Jono

Thanks for a great weekend, especially the weather! Everyone's going to think that North Wales has a climate like the South of France.

Thanks also to everyone for the rides in a variety of RIBs, especially to Ribster Rog for the beer

John

Firstly, Thanks to Jono & all for another great event. Very special thanks to Dave (Ruby Rib) for allowing Mat,Tom and I along for the ride, since my Uncle Knob-head (we've all got one) blew my engine last weekend.
Also thanks to Charles (Clever bloke), for bringing along his newly designed intercom head sets, which were bril., every rib should have some.
Great to see new faces and such a variety of fantastic ribs.

Thanks jono had a fantastic day what a sight 25 ribs not only did jono arrange the cruise he also arranged the BBQ and then provided more entertainment when he dashed off on an RNLI shout and lost his shorts and flashed his arse to the crews not a pretty sight Hope you got as much pleasure from the weekend, as I'm sure everyone else did. Great piccies from Dave looks a bit different when a PRO takes the shots. Great day Thanks again.

thanks for Jono, and others who contributed to all the arrangements, , it was a superb venue and well worth the 7.5 hr drive there and 5.5 hr drive back.

was great to meet the fellow ribbers from round the country and put a face to a post!/ PM / Profile. We had a really good time and would gladly do it all again.

Was great to see so many boats out on the water having a blast....loads of fun.

Jono....perhaps you could arrange a few more Gin Palace's to be out there next time so they cause a few more waves for us to play in

the sea was very calm which was great for effortless comfortable cruising.

Well done Jono for organising a great weekend and thanks to Amy for all her hard work too. Sorry to hold things up on the sunday but thanks for waiting, had a great trip. It was good to catch up with everyone at the Barbeque and put faces to names. Look forward to the next cruise (if a non working weekend)

Finally belated thanks to Jono for the excellent 2 day intermediate course. Thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot, will try to remember most of it.

Cheers

Dave

Yep, seconded. OK then, seventh'ed! Alright then, eighth'ed!
Just back after an all day journey. Little Thomas decided he wanted to stop every hour-and-a-half towards the end of the journey when it got hot!

Is there a photo thread somewhere? I'm keeping mine top secret until the latest production from Richard B studios is done, which will take a while as there's over 40 minutes of footage... it'll be a biggie

One of the local raggies seems to have been quite irritated by your gathering!

RIBase
Jono

Many thanks for organising such a superb weekend . In my book it was the Rib Cruise of the year. The weather was just perfect and views fantastic.

We have only just got back having left Pwllheli at 9 AM this morning.

thank you Jono, for a fab weekend, we found some brilliant looking dive sites (we spent sometime cursing our lack of scuba gear) which we're hoping to explore next year (hopefully minus the 11hr drive up and 10hr drive back....d@mn those traffic jams)

did anyone see the giant jellyfish?

As well as echoing all the positive posts above and thanking Jono and Amy for their organisation, I'd like to give special thanks to Mike C & Sheila for putting up with other half all weekend, to Dave B & John for entertaining us with some great yarns at the BBQ (glad you had a safe crossing back Dave!), and to all the people who kindly helped me manoeuvre Thomas' pram up and down the step at the Boat Club. It was also great to see old friends and meet new ones and I was very jealous watching you all leave Pwllheli! Watching the fleet arrive in Barmouth from my position on the cliff top was also quite a sight. Hope to see you all again in the not too distant future.
