We have a ramp listed at Penarth, just south of Cardiff, but according to the info, only 25hp and smaller engines allowed. Might be on the small side for this crowd. If anyone knows of any others please post onto boatlaunch so we can all know about it.
Many thanks and Happy Christmas everyone.

Geoff

Your listing may be out of date. There are proberbly 6 slips to use in the Cardiff/Penarth area with most of them directly into the Bay

Pride of Bristol Support

As the latest corporate members of BIBOA,, I suggested at our weekly meeting tonight that we might like to go across to Penath for the big send off.

We run an ex-RN Fleet Tender - The Pride of Bristol - to enable young people to experience life at sea and in doing so find out about themselves.

There are two ways in which we might be able to show our support

1) Provide accomatation to "Ribsters"
It appears from this thread that a number of ribsers will be attending the weekends "events"
If people are interested we could provide that overnight accomadation in Penath marina
We normaly carry 12 passengers and upto 10 crew - We have hot water/showers, 3 Flush "Heads", 240V electric etc. etc. Not posh, but better than the S-o-C for 75 days!!
Oh yes, I do a good cooked breakfast aswell!!

Much better than a travel-lodge!


2) Provide a platform for press / TV
Alan - I'm sure you have this covered - but the offers there if you need it. We also have contacts with BBC / HTV from other news stories and bits that they have filmed on us.

So, If any of these appeal - please let me know if you are interested.

Jools

Can someone give accurate details of exactly where these slips are - and their availability for small / large traiers etc - and at what state of the tide they can be used.

Also, if anyone is thinking of travellng down for the whole weekend - do they have to recover their boats at the end of each night - or can they be berthed in the local marinas etc?

Iam in touch with Alan P and no doubt he, JK and I will be working together on this.

To all

All you have to do is arrange the time off! Everything else will be taken care off, launching, marina berths, trailer/ car parking, beer and even the fireworks and inthe case of Allen C as you will by now have estabilshed, we do have Rib chicks!
