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.
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.
A RIB is for life, not just for Christmas.
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.
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.
