Away with you!
Apologies, I didnt know the position was already filled, I thought I had spotted a niche!
Is the position of wingman to "Cranky, Sarcastic and Irritating Irish lad with a Long Memory" still open?

Hmmmm. Better still, we could harry them in shifts - they need a close eye kept on them. It's good you having the SR, it's like The Knights of Columbanus, the way an SR opens doors on here and you'd have the Avon Army at your back when things turn nasty

Sounds like a plan! Divide & conquer etc. Theres safety in numbers. I
Does that mean you are a SR "sympathiser" or perhaps empathiser more correctly?
I had better not sell the boat then :-)

With everyone having rib gatherings we should start an Irish thread, no need to wait 'till the spring for a gathering as the weather is consistently bad here!

We were having the laugh recently that our best days out this year were in January and February - calm and cold and clear! There's a wee fleet of us up here in the NW, launching from Donegal Bay to the Foyle. This year saw us on Inishmurray, (off!) Rathlin O Beirne, Tory, Inishtrahull and Islay. There is almost always good times to be had on the Swilly* if it's blowing and Mulroy is doable in a gale, if you don't have any particular Grá for your props and skeg!

Visitors are always welcome. I'd especially like to organise a link up with the Ribnutters from the Western Isles & Scroatland

*Jellicoe concealed his fleet in there in 1916.. & look what happened to him!
I bet he wasnt even sleeping on the bridge.
They did ship him off to NZ & named the approach channel to Auckland after him though!
Im in Cork, there must be plenty of Rib owners down here.

God Polwart, we hijacked your thread, gassing like a couple of auld wans - sorry. Still, if you took one more day and aimed about SSW when you get to Islay....

I have a good friend who lives in NI who is always trying to convince me to bring my ickle boat across. But I think it would need to be perfect conditions for me to brave it; I could probably be convinced to do it in company in reasonable weather - but my littul tubs not exactly speedy so I would need to find someone equally as stupid with an equally innapropriate vessel. Sods law if I can get a weather window good enough to get there and back with confidence then wife/kids/work will have other plans.

In any case thats probably not a trip for the people I am thinking of taking on the 'voyage' that started this thread.
