We went to Ribraid in 2004 before we moved to Canada. Have to say we were made incredibly welcome by Gail et. al. We didn't have a boat and were able to get rides for all legs of the events. It's a...

Another thing to be wary of with the ping pong ball type bailers, is not to spill petrol on the deck and let it run through the bailer. If you do, the rubber part of it degrades and the thing lets...

I've been pondering the purchase of a Kodak Playsport for filming the Quad Biking I do these days. It's waterproof and does HD. Would seem perhaps to be a good alternative to a Flip for RIB use?

+1 For Chatham. (You might check out Rochester as well). There is a hotel/Pub right at the marina at Chatham. There is really nothing else until you get into London itself.
