Had a look at Multimap
Southampton to Inverkip 470 miles
Inverkip to Thurso 307 miles

Longer route on UK roads than on sea from Scotland to Iceland via Fareo Island

It's whatever anyone wants it to be!

Calling it a "conference" was just a bit of a joke really. In fact we've had at least two, possibly three, "inaugural" conferences which also confused a few people.

Over the last few years we've had one event each year that has been declared as the "RIBnet conference" and people make a bit of an effort to join in making it a bigger get together than normal.

Probably the most important elements are:

- a good cruising area
- decent launching site and berthing
- a selection of accommodation
- somewhere for a meal and drinks

Anything else that can be organised could be a bonus: an interesting speaker perhaps, local guides for cruising, maybe a treasure hunt or other competition, possibly some sort of training element.

Just let everyone know that you're coming and I'm sure that there will be stuff you can do in a 4m boat. If there are more ambitious plans as well then there's bound to be space on a bigger boat as well.

If anyone does want to come down to SW Wales, I'd guess that the 30th of June (friday) to the 2nd of July (Sunday) would be a reasonable time, cos that's when the Celtic Goodwill Raid is apparently passing through - plenty of boats on the water. The only downside to this, is that it's co-insiding with the seafair haven event too, so getting accomodation locally may not be quite as easy as usual, but probably not impossible.

Sounds good

I'm on the three peaks yacht race from the 17/06/06 for 2 - 7 days depending on the wind (not running just sailing).

Just found this thread,

have we got any closer to a date? Cruising up from wales sound like an excellent idea.

I'm going to keep 17/18 and 24/25 free anyway.

NOTHING will happen if someone does not step forward and start organising. He/she needs to put their peg in the ground and suggest a date and venue. You cannot and will not please everyone all the time. A logical place to start is at Ribex, that said, somewhere in Wales or further afield might suit others. Your starting point is to nominate an ORGANISER, or someone has to step forward and volunteer - forget it otherwise.

i agree with the comments below, it is not a conference and to call it as such is very confusing and gives the wrong impression of the event.

to me it is an event where folks get together and go on trips and eat and drink and socialise and calling it a conference probably puts folks off taking the lead to organise it.

i dont think one venue will suit everyone so why dont folks in the key areas just set some dates and start organising an event just like the local cruises get organised and then folks can put their names to the venues that suit them.

some folks will be lucky enough to attend all of the events and others will get to attend one or so, personally i would love to visit as many as i can and commitments allow.

it would be easier if folks set expectations in advance of what exactly might be set up for the event, ie some may arrange a beer tent and all sorts of things whereas others may just arrange a series of cruises over a few days and will put people in touch with local lodgings etc and arrange pubs where food can be sought etc

just some ideas to maybe help move this along a bit

For anyone who is still hung up on the name, I've added a FAQ about the RIBnet conference http://www.rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=13187

If you organise it, then it will be in Pwllheli!

First one to start arranging things gets to decide where it is and what it should be called.

I just don't have the time at the moment to get something orgainised "offically", however I do have the contacts to arrange a deal for berthing, fuel, eating places etc and stil have the weekend of the 24/25th June off, if one of the local guys Craig, Gary etc want to take it over.

Well it looks like 24/25 June is favourite, with either Inverkip or Pwllheli as options . . .
