I'd pay good money to Charity, particularly cancer for a seat with someone to do this. Never been round, only once across from Lymington.

April is wishful thinking, I've organised a cruise each year in April in N Wales and its always erm poo weather, but fun.

May is a better chance of all getting round.

An osprey lead would be fitting and I'd imagine a RIB magazine would accompany and feature. They came out with us once and did a 5 page spread, so for this in the South for a good cause it would make a great feature.

It may be good for people travelling though too? At the end of the day it will all come down to the weather.

Why not run with the 26th of may and have a second ' fall back ' date if the weathers poor. Put me down for a rib and most probably a zap cat as well.

As long as you only cover equal share of costs there shouldn't be an issue. Though a nudge to donate is a plus

Welcome to RibNet! The big C seems to have affected a lot of us on here through our friends and family.

Is there a lower limit on rib size, have a humber assault 5m and would love to join in, but fear it may be a bit too much for a small rib.

Did the round IOW I'm 2010 on a jetski for help for heroes. There were 36 skiers and was one of the best days I've ever had on the water. To do so again would be excellent but fear may hold up other more capable ribs.
