Thames Cruise 2001

was the highlight for many of the BIBOA calendar last year (8 boats attended!). We intend to repeat it again this year - again launching in Docklands and cruising down to Chatham for the overnight before returning to London. Details in the next RIBLINES or from yours truly!

OK, you can't expect me not to plug BIBOA again can you!

Alan

PS If I come on Sat (probably will) I will bring my new "geek cam" as JK calls em for some photo's for rib.net

M4 Rib Convoy

Looks like Graeme and Jools meeting @ membury

Me & John (Scubakid) meeting @ heston

Anyone else meeting on the M4?

How do you think we will identify each other as we have never met before?

I am very easy to notice Ex Camel Photo RIB so I do not have the full 'roof rack' but the design and colours are the same, boat name is Dromedary (in dict. as "speedy one humped camel") I will wait in the truck park on the left as you come up the slip road.

Easy then

Yellow = ScubaKid
Blue = Graeme
Red = Jools
Grey = Jahno

Well - that's the boats taken care of - aslong as we stand by our own ribs we shouldn't get confused!

URGENT URGENT URGENT



I've just found out that there is a large rowing event (Heads of the River?) @ Putney on Saturday. Possibly 200 rowing 8's!!

Not sure what this would mean in terms of the river being closed off or parking/launching faciltities at Putney but would imagine this could be a real problem!

Might the sensible move be to reschedule for Sunday to avoid potential conflict/disaster?! (& benefit from a later high tide time)

Cheers,
Alan W

The Head Of The River runs from Mortlake to Putney and boats do not go downstream of Putney Bridge so once we're on the water there should be no problem.

The slipway will however be very busy as this is the principal launching area for the 200+ boats.

Not sure what to suggest!!
