Well, thankyou for the kind offers of rides etc, however, having spoken to our illustrious university commodore, he has refused to let me borrow the rib. However, he has said that he thinks he might "pop along for a thrash in the solent"

So, The ribcraft 4.8 with myself, laser (rich) and Chris our boss ( ) will be there trying to keep up with you lot!

Hello Fellow Ribsters

Hi Guy's & Doll's

Well it is good to back on line, pc gremlins have plaged me for some time now. Hopefully it is now sorted out. I know I have not been around much but have tried to keep as upto date as possible.

Paul & Kathleen I hope france was great fun? I do not think we will be able to make this weekend due to work but I might be able to get out during the week now; as new shift patterns give me more time during the week.

Hope to see you all at the church soon.

Cheers
Kev.

Er, well, the starboard tube is still open! More than welcome. At the moment there are 4 of us (including Tim!) in a 4.8 ribcraft, so we're praying for bad weather to really check it out

Pah....

the bateau has just come out of the water for the winter - too much work to make any sensible use of her in the next few weeks. As a relative newbie I would have liked to come along and ruderise Yarmouth/meet a few other ribers. Next year perhaps! Hope you all have a great time.
