Peter we all know your intentions are good so the thread itself and content does not distract me from an interest in supporting the event. It actually makes me more interested in finding out more. It's good you have made the effort.

On a more serious note, I think that it's to Peter's credit that he sprang for £100 first off. You'd need a corkscrew to get £100 out of my wallet...

As for the deleting of the thread, I think that when you start something on here, you have cast your bread on the waters and must see what comes. RIBnet is a bit like a pet animal, it needs a lot of patience and there's no point losing your temper with it or walking away from it when it doesn't do what you want. Work with it and it works with you.

I usually count to 10, you might want to pick a higher number Peter

I too wish them all the best on their journey and hope they do raise money for the charity. I also congratulate you on trying to raise awareness of it.

However you can't blame people for being a little dubious to part with cash after your statement that said funding would come from corp sponsorship and donations. That's what prompted me to post, rightly or wrongly.

why would anybody choose, St Andrews as stop over via a boat....unless it is St Andrews you want to see...

But I suggest you contact St Andrews Sailing Club , and let them know your coming...you might be able get money from them!

They not used to getting visitors to harbour...hope the tide is in when you arrive very tidal harbour, and if recovering from beach lovely surf...

I was going to reply the following "I'll supply you use of a Ribeye provided you pay for it as I wouldn't want to be supporting your jolly"

But then I did this 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

New reply. As the dragons normally say. I'm out!

It works:whistling

I'd take the view that Peter is a positive contributor to RIBnet...as a trade member he pays his fees, offers a buy and sell service, plus, is not short of advice to those seeking help.

It may be, having been given some 'advice' himself in this thread that he now appreciates that he may have reacted - to quote Wilk - before the 10 seconds were up.

How about cutting the guy some slack and deleting the thread?

We live and learn. It's an open forum so I bear no ill feeling towards the decision. At the end of the day it makes no difference if I'm a trade member or standard member we all should get the same treatment. I'm sure had this issue been raised by a higher standing/serving member the decision would remain.

In this instance it was a personal thread rather than trade, I am very short of patience, I do react to things personally when I should have given a "business" response based on it being on the back of the "business" name. I don't think I've done anything wrong but clearly it could have been done differently. I guess I was just disappointed to see such a "community" fail to support such an event. I accept I could have put more detail up to assist but I just did not have the time!

As I said, discussion closed. Trouble is it keeps rearing it head bringing it back to the top. It's an open forum so that's the way it is. I'd rather the focus go towards the actual event or similar events currently going on

Hmm... Is this the same bunch that arrived in Barmouth yesterday (on a trailer...) and went off into some of the worst sea conditions I've seen in quite a while?

Initially I thought it was just a bunch of idiots - but it's even worse if a group of people from the emergency services launch into ridiculous weather, where if they needed help (which given the conditions, wasn't unlikely), would put the lives of others at risk if they had to rescue them. The fact that they made it would appear to be more luck than judgement - and on the basis that they were already trailering sections - it seems like stupidity to me.

(For info, that 3 hour trip takes less than 25 minutes on an 'average' day).
