All depends on actual dates/weather forecast, etc. Too early to make concrete plans but if there's an invasion force being assembled I'm more than happy to join in.
Either way, I'll certainly let you know when I'll be in the area and tap into your local knowledge/meet out on the water.
I've sailed extensively around the area but obviously it's a completely different ball game when you've got a 2 metre keel and top speed of only 12 knots (provided you get the sticks and string aligned correctly and the tide up yer backside).
I'm looking forward to the additional 'freedom' a RIB provides in terms of accessing areas previously out of bounds to a yacht either because of constraints of draft, tidal windows, etc.
Well aware that operating a RIB in these waters brings different challenges so your offer to share your local knowledge is most generous and well received, thank you.
