Meetng

Nice idea, West Wales is a good venue.
No Solent double tides, good B&B and good coast to explore.
Whatever I would certainly consider it.
Dave


ps West Wales (Pembrokeshire) is 100 miles WEST of Cardiff. The M4 stops about 20 miles from the most beautiful place in the UK.

MASS MEETING 2003

I think that this Mass meeting needs some serious organisation as I believe that if someone doesnt take firm control of it it will just go into the archives.

We need someone to decide the Location(which will never suit every one) and Dates that are far enough ahead that people can plan (and again wont suit everyone) And a person with experance and organisation skills.............

I THINK CHARLES IS THE PERFECT GUY FOR THE JOB, if the accepts the challange??????

I THINK IT SHOULD BE NEAR PLYMOUTH also......(west of it please)

I THINK IT SHOULD BE HELD AROUND MAY

So lets get this Meeting going and all meet up for a bit of Ribbing, drinking, talking and Laughing.

Organiser

If anyone has any serious reservations with regards to me co-ordinating this event, please speak now -- or forever hold you peace! I will give everyone an opportunity to place their comments on this thread by next Friday 29 November 2002, after that I will start a new thread exclusively dedicated to this inaugural RIB.NET INFLATABLE CONFERENCE week-end

Charles,
As a "local" to Plymouth, I offer you my services as a local leg-man and general factotum.
(Having just re-read what I have written, I make myself sound like a sex-starved member of the Italian Army)
Anything I can do to help, pl. let me know.

Well as the person who kicked off the idea I am happy for anyone to take over and organise it. Just name the time date and place and I'll be there. Go ahead Charles.

What about Falmouth?
Lots of room, all facilities (Marina/accomodation and drink), lots to see, good cruising area, fascinating coastline, etc etc

Too Far West!

For a weekend, Plymouth is about as far west as is practicably driveable for anyone in Sarf or East England. Falmouth is a wonderful place but too far away IMHO. In fact probably quicker by sea from Plymouth in a RIB than by road!

Only problem with Brian being local leg man is that everytime he has organised a cruise in the SW the weather has been terrible!

Plymouth is a GOOD IDEA!!

I went to the Poly there loooong time ago and spend 4 years. Now Plymouth Poly is Plymouth Univercity.
I'd love to go there again and see the place. Use to do a lot of sailing too up to Wheatsand Bay (did I spelled it right??). The little coves there reminded me of Greece.
Is a lovely place. GOOD IDEA I'm in 100%

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, yes. (Do you see the "Vicar of Dibley" in the Channel Islands?)

But seriously, Plymouth can probably offer more than Poole, and as I've just signed up for another six months of stress with (ahem, can't say) then I'm more than willing to let someone do all the work

So, you're coming all the way by SIB then, Charles?

He sure does, Manos. He's on BBC West TV just before 1900 each evening. My regular weather update for Cornish waters. He's gettin' on a bit now. Bit like me....

Good grief Manos, You went to Plymouth Poly too? That makes 4 of us! You, me, DGPW and Tiger 2 (IIRC). Judging from your photo it was a little while ago? I left in '90.

Also had the joy of being taught by Craig Rich - didn't beleive it at first when someone told me he was on the telly but true enough there he was reading the weather! Other lecturers I remember with some fondeness were Fred Weeks and Tony Redfearn. Remember them?

Plymouth is an excellent place for a weekends cruising - Brian has run a BIBOA cruise out of there for a couple of years running. Lots of places to go and see + lots of accomodation to be had.

Cheers,
Alan
