A bit of good news...

I'm going too

I'll be about for the Antrim - Donegal - Mayo legs, so hope to meet a few of you on the water/in the pub.

Keep an eye out for a grey & white Redbay Stormforce 950 with all the bells and whistles

None Mind you, I'm only allowed to "sit there and don't press any buttons" on this one, still, a result in anyone's book.

Obviously you don't think the Easdale RIB rendevous is professionally organised. I assume that is because it is free rather than the alternative interpretation.

*gently coughs*

Could we do the "incisive analysis" after I've returned alive from a couple of long offshore cruises with these nice people where anything could happen and there are no witnesses?

Well said that man big plus one Poly!! Obviously Scotland is not in Europe, how silly are we. ERR as you know is well organised and is more people friendly than a lot of events. It's all about the ribbers and the community great weekend and long may it run!

Not many ribnobbers in the bar at Neyland Yacht Haven. The door policy isn't too stringent, so assuming they've taken the plunge and gone for a night out on the shant in Milford Haven
