Isle of Wight Boaters Meet

Hello all,

Tim Griffin and I have been talking about this for a while. Since there seems to be an ever growing number of island folk on here, we thought it might be a good idea to have a IOW evening meet in a pub (like the Solent Ribbers meet but a million times better ).

I won't suggest a date (only I guess there is no reason why it can't be in the next couple of weeks?) but I will suggest that we could have it in cowes so that those mainlanders could come along by RIB if they wanted to?

What do the IOW RIBnet posse think?

Cheers

Tim

Tim,

As a mainlander I would be up for that if given enough notice and also somewhere to keep the boat for the hours of the meet.

Regards Nick R.

The short stay pontoons at cowes...a stones throw from the pubs....would probably be good for people to moor up to. They are next to the redjet ferry terminal.

Great stuff Tim


What do you think is best mid week or weekends , Fountain or Duke of York would be good, we will have to Pm people when we decide on the date with times and venue. I Know Roy Webster would like to come and he is off the net at the mo so i will leave a note on his rib.
So far its
