Hello folks

Inshore forecast for SoC sendoff:

Lands End to St Davids Head including the Bristol Channel.

12 hour forecast:
Wind: east 4, easing east or southeast 3.
Weather: fair, some haze.
Visibility: mainly good.
Sea State: slight to moderate.
Outlook for the following 24 hours:
Wind: south or southeast 2 or 3, increasing south or southwest 4 or 5 later.
Weather: fair.
Visibility: good.
Sea State: slight to moderate.

Not too bad then, looks like little 'Quicksilver' will be okay.

See ya'll VERY soon.

Sorry, all, but me too like JK et al have no weekend pass after all! Looks like Peter Giovanoli will be the only NI ribster at the party.
I just MUST wish Alan P, Jan and the rest of the team every success and a safe voyage and to everyone else, have a great time in Cardiff .
I hope there will be lots of pics next week, especially the group shot!.

We WILL be there to welcome you back Alan...
Best wishes to SOC and all RIBS & SIBS.

Just to remind you as we approach 6,000 views, this is how it all started:

Hi folks

I've just been updating myself on the 'Spirit of Cardiff' around the world challenge (hey, these guys don't mess about). Just as a reminder their site is:

www.spirit-of-cardiff.com

Does anyone know if there are any plans for a gathering of RIBS to send them off?

Hello folks,

'Quicksilver' has been out and checked over, the engine has been polished and preened. The sun is shining and I am laying carpet tiles as a part of my pennance to keep The Boss ( ) happy whilst I am away.

Cheers

I have not polished anything but have been wild with the WD40 and grease will be leaving early Sat and hope to be there 9:30 - 10:00 Hope I do not get lost as this will mean buying LOTS of beers for Nadia + the shame (will still buy Nadia a beer for all her hard work though) Will see you all Sat. I will have two spare places on Dromedary if they are required.

Hi folks,

Whilst I will take Quicksilver out if at all possible, bearing in mind it is only 3.4m, if the weather is just too rough for us on Sunday, a lift for Bill and me would be appreciated.

Cheers

Spirit-of-Cardiff departed today at 12:33

Great party last night,
Good escort group out on the water.
No rain - and not too much wind.

Wait for the photos.

I hope everyone had a good week-end and thanks for all your support.

Keep a date free for the welcome home party.
