Newport is my port if you catch my drift. The west Coast of Ireland can be a very brutal place. If the weather is reasonable I would be of the opinion that a crusing speed of circa 18 kn would be good enough going for the small ribs (like mine) I would love to take part in the adventure however money is tight and I have just had a new arrival in the last few weeks. I now have 3 under 4 which brings its own difficulties. I find that I get out on my boat a lot lot less than I used to (3 times last year and 4 the year before) Before they were born I would get out about once a week.

I must get the telly fixed

Hi there,

Me too want to join, even on Gilles rib!! Fantastic rib btw. Only thing is I will be in the Med that time. I love to cross to the UK. And being a BS member I already had the chance to join you guys in North Wales, Anglesy on Tony's Domino (I have the same Ribquest Rib).

Gossh I hope the weather will be fine and you will all have the time of your live. Yes having some waves adds to the joy, does is not?

I hope there will be some participants with a GoPro or sortlike device so that we also can have some fun afterwards.....

What about BS Tony, does he participate???

Also a Belgian Pneumatic Member
kind regards
Michel

Wow. You are a glutton for punishment! 3 under 4! OMG, your first and second must have been both easy births and babies, respect.

Love to catch up when our luttluns get bigger. I got my first out For the Olympics flame at 6.45am, second time on boat, filmed and a day she'll remember for life when she sees it. It's hard graft though. Beat of luck.

Went last week to the Baltic Sea to make a test run with the SR . Fully packed , 150l petrol and 2 people on board we circumnavigated Rügen .
Fuel consumption 0.45l/km with my 90hp 2stroke Yammi .
I agree that the Baltic Sea is a duck pond in comparison to the Irish Sea / Atlantic but it was fun anyway although freezing cold
Was a good test of my new drysuit and the Gecko helmet .
