Hey Guys
You need to give the new Powerboat Chief Instructor a chance to change the ingrained views of the RYA.
Admittedly previously we seem to have been viewed with tolerance so they could go sailing.
If we don't give them constructive feed back, things will never change and we will continue to be annoyed ( can think of other words here ) by the body that allegedly represents us.

I actually quite fancy a poker run as a laugh - an excuse to burn prodigious amounts of petrol! I can do 50kts so I suspect I might not lag too far behind Jon's Phantom (Especially if its a bit choppy). Trouble is I have no accomodation on board (obviously) so its B&B's for me. Do I lose out on the post event cameraderie then?

Alan

I remeber that bash, That was our 1st weekend with BIBOA. good event, That was a long time ago. That means you must be ** years old. That weekend started us of in Ribs with our humber which the year later you took a chain saw to the deck and we re built her. After that it was a much better boat and still going strong. That was good fun doing the work our selves etc.

Allan,
Of course not! post event cameraderie is a major part of the fun, overnight berthing is included in the entry, and the next day we usualy have a tear about somewhere and maybe raft up for lunch and a swim (weather permiting) you'll just have to get back from the B&B in time to come with us! after all, we will all want to hear your excuses for your lame performance in the "choppy" conditions on the previous day! ( and to settle any outstanding wagers you may have lost!) LOLOLOL


Regards, Jon

Hi Jon

Yep I'm only 25 but after some of these events I feel like 95 with all the aches and pains , and if Mr Priddy is involved i normally have a blinding head ache after too much beer. I blame him.

This poker run does sound good to me. Any idea of dates etc.

Julian

No firm dates for this year yet, we need to check all the racing and cruising dates first to try and avoid a clash, first run is usualy end of May-start of june, but will keep anyone who's interested posted, it is great fun, we normally run IRO 70nm on the day, so it's no big deal for those concerned about fuel (we may need gum shields and boxing gloves if you rufty-tufty rib chaps get going, so I may get head protection!)

PS. Chris Strickland did one a couple of years ago, ask him what he thought!

Keep you informed,

Regards Jon F
