some peeps have too much time on their hands :)

This being a Polish RIB therefore blessed we will have to abstain from all sorts.

Barring of course a nice bottle of vino (Chateauneuf du Pape ???) or some holy spirits ( like a good old dynamite- yer- head -off Jameson)

Got some pink champers on ice for the launch.


Passage Planning.

Head West. Don't hit the island of Wight. Don't wanna upset the Island Tims.
Aim for Pete 7's Carbon Footprint.

Firstly, many thanks to Richard for allowing me to join this shindig…. And to Andre for letting me know it was happening.

Although I would prefer a wind force or so less than that forecast, it is a BIG RIB…. And why do we want a big rib? So it will be OK in F6 - F7!...... I’ll let you know!

By the way guys, (and Missus) I’ve booked us all in for dinner at the Holiday Inn at 8pm….

See you then, if not before!

Mike C


PS. The only Polish word worth knowing is PIVO (not sure on the spelling though!)

You will not need any Polish. We are not going there, not this time

See you all at 7:30.

The rib was cranned off successfully, looks really smart, those engines are really really quiet.

We have just got up 5.30am here, unfortunately the wind has not backed down as predicted so we have decided to leave our departure to later, when the winds are supposed to receed. We are restricted by the access lock to the marina which does not re-open until 15.30 french time. So hopefully the wind will be in our favour and we can make for home.

Up Date

I have just got home, we are all totally worn out, will post full story tomorrow, we were boarded twice and had full customs search, plus on arrival to Littlehampton had 2 Police Helicopters, Customs Rib, 4 Police Cars the lot.

Will tell all tomorrow, The Rib performed impecably, absolute fantastic Rib, Had 4-5 plus waves with speeds of 22-48 knots across the top the whole way back.

Huge thank you to Paul & Kathleen, Andre, Mike C and Simon Everett(rib international)

Off for a hot bath now and glass of wine to chill out
