I only found out about this event late on Thursday night did a search on google and found the website www.ribraid.com
it is a fun event going from Donaghadee to Portpatrick then back to Donaghadee. I was amazed this event hadn't been mentioned on here after a search it has been spoken about in previous years but not 2009 or 10.
I phoned the number on ribraid.com website to find out soem more about the event, in the end up Gail and Marty 2 of the orgainisers came over to Portpatrick in the Redbay 7.4 of Carl and Paula to meet us and escort us back across to Donaghadee where we spent the night.
On the sunday morning registration for the event was at Pier 36 Pub, Resuarant and Hotel where we got breakfast a saftey briefing then out to the boats to do a lap round Donaghadee Harbour then head off for Portpatrick over 30 ribs lead by the Lifeboat for the first mile or so. We were then meet at by the Portpatrick Lifeboat and lead into Portpatrick Harbour where everyone tied up and went for a few sociable drinks
before leaving to go back to Donaghadee at 5.30 for a bbq again at Pier 36, unfortunatly i could take the time to go back over on the Sunday night and had to return home, but i will be more orgainsed for next year and will go back over for the Sunday night.
I would like to say a massive thank you to Gail, Marty, Carl and Paula for coming over to Portpatrick on the Saturday to meet us and for organising such a good event.
