss (the home one that is....!) Sharon.

Would however love to see some piccies - although, it will probably just make me even more jealous - if you can send some trough.

Again thanks for the extremely kind offer.

Steve

Hi Barrowboy

I always have problems picking these names - by the time I sign onto anything (gmail, rib net, Icloud you name it) I am so far behind the curve that all the names i would use have already been taken!! However, I do like "speed bird" ever since I learnt it was BA's call sign. My better half said that everyone would think I am an BA airline pilot - sadly not that glamorous. I run manufacturing companies - functional but not sexy!!

It is nice to see someone else in the same area as I am - the dilemma of choice!!

Steve

Steve,
No worries , no rush.
We could be down tomorrow ( Sunday) for lunch , but otherwise let me know when you're free. Good luck with the course!
Just learn the mayday and pan pan , and you'll be fine.
Richard

Hi Rumbustious,

What a cracking good looking boat that is - as i thought, it has made me very jealous - but i think for the time being Ill have to stick to the original strategy!!!

I should be ok on the radio course. I did one about 10 years ago, as I used to do a lot of cruiser sailing around the solent (I am also a costal skipper) but because of the new GMDSS, I have to redo it - bit of a pain. Thing is, the course is going to get more difficult next year, so I have to stitch it in before December - otherwise I would have seriously considered cancelling to come out with you!!!

Steve
