Last summer a 3.3 m inflatable, then a 4.3m followed by a 4m Narwhal RIB and now a 6.2m Avon RIB. This summer...................... who knows ??

Of course I've been on the water !!!!

She's back and she's bad.....what's been happenin'? Miss me?

Read all your comments.... was not intending to be in a chair at the SOC send - off. I like socialising and mingling, not sitting down!!! - Plus, I can drink more when I stand up!!!

I have been out on / in the water most of my life - not on RIB's so much - that is a fairly new thing for me.

Any other watersports - yup.

Sounds like I have to justify myself here.

Just so you know, I do have a MCA Boatmasters license - huh!
(commercial passenger boats) and I am the only and first female boatmaster in Cardiff!!!

I have been on the sidelines a bit, but its full throttle ahead again now, so look out.

Sounds really odd writing the above - like an interview!

I w true groupie today and went to the Cardiff Boat jumble.
I did not buy a boat or even a fender, but had a closer look at a
ZAPCAT. (a co in Cardiff are agents and had the first delivery of one on Friday)
Brand spanking new bright yellow ZAPCAT.

It will be out for the SOC send off and will be joined by another three - or so is the plan at the moment.

Whooosh!!

From what I understand talking to Zapcat owners they are always looking for excuses to race - outside of their own series that is. Any chance of putting on a race - bit of an impromptu one - I'll provide a Cup of some sorts if it comes off. We could even include the Gemini Cats - which don't have their own series - but have the same engine and similar set up I believe?

This could be a great attraction for Saturday afternoon or Sunday Morning - and I am sure someone with your local clout could pull this off even at this short notice.

G,
Good idea, but we don't want to deviate from the impportance of the week-end too much.
Will have a chat with the guy / agent today and see what he thinks.

(possibly a demo race, cup not required and get them to come to the pub etc. all depennds on when they would be coming down.
will keep you posted.)
