[QUOTE=Daniel;503021]Hope the 2nd build is going well Alan - where are you departing from in July, there should be a rib gathering for the send off.

The build planning is fine and it is being built by ABC Marine on Hayling Island. Accessible by water if anyone wants to come and have a look in the spring. The plan is to leave from Seawork or maybe Port Solent. Alan P

There you go Willk - we were worrying about nothing - cirumnavigating Corsica in the nice warm, non-tidal Mediterranean Sea is the same as circumnavigating Ireland with its very tidal, not so warm, combination of interacting water systems ie North Altantic Ocean, Celtic Sea, St George's Channel, Irish Sea and North Channel - and not to mention more headlands than you could shake a fist at - simples

I know I know that it will be totally different, but not impossible

No one said it was impossible - indeed it is very possible - it is done all the time - usually by those who respect the "sea" and the advice of people who have done it before or know their local area

No problems

Yes the west coast of Ireland is trully spectacular - I go to Achill Island, which you will pass on the way to Newport, for a holiday every year.

Merry Christmas

Newport is my port if you catch my drift. The west Coast of Ireland can be a very brutal place. If the weather is reasonable I would be of the opinion that a crusing speed of circa 18 kn would be good enough going for the small ribs (like mine) I would love to take part in the adventure however money is tight and I have just had a new arrival in the last few weeks. I now have 3 under 4 which brings its own difficulties. I find that I get out on my boat a lot lot less than I used to (3 times last year and 4 the year before) Before they were born I would get out about once a week.

I must get the telly fixed

Hi there,

Me too want to join, even on Gilles rib!! Fantastic rib btw. Only thing is I will be in the Med that time. I love to cross to the UK. And being a BS member I already had the chance to join you guys in North Wales, Anglesy on Tony's Domino (I have the same Ribquest Rib).

Gossh I hope the weather will be fine and you will all have the time of your live. Yes having some waves adds to the joy, does is not?

I hope there will be some participants with a GoPro or sortlike device so that we also can have some fun afterwards.....

What about BS Tony, does he participate???

Also a Belgian Pneumatic Member
kind regards
Michel

Wow. You are a glutton for punishment! 3 under 4! OMG, your first and second must have been both easy births and babies, respect.

Love to catch up when our luttluns get bigger. I got my first out For the Olympics flame at 6.45am, second time on boat, filmed and a day she'll remember for life when she sees it. It's hard graft though. Beat of luck.

Went last week to the Baltic Sea to make a test run with the SR . Fully packed , 150l petrol and 2 people on board we circumnavigated Rügen .
Fuel consumption 0.45l/km with my 90hp 2stroke Yammi .
I agree that the Baltic Sea is a duck pond in comparison to the Irish Sea / Atlantic but it was fun anyway although freezing cold
Was a good test of my new drysuit and the Gecko helmet .
