Another itch to scratch



To all Round Ireland Teams,

· Our 2013 Suzuki Sponsored Round Ireland Powerboat & RIB Challenge proved to be a huge success this summer. Due to the wealth of material resulting from this event, we have decided to commit to publishing a special 76 page colour supplement that will be ‘belly-bound’ and released with issue 117, the London Boat Show edition of PBR. Only a few teams have sent in their experiences of the event, but the supplement will contain a page dedicated to each individual team, so we really need your 500 words!! Mo will be chasing you!....we were hoping to run this supplement with this next issue but we have bounced it to 117 in order to allow more time to collate the material from the teams.
· In terms of next year’s PBR event, we know many of you have been keen to know our plans! We are working on arrangements at this time to deliver a fabulous high profile 2014 powerboat challenge which promises to be just as enjoyable and exciting as this year’s Round Ireland 10-day event. Furthermore, the latest news is, that following the positivity of the Round Ireland event this year and the number of requests for an annual event, we have decided to launch a rotating series of three annual, offshore, ‘everyman’ styled PBR events. This ‘Challenge Series’ shall comprise:

Round Britain Powerboat & RIB Challenge 2014
Round Scotland Powerboat & RIB Challenge 2015
Round Ireland Powerboat & RIB Challenge 2016

The plan is to run these events on similar dates to this year and we hope very much that many of you will be able to join us again on these exciting new adventures!

All the very best,
Hugo

Hmmm! let me see, do you have a double-barrelled name? Nope, thought so, it's not looking good

Oooooh... I do like a good itch to scratch!

I'll be a certain age in not that many years time, and had been figuring on having a midlife crisis around then. So I had thought if there was a repeat RI I might see if I could muster the courage to have a go. I have no RIB, no RIB cruising experience. Just like the idea, plus I loved the West Coast of Ireland when I dinghy sailed there a couple of times.

Then I thought they maybe wouldn't repeat it and thought doing something up the West Coast of Scotland might work... Glasgow -> Crinnan -->?Oban --> Round Skye??? Down the West, Round Cambletown and back into Glasgow.

Couple of things strike me:
1. Early August - weather wasn't great this time? Has anyone reviewed the trends?
2. Early August - for some is harder to get leave as thats when everyone wants to be on holiday
3. Early August makes accomodation, ferries etc more expensive.
First two weeks of September are usually good weather?

I've got 4 years left to get my itch scratched...
