This weekend - Cardiff/south West ?

Not really a cruise as such but is anyone thinking of anything fairly low key & not too far from Bristol that I could tag along with ? I'm going to have to 'man up' & try launching on my own as the other half's away, and the weather is looking too good to miss out on !. Was thinking of going to Cardiff bay but can head further afield if more chance of friendly faces to help / laugh...

We'll be out with both boats in Fal this weekend. Free camping at our's for Ribnet members.
It's a longish drag from Brizzol.

Should be a few RIBs out in Pembs - a little bit nearer than Fal (nicer too )

I had the timer running on when you'd make a counter offer.

Or there may be a spare room in a static caravan nearby. What's your mam doing this weekend?

Right lets have a go at this picture thing... most of the titles are self explanatory, suffice it to say, fantastic weekend !

Most of the dolphin ones didn't really come out, I have loads of pictures of random bits of water where they'd been a second earlier....

Sundays outing - playing with waves that look & feel quite big from a little 4m boat ! I don't have anything sensible like a backrest or foot straps so have to sort of grip the console with my legs to avoid sliding back too much ...
