Can I suggest that if it's company and cruises you enjoy then I'm of the opinion that you can post your plans on RIBnet and see what develops.
Something that RIBnet members around the Solent area missed this year was the weather
and someone to help organise decent cruises. If you're a person that enjoyed the organisation side of things then this would be a dream job.
I for one enjoy tagging along, but often can't make a decision to go untill the last minuit. Because of this reson it makes it difficult to organise things myself.
So come on, who's up for a trip to Alderney?
