Sea Survival Course for Ribnet Members

I really really want to done one and have two people in the company who also need to, that makes it:

Alderney Marine x3

If you can confirm a price please Doug, I will get straight onto the locals.

Current price is 83-89 per person depending on when booked

This will be going up in January both due to VAT and other costs increasing (pool hire, raft re pack etc).

Martin
Come back to me with numbers and I will give you a group price. The course can take up to 16, although we often have 2 courses running on the same day. If we can get 16 ribbers then we can tailor the day a bit more towards ribs. If not I will top up the course with yachties.

Excellent.

I suspect there may not be time to beat the VAT increase, but I would be very surprised if we cannot fill at least one 16 person course.

Cheers Neil, that makes the tally:

Malthouse x3
Mr KY x1 (+Spectator)
NeilH x1

11 Places remain.

The cost is 79 to regular RIBnet members, 85 otherwise. (The 2010 price for this course is 99)

Course date is likely to be early March or late Feb, suggestions please.

Once again, thanks Doug

Any suggestions about places to stay nearby for those of us who will be traveling (probably by RIB)?

Correction, 76 pounds not 79.

There is a price reduction for 9 or more, I think, but I am sure that will become clearer as names are added.

KY, would you mind being treasurer for this?

Martin - no problem being treasurer

I also have a well used Paypal account if that makes paying easier for anyone

If we can delay until March then I might be able to also take part - or at least in some of the activities - but please don't hang on for me if a better time suits all.

Doug/Martin - can you give a break down of the format and training - it sounds great
