As the latest corporate members of BIBOA,
, I suggested at our weekly meeting tonight that we might like to go across to Penath for the big send off.
We run an ex-RN Fleet Tender - The Pride of Bristol - to enable young people to experience life at sea and in doing so find out about themselves.
There are two ways in which we might be able to show our support
1) Provide accomatation to "Ribsters"
It appears from this thread that a number of ribsers will be attending the weekends "events"
If people are interested we could provide that overnight accomadation in Penath marina
We normaly carry 12 passengers and upto 10 crew - We have hot water/showers, 3 Flush "Heads", 240V electric etc. etc. Not posh, but better than the S-o-C for 75 days!!
Oh yes, I do a good cooked breakfast aswell!!
Much better than a travel-lodge!
2) Provide a platform for press / TV
Alan - I'm sure you have this covered - but the offers there if you need it. We also have contacts with BBC / HTV from other news stories and bits that they have filmed on us.
So, If any of these appeal - please let me know if you are interested.
