Ya the decks cleared really fast, I was surprised he recovered so fast. This is why we have trunks! (and he remembered to lower the drain trunks before he set out...)

Is an AIS mob the right tool?

I was lucky that I did not end up flushed into the water .My lifevest inflated instantly .
But if I ended up in the water - there was a strong swell and my buddies would have passed me without seeing me - but we all have AIS .

Over 45 years Iíve done that twice over Chichester bar in SR4ís - both with bow dodgers and windscreens. The youngest, always me had to climb over the back and pull the plug out with the boat on the plane so it could drain. Funnily enough it hasnít happened in recent years!

Nice young Conor encouraging the helm to 'keep the bow up' (I assume that's what his hand gesture means).

Do I remember that challenge as originally being for sub-6m boats or something? I think Trev Goddard rigged Baby Blue with specifically that in mind IIRC.

There was a quite substantial long period swell and the helm was running a little to fast with (it transpired) too much "trim down" on. The boat was the Suzuki Sponsors craft - around 9.5m with 22" tubes and a very high bow...

Hey, no criticism intended, of the boat *or* the helm. Just reminiscing (with a dram) over following the challenge from the safety of the internet.

If it were to happen now I would definitely want to give it a go. (Though that may be the drink talking).

No it wasn't. We were just separated in 2 groups - the larger boats and the small boats .
Paul Glatzel with his Targa looked after us with the small boats .
Trevor went with his 4.7 with the big boys .

Sorry, no offence intended, but I think the *original* concept was 4m boats. Then it became sub-5m as per this thread, then I think HMS had the idea of a 'Challenge' class for the sub-5m boats and another for the bigger boats (can't remember what this was to be called). Ribquest built a 4.8 for HMS and I think one of his kids had a Pink Highfield under the magic 5m threshold.

In the end it looked quite hairy enough regardless of what size boat you were in!

The text I copied from the announcement HMS sent :

Round Ireland Powerboat & RIB Challenge 2013 (RIPRC 2013)
26th July to 4th August 2013
An Overview of the RIPRC 2013 Challenge
Categories:
Challenge Class:
- Vessels up to and including 5.00m LOA
Explorer Class:
- Vessels from 5.01m to 7.50m
Adventure Class:
- Open class Ė any vessel over 7.50m
The essential part of this circumnavigation of Ireland Powerboat & RIB Challenge is a challenge featuring three distinct classes, as above.
The 2013 Round Ireland Powerboat & RIB Challenge will be a Ďfirstí for two key reasons. Firstly; it will be the first time a flotilla of 4m+ sized powerboats will have ever circumnavigated Ireland. Secondly; the course will proceed in an anti-clockwise direction around the country.

Indeed - regardless of the size of the boat it was a real challenge for each and every participant !
Hope to be back in Ireland next year again
