I agree with GTB
In addition, submitting info to coastguard and knowing when all are back safely is a logistical nightmare. People will be peeling off at different times, very difficult to keep track of. Buddy system better imo.

If we lose anyone then we are not cruising in company properly. Roll call at the start and finish and a couple in between assuming we all have VHFs that is

Yep, this year's document is http://bit.ly/IoW2014

Add yourself if you want. It's purely informational - anybody can come along, and being on the list is no obligation (just like all the postings on this thread!)

Even if only half the people on that list show up, that's a lot of boats

By then I should have my engines connected to my plotter so I know how much fuel / distance / time Ive got left. Then its just a case of keeping the IOW on my right - isnt it ?

Is it a problem I don't have a VHF (budget has run short and I haven't been able to install an Ariel)

Unless someone has a spare handheld I can borrow for the day?

Sorry about that, kind of a stupid thing to overlook!

I can loan you a Handheld VHF but it eats AA batteries 4 at a time

For important notes regarding Rib.net Cruises please read this:

RIBnet Forums - Announcements in Forum : Upcoming RIB cruises

VHF Channel 08

Rendezvous – Outside Wootton Creek IOW at 10:30am to 11am

There will be two groups this year:

Team Scooby 4m – 5m (ish)

Setting off from outside Wootton Creek at 11am, this is a chance for the smaller ribs to have a go in company, we are looking for a few large support ribs to volunteer to go round with them Cruising speed is estimated to be around 20 knots.

Team Shaggy 5m+

Setting off from outside Wootton Creek at 11:30am with a cruising speed of around 30 knots ish. We are looking for the biggest ribs to run at the back just incase someone needs a hand.

Just like the last two years we will be going clockwise with a rolling start, so this is how it works…

Ribs leaving the Poole/Christchurch area will head towards the RV, as soon as they are level with the Needles they have started their circumnavigation, likewise with any rib traveling to the RV from the West (Lymington, Yarmouth, Cowes and Southampton Water). We all meet at the RV time above and Team Scooby gets a head start

We set off at our allotted times rounding No Mans Land Fort where we’ll meet up with the Portsmouth ribs and our friends from the east before heading south where the Ribs from Bembridge will join us.

There are no planned stops but we will need to stop occasionally so that we keep together and get some photos.

Our last RV will be at the Needles where the Poole/Christchurch Ribs will have completed their circumnavigation and everyone gets in one big line ready for a photo that should be worthy of any mantelpiece

I’ve launched a new Justgiving page and it will be down to each skipper to do their own fundraising so thinking of new ideas will give you a head start in this, but there is no pressure on you to give or raise any money if you don’t want to…

Rib. net is fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

There will be prizes for the best fancy dress in each of the rib groups if you want to take part and have a little fun
Just to confirm that the 1st post still stands
