Either that or he had one dram too many and completely missed his home country on the way back and is now somewhere mid-atlantic.

I'm sure Tom has a "homing device" on the boat so Willk can't run away with it.

Jeeze lads,
C'mere, were Irish.
Visiting a fine whiskey producing distillery.
With a party that could not be beat in Redbay saturday night.
You honestly expect pictures and posts within 72 hours of that shindig ?

As we start to sober up we will get you something to ogle over.
Needless to say we made it home safe and well, and had a ball, thanks to team Redbay for an excellent day. Wx was not too bad, nice 4 meter swell for us to dance to Islay and back on ! Ardbeg had a lovely spread too, even some fine live music for us to enjoy too.
Looking forward to Ardbeg2012

Did the new drive legs survive the DD/Willk test this time? Or were you being more gentle this time with Tom watching over your shoulder and you'll need take it back out for another test to prove it!

IIRC you don't inbibe the evil drink so there's really no excuse for you not having posted pics...

...
I can vouch for the fact that despite theyre best efforts they did not manage to break the leg this time and also that fact that toyota?? cars can wheel spin

Lads, look, its grand, don't panic about it.
Willk will get the pictures up shortly.

I wish you all could have been there, not saying it was the party of the century, but I left smiling as did many. Also my Toyota, which some of you are previously traveled in, may have put down a little rubber on the road, but then I had a heavy load on one side and the car was heeling over to port slightly :-)
Not pointing fingers :-) mr police man, honest, she was heeled over!

I do look forward to meeting all on the Redbay Ardbeg 2012 tho !
OK, so there are some photo's available via the Redbayboats website, News Section or for the lazy, click here Redbay Boats

That might keep ye all happy till Willk gets his hands on ye.

Lads !
look at my profile, I drive a 4 meter searider, I don't own a redbay at all.
Nobody ever said you had to be in ownership of a Redbay to go to Ardbeg.
But you do have to arrive aboard a Redbay if you wanna be on the Ardbeg 2012 :-)

Hi guys!

I'm just home from the best four days I've had since... oh yeah, maybe this isn't the forum for the "since" story

Anyways - too tired tonight to start with the craic, but yes, as donegaldan said, a great time was had by all and I have the bruises to prove it

Thanks indeed to Team Redbay for slipping us Redbay Ribless types a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket, to Tonymac for putting me up/putting up with me and laying on a day's wave hopping in his Humber and to Charles Stewart at Redbay Powerboating for a really excellent Training Experience.

Worth mentioning too, that while it was a Redbay day, there were a gratifyingly large number of RIBnetters there

Photos etc. to follow...

Nite!

Yippee! What a day out!!!

Still smiling and laughing at the waves we played in

Thanks MIGHTILY to Redbay Boats for organising such a bash and for allowing Willk, Donegaldan and I to take one over to Ardbeg. (MAd fools)

Thanks Donegaldan for the flying lesson and Willk for the sea safe equipment!

It was a great four days. Thanks Willk for the company on our wave hopping on Sunday and the great meal in Harry's. Many thanks to Charles Stewart of Redbay Powerboat Training for the excellent two days of training. I'm still laughing at playing with that new boat in a Force 7/8 at 27knts! AND letting me navigate Larne Harbour on a night exercise! What possessed you Charles?

Ok, Ok you lot. you wanted some photos, so here are some;
