Sundry trip to Arklow

Work means I can't make it over on Saturday, but will be there on Sunday to get to Arklow.

So as not to slow things down is there any plan for pairing similar boats up before our early start.

Alternatively is anyone thinking about going from the Anglesey side, (Chris's slip at Caernarfon).

Thanks

David

Arklow Visit

Hi All,

I have spoken with Arklow Sailing Club and the Commodore Paul Barrett would like to welcome rib crews and offer the facilities of the club to those taking part in the rib run. The bar will be open and tea and coffee will be available.

Bridgewater Shopping Centre recently opened on the north quay and has O'Briens Sandwich Bar, Eddie Rockets fast food outlet and a Food Court etc.

I will be on the quay with some club members who can help with refuelling.

Eugene

Sounds good Eugene - Thanks!!!

Are there any small RIBs going out on Saturday, (I'm 3.5m with 25hp)?

I'm joining David Griffiths on Sunday but don't want to be stuck ashore on Saturday. Having said that, I don't want to hold anyone back by being too slow, and definately wouldn't make it anywhere near New Quay anyway.

Jono,

As Andy mentioned to me, did you need your passport when you went over last?

Thanks to all for a cracking weekend (No pun intended, Anglesey Dave!).
It was great to meet you all.

Thanks especially to Ian and to David Griffiths for the ride.

Thank you for all your help with the refuelling this weekend, and the kind hospitality of the sailing club. A great welcome and a great trip.

Thanks to everyone for a great weekend, really good fun.

Hope to see more pics.

Nice to see everyone who turned out Saturday/Sunday.
I've put some pics in the RIB Gallery.
Thanks to Jono for organising. Thanks to Dave for the ride!
Bet everyone slept well Sunday Night, I went out like a light.

Hi all,

It was good to meet with you on Sunday. You had great weather for the trip as seen on the video links. Watching the ribs leave the harbour I was tempted to cast off and follow.
It seems Jono wanted another look at the wind turbines on his way back.

Glad that I could help out shoreside.
Arklow Sailing Club is a small informal club that encourages all water activities and welcomes visitors. Visit www.arklowsc.com

Now that you know the way over don't hesitate to visit again.

Cheers

Eugene

Thanks to Jono for having the idea and putting on the BBQ and thanks to Ian for the ride on Sunday.

Hope to see you all again soon

Big thanks to Jono and Eugene

Coast to coast in 58mins on the way back, great fun, but very dry fuel tanks!

I'm guessing that would be about 200-220 litres then?

Fuel

Probably just under 200 litres.

Will know for sure when I fill it back up (which I should have done in Ireland!)
