Calling all Solent Ribbers....

Welcome to 2005.and what a busy year its going to be

Dont know if this is going to be of any use to anyone, but I hope it is because its taken ages to type my computer crashed twice and so this is third time lucky.

At the risk of sounding like I work for Portsmouth Tourist Information (which I dont), here are just some of the boating events coming our way in the Solent. I hope you find this useful. For the events with lots of traffic best to check with pompey qhm (websites below).

*10th-12th June. Ribex. Cowes.
*11th June. Sea carnival. Pompey harbour and Solent. Everyone is welcome to join in a massive parade of all sorts of boats on the sea all crashing about together.
*18th June. Round the island race. Starting Cowes. Its sailing, but we can infiltrate.
*28th June. International fleet review. Solent. 150 boats from over 40 Navies worldwide will gather on the Solent for the Queens inspection followed by a fly-past. Marvellous.
*28th June. Son et luminaire. A reenactment of the battle of Trafalgar off Southsea sea front using tall ships, culminating in a whopping great big fireworks display.
*29th June. International Drumhead Service. Southsea Common.
*30th June-3rd July. International Festival of the Sea. Pompey harbour. Lots more boats crashing about together.
30th July-6th August. Cowes week. Cowes. Its sailing, but hey.
*16th-17th July. Return of the global challenge yachts. Solent and Gunwharf. The boats return from their round the world race.
*24th -26th August. Cowes classic powerboat weekend. Cowes.
*16th-25th September. Southampton boat show. Southampton. Say no more.

Some useful web addresses are:

www.qhmportsmouth.co.uk

Enjoy we will!
Kathy and Izzy

We have already volunteered for this for the 27th & 28th June. Ribs need to be over 6m, with at least one member of crew to RYA Level 2.

Further info is available from richardsalaman@aol.com

Should be a good couple of days.

Ian.
