I belong to Guernsey Yacht Club, mainly for the bar!

Trouble is there's a silly cow behind the bar that has it in for one of my mates girlfriends.......so tend not to go there too much now which is a shame. I should really complain to the management.

The facilities are good but it's a bit yachty and they tend not to like the motor boat lot. Until we come and pick them up coz there too pissed on gin to make it home!

They also do good evening courses in the winter.

My problem - one of many - is that Monday nights do not usually work. How about a meet to the WEST of Southampton water?

Absolutely. From your post I wasn't sure whether you knew about BIBOA, and wondered whether it might meet your needs though. Shame to reinvent the wheel if it's not necessary!

Appreciate this may be stepping on the toes of Ribnet so please feel free to remove this thread if you wish.
There's no problem at all -- discussion like this is exactly what these forums are for

All im enquiring about is some form or organisation to a group of people who are already meeting. From this opportunities could arise to add to everyones boating experience. organised events, shared use of facilities and the like.
Maybe we should form an official RIBnet club and have it affiliated to the RYA -- anyone know anything about the amount of bureaucracy involved in this sort of thing?

We could certainly try to build up the number of regular social meets, as these seem to have beeen very successful so far.

OK. It's got to be worth at least finding out what might be involved
