Ribex 2010 7th & 8th May

I was thinking of heading to the Solent on the 7th of May to watch Bear Grylls race HMS across the Solent to Cowes then head to Ribex for a few hours, thinking of a possible overnight stay.

Hopefully Maximus and Matt h will come althougt Matt h may be boatless so might well be swimming since he refuses to be a passenger

Anyone got any plans yet for Ribex?

Ribex

Yes. I want to be there on the Friday 7th and possibly the 8th as well - depending on how interesting it is Doubt the family will want to come, so may be a solo outing
It's only a quick blast up the Solent for me - launching Lymington. Fancy meeting up?

I guess it depend on your budget, Sue & I stayed at Busigny Guest house 2 years ago, quite nice although Sally is a little disorganised.

I'm planning on attending but I'd like to know who is going to be exhibiting.

The website is really poor and I can't seem to find a list anywhere.

Any ideas on where to find them?

OK, I intend to go this year and will be leaving from Portsmouth at about 08:30/09:00ish so that I can get Breakfast in Cowes before going onto the Exhibition.

Would be pleased to meet up with anyone coming from Portsmouth for a mini cruise over.

I plan to stay all day and return in the evening.
