We're looking at bringing three RIBs along. Will make our own arrangements for lunch in case we decided to bail if the weather is rubbish. Should be good if it's like last weekend was!

Great news from JK, Mark & Tim M ....I'll be speaking to Folly on Monday to give them most up to date info and ensure peole aren't sat in a corner on thier own.

But that can be arranged i'm sure...I wonder what is needed to be done to get hold of a Parker for the day? ...

Well it just popped up in conversation. Unfortunately I am away for that particular weekend so cannot join you guys. And what I am going to miss is not only catching up with many of you but the blast of 40 plus ribs together in the Solent.

We will be heading down as well with two boats with at least 2 POB on both of them.

As with Tim we will make our own arrangements for lunch in case we decided to bail if the weather is rubbish.

Looks like I won't have definite numbers until nearer the time so we'll just take pot luck and order from the regular menu on the day.

Project is not going so well, so may be in the UK after all. Should I make my own arrangements if I am around?

Hi all..just been speaking to folly and advised numbers may be up again to 'about' 55.

So hopefully we can all sit near ish but those that didn't commit to a menu may have to take pot luck on food...but I don't see that as a huge problem and I'm expecting them to have enough xmas reserves to cover it.

Better all turn up......no weather excuses etc etc

Hi Ladies and Gents/Boys

I have just been reading your posts above.

On the 15th December Zapcat and Piranha have organised a Christmas cruise which will be an all day/evening event which will be running from Sparks Marina (Piranha Bar), boatsandoutboards.co.uk will also be there to support the event. The plan is to meet in the morning for coffee and bacon rolls and then the zapcats, RIB's and jetskis will be taking a cruise to gun wharf keys. Following this we will be eventually heading back to the Piranha bar at Hayling for a Christmas dinner. You are more than welcome to join us, the more the merrier!! If you would like to come along please let us know so that we can organise how many bacon rolls we need to prepare.

Please click on the link below to find out more details.
Zapcat Racing - As seen on C5 Gadget Show World Tour

hope to see you there

Regards

James Millest

I have a colleague with a large RIB ,he is already attending but if others are thinking about going from Portsmouth area I may be able to get him to take 10m instead of the smaller one. I hope he wont mind me suggesting this but with some petrol money I am sure we can convince him to take the big-un
