I'm all for folk getting out on their ribs by whatever means , organised cruising or just doing their own thing . Personally I don't feel I need other folk to organise cruises in my own back yard for me ( I'd probably go along though just to get out......)
I happen to love BIBOA's Scottish cruises , so I'm towing up from Essex for the third time . If you just want to cruise the N.E , why not organise a " RIBnet " gathering ?
If BIBOA are organising a cruise somewhere that you do fancy , go along and join them . I'm sure you will get a warm welcome and you'll enjoy it .
Just don't be so negative about something you haven't tried !
