Hi Bertrand and welcome!

Your site is great -- my French is much worse than your English, but there are some web sites that can help:

PROMPT
Babelfish

The translations are not very good, but they can help to get some understanding of what's on a web site. If you go from French to English they translate Pneu as Tire when it really means an inflatable boat!

I will add your site to the RIBnet links page next time I do an update (which should be soon!)

John

Thank you very much for your answer.

The site we make with my friend is the first one in France about rib passion.

Last summer in August we have organized our first metting (5 boats). During 4 days we have navigated all around La Rochelle, we have visited few islands : Ile de Ré, Ile d'Olerons Ile d'Aix and many others things.
It was really good and we had a lot of fun, and the nights was very short.
My boat is only 6 months old but I would like to change. I would like to have a longer one wich goes better throw the waves. Mine is good but not with to big waves. I can reach a bit more than 32 knots (I do no if it is correct???;-))

I will wait this winter to change, I think it will be better to make good deals.

What is your boat ?

Bertrand

Bebert,

You' ve got a very nice site there. I just paid a visit and saw all the pictures from your raid. I have only one little thing to remark. Try to make the photos a little sharper. If you use a scanner (and not a digital camera), I recommend the "Adobe Photoshop " as a image editor. They have included an option called "sharpen" that makes what it says. (Take a look at the links below).

And now to all the ribsters from UK.

As you may all see no one is wearing a life jacket at Bebert's pictures. So it's a matter of climate conditions. With this SUN and TEMP it' rather impossible to put on nothing more but a pair of shorts and a t-shirt.

I envy now. (joke). I want a link my sites put on rib.net too !!!

We didn't whear any life jacket because as you said the weather was realt good, and the see so quite :-)
But the last day of the raid some of us have used life jacket, it was raining and we had 1.5 meter waves...

Concerning the pictures, they come a the digital camear from my friend bur he had to make them not to much heavy, you understand what I mean ? (I hope...)

HAve a nice week end.

Bebert
