I went last year, it wasn't great to be honust. I expect I will pop over again this year just for a look at any new Ribs. It's probably better if you attend the evenings entertainment as well but I just go for a quick look as im reasonably local

I've tried to visit by rib the last couple of years but weathers a bit unreliable at that time of year it seems. Doesn't sound like I've missed much but I haven't been since it was at Southampton so I might fly over this year for a day.

I reckon the trick with jollies like this is to try and leave the dates free and see what the weather is doing at the time, it is an easy enough crossing using here as a jumping off point.

Mid-May can be cracking, or at least is was when I were a lad.

That sounds like a crafty ploy to get picked up en route

It helps to remember what the weather is like that time of year when an event like Ribex is around to help jog the memory.

We've had some really good trips to Ribex as a family in the last few years, and I can remember 3 years ago desperately seaking out some shade to eat lunch as the sun and heat was becoming quite unbearable.

On the other hand, I think 4 or 5 years ago, the show closed early because it hadn't stopped raining the whole time, and I can still remember Nauti buoy's miserable soaking wet image, having been sat on his boat in a waterproof coat for 3 days waiting to take non-existant punters out on demo runs.
