Hi Nadia,
Am probably coming down. But don't worry about sleeping bag as I am trying to sort a freebie at Holiday Inn!!
May bring my boat, depends if trailer is up to it! Otherwise I'll be scrounging a lift to see the big departure!
Cheers,
Andy.

Hi,
Read the website - can sympathise - Cardiff Bay has no speed restrictions as present, but they are looking at zoning it and introducing certain speed restrictions in certain areas. The Rivers are both 5mph which I guess is ok enough but not always great either - especially when there is a big river flow on and people are always ready to complain!

What sort of dates are you looking at for the protest?

Windamere

Jahno,

There was an organisation organising protests against and otherwise generally fighting the imposition of the 10mph speedlimit on Windamere. Their website seems not to have been updated recently though.

Check out http://www.noslow.org.uk/

Only been to Windamere once in (whisper it) a Fletcher but had a good weekend. Seems a shame that the National Park authority wants to spoil everyones fun and wreck a significant portion of the local economy!

Cheers,
Alan

Hey, this thread is for social groupies!(both male and female) - I agree no violence protests against such issues as in the case of Windermere are important - but...could you perhaps start a thread on Protests / RIb taking action on water?

Ta.

Hey, just because I had a little moan about subject-deviation, you lot have become very quiet on this thread...what happened? Lost interest already? Don't you know of any groupies? We can be very supportive in your hobby and very helpful - just ask
Alan P.
Not everyone has their own boat, yet.
although I could say I own 2 boats - through work - but they are not RIBs.

Let's hear it for the groupies!
