Hoorn-London Rib raid 2007

We did it!
From Hoorn (near Amsterdam) to London and back with three RIBs.
With a Revenger 25, a Ribcraft 6.8, and a Scorpion 8,25, and 9 RIB freaks.
It was a great adventure.
We love england!!

ribraid

We left wednesday the 18th at 6am and went via Amsterdam and Ijmuiden to Vlissingen.
Next day via Blankenbergen(petrol) and Ramsgate(petrol) to London.
We spended two nights in London (great city) and returned Saturday the same way back.
We had lots of fun but it was serious ribbing the way back.(force 5)
And no, we didn't keep it dry but we had good gear so no problem.
