RIBex

Who is going this year?

This year, like last year, we are running a shuttle service for people wishing to travel there by RIB. Unlike last year, this year we are, along with Red Funnel, one of the "official" ways to get to the show. More details here:

http://www.ribexhibitions.co.uk//ind...d=79&Itemid=56

Offer for RIBnet people - buy three seats, get one free! As the page above says, the price also includes entry to the show. 24 hour secure car parking is available just 2 minutes walk from the marina at Gunwharf Quays.

Simply call us on 02392 528447 with your credit or debit card handy to book.

I'll be going - most likely with a couple of mates too. Rather than have the fun of rafting up, we may well call you. Could you pick up from the Camber if required Tim?

We'll be going, probably on the Saturday, kids Cricket matches permitting.

Rafting up is all part of the fun

Not going this year, 'cos it's Llanelli v Carmarthen Quins in the WRU Cup Final on the Saturday, so off to the Millenium Stadium with 2,000 other people from Carmarthenshire. Will have to arrive early to be assured of a good seat.

I have an irrational fear of rafting up. The potential for cock-up, when allied to my own meagre skills, makes it an area of boating I would do many things to avoid. I've done it maybe 5 times and nobody died or anything, but I didn't enjoy it.

Going on Sat ( probably) . Boat stands out & will have RIBNET burgee on it.

I dislike rafting too, mainly due to poeple walking all over the place getting it filthy, and treating other peoples boats with little respect.

8000 miles at, oh, 1.2 litres a mile at, what, 1.20 a litre (possibly a whisker more for refuelling mid Atlantic)

Quite a price I expect and you'll have to fill the tubes with petrol as well
