Excellent day out, certainly blew a few cobwebs out. We seemed to have lost a couple on the way home, last seen staring into a into the bottom of a Guiness glass in the Folly

Very cool day Big thanks to Jimbo for the ride too.

It's quite scary that people who've never met me know who I am..!

Big thank you for the rather nice Guinness Polo shirts, much appreciated to get us into the St Patricks atmosphere. A large number of ribnet were seen wearing them

Thoroughly enjoyable day had by all.
All 72 of my crew had a good time and are keen to go on the next one! thinking about staying over next time as the drive home is a bore when you're kn@ckered... [and we can get on the Magners!]
Bit lumpy leaving Cowes and took a few over the nose and sides but we soon dried out.
good to see you all again.
Good effort all round guys.
Will post pics ASA but hoping for too much!

Just got back

Well we eventually dragged our backsides out of the Folly at 6.30pm, pleasant run back in the dark. Thank you to a superb crew, good laugh.

Paul I am pleased your camera is still working and I am really sorry for sending that quite spectacular feckin huge wave over you, Kathleen and just about everything in your rib.

Don't forget me Richard! I only got wet feet though You'd need a tsunami to get me completly wet Might be possible with 600hp on your next one.

Thanks Paul and Kathleen for the trip out. Kathleen wasn't happy with just one free T shirt, she had the one off my back too!

Hope tomorrows trip back was as smooth as ours today.

Thanks Richard for the SAFE trip back to the dump. Top man.

Missus was fairly happy on my return and Ryan was over the moon that Paddington got home safely (don't worry Paul, I didn't tell him about hangmans noose you made )

Might post some picks tomorrow, but off to bed know as getting up at 02:00hrs in the morning.

As Pete says, the shirts went down a treat at the Folly, I put the box down and within minutes Guiness tops were everywhere. Hope the trip back went OK, and the new RIB continues to please. If you are ever in the Solent area again, give us a shout.

Sorry we were late and missed the fun of joining the pack and blasting together to Cowes. Must say not having to go round Selsy Bill and only to Chichester Marina had made a change.

Nice pictures hope to catch up with you next time

also I guess that means no Littlehampton cruise this year

Firstly a huge thank you from Gill and me to Richard 'very Nauti Buoy' for a cracking trip on your superb rib. HUGE THANK YOU.

Secondly, thanks IanM for the test drive too, an extremely nice rib that.

Third, thank you to everyone for a great day (and evening) out, we both had immense fun.

Here are just a few of the pictures what I took. There are a few of the evening in the Folly but I will leave those for another time.

Sorry I didn't make it for the run. Got the new pride & joy in the water at about 0900, but hadn't realised just how feckin big she was going to be on a trailer! Having discussed tides and lymington slip with some of you guys, it quickly became obvious that we'd either have to come in by about 12.30 or wait until after 5. With a loooong road back to Fishguard I felt it best to take the earlier option and set off with a decent amount of daylight ahead of me. We did manage a blast up towards Southampton before coming in and did have a great time, but was hugely looking forward to the folly and all that (no doubt) went with it!
Glad that the Guinness tops found good homes (thanks Ian M) and nice to know that the people on RibNet are just as helpful in real life as they have been on these boards over the past months.

[QUOTE=Peter J;191082] Back home now. It was a bit lumpy in the solent, got a bit of a soaking.

Nice to meet all of you that I did meet and put faces to the names.

Many thanks to Paul and Kathleen for making me so welcome.

Totally agree Peter. Great day out and the return trip mid afternoon was quite exciting. Fortunately I managed to position my Mother in Law to shield me from the worst of the weather so all worked out ok in the end!

Good to meet some new people and my youngest daughter Vicky
is still telling anybody she meets about winning the prize for being the youngest there! We're now looking forward to the beach bbq later in the summer.

Cheers. (and some photos)
