Bangor Ribraid / Rib Hire in Northern Ireland.

Ok, Having heard Alan P's hardsell of this years Ribraid at Cowes, Laura and I are planning to go. Have emailled Gina (I think it is) for details and to hopefully get a couple of spaces on a boat.

Though its always its nicer to have your own RIB for an event so its a long shot but does anyone know of any Rib charter (bareboat) operations in Northern Ireland?

And is anyone else going? I guess Aging Yoof will be there with Jolly Sailor heading of to Newfoundland but anyone else? Tim G?

Cheers,
Alan

I hadn't forgotten

Yes I should be there. Just back from St.Kilda so I'm not up to date with what is going on. Does Gail have a website up and running, or are there details anywhere else? I believe that it is on at the end of the month but no one over here seems to know very much!

Cheers

Allen

Boats from IoM

Can little boats come too - I am keen to go, but would prefer to be in company as mine is only 5.2m and 70hp.

Is there a group going from the IoM?

Jon

Gail, Take note of the Alan's opening thread " After Alans HARD sell of this years RIBRAID" Just in case you dont think I do anything in my spare time! And Whitingiom, just in case Gail is still hung over somewhere and does not read this, small boats are more than welcome. PM Allen Corlett AKA hairdresser to se when they are coming over. I know Don is already up in Scotland and will be coming down rather than up this year
