BananaShark on front cover!

Well our first review (Rib International) went at least as well as we could have hoped - Robert Avis is a well respected journalist, and he came out in the boat after Cowes on Bank Holiday Monday and his main complaint was that it took the wake of the camera boat (thanks again Gordon) too well!

We are doing demos throughout the winter by the way, and the demonstrator will be for sale in the not too distant future - get your wallets out boys and girls!

It is a great review of the boat, still we were very disapointed not to see her last Saturday, but fully understandable after seeing the conditions in Falmouth Bay

Was that the conditions that the Cornish Ribsters had such a good time in?

If you need me to explain the difference between playing in the mouth of a bay with other boats for company and a lone passage of 60 miles in the same conditions, then you need to get out more.

Kitten,
Twas a joke! we all discussed winding you up after the Falmouth trip, Bob & I decided against coming down from Par so we guessed there was no way you'd be coming from 60 odd miles away.
(PS Mollers started it we all said it was a bad idea )

Hey! How did I get dragged into it?!! I do remember some conversation about Bananas and Salcombe lightweights. Can't recall the details though.
