Re:

I'm going to soton in october, dunno what ribs they've got?. I'm hoping to keep my rib in poole for May and October each year. So i'm hoping to come out on a few meet-ups. Glad to hear there are other uni-guys on that stretch of water.

Plymouth has superb facilities

I would support Chris and say Plymouth, not just the Uni but also opportunities with Mountbatten, Mayflower and the Navy at Millbay for Uni students to get out on the water either in support of racing or just ribbing.

When i was there we used to get well paid to teach for the University as many of the academic courses encourage their students to do PB courses (better than stacking shelves in ASDA, even on a freezing winter day and F7 wind that forces you to hide somewhere up the Cattewater)

Loads of cheap courses from RYA syllabus from PB2 to Advanced Instructor etc etc.


Chris (CJL) did loads of work to get Plymouth Sailing / Powerboat club where it is now

WELL DONE MATE!!

it just took too long for us to enjoy it and have to pay our cash to go playing these days, when you comin down to Jersey with your boat for some serious ribbing and beer!!


Cheers
Karl
