Easdale RIB Rendezvous 2021 - Saturday 1st May 2021

We hope everyone is well !

So, 2021 ....... let's think positive and put a date in the diary. Friday 30th April arrivals with the main day being Saturday 1st May 2021.

If whatever the "new normal" has arrived, gatherings are allowed and Covid is in the past it will be business as usual.

If the area is in lockdown then ERR 2021 will be cancelled.

We suspect it will probably be somewhere in the middle. If it is same as where we are now then tourists are welcome and accommodation providers are taking bookings (single households only). Motorhome parking is available on some Seafari owned land. Both the Puffer and Oyster are open but obviously restricted capacity indoors - both have outdoor facilities.

Boat owners are certainly enjoying being out on their boats.

Jess and Tony plan on being out on the water that weekend.

Depending on the situation we may recommend splitting up routes rather than 1 large group of RIBs heading out together and arriving somewhere en-masse but we can look at the fine details nearer the time. The date is in the diary and we are thinking positive !

Same as this year, whatever the final situation is we will make a responsible decision considering the effects on the local community and all participants.

Best wishes everyone,
Carolyn.

Well done Folks I'm sure everyone appreciates your efforts!
You can do no more!
I will try to support the event again next year as I think it may very well fit in well with my other Boating "plans"
GOOD LUCK FOR ALL in 2021!!!

Hi Craig - with another British RIB
First time I came with an Osprey Vipermax 7.2
Last year with a diesel Scorpion
Next year with a SR6 with ETEC 90 twins
Was a great time when I caught the first makrels of my life on board of Crusader
