Organising Sib trips

Post by chris moody » 10 Jan 2019, 18:40

We have just done the January sib trip, and I’m in the process of planning another trip for March. I’m happy to run several sib trips this year for the forum, all based around The Solent area.

However I’m keen to visit other areas of the country that I’m not familiar with, so if any members want to organise some further sib trips in their own area that they know that would be great.

Anyone up for organising a sib trip?

Fowey, Carrick Roads, River Dart or River Tamar type areas sound good - never explored by water only ever from the riverbanks. Chichester Harbour sounds good too. Not investigated charts - just what looks nice from the road!
Please feel free to ask questions about training & RYA qualifications, if you're not local we will try to point you in the right direction!

Anyone in Wales fancy organising a trip? Menai Straits maybe ? Or Pilots Cove (at high tide so we have the island to ourselves) ?

Guys,

Based in Northumberland over the summer season and launch from Beadnell Bay.

Would love to organise a group trip but as we beach launch only, are very weather/surf dependant. Committing to a slot for a trip, even at minimal notice, I fear would be more ‘miss’ than ‘hit’

However, if perchance, anyone may be visiting the area we would be more than happy to ‘go boating’ and offer a bit of local knowledge. On a good day you can bay hop, take in the local castles or even venture out to the Farne Islands to see the seals and puffins. Or stay in the bay for a spot of fishing/towing toys/wakeboarding/chilling etc.

Can look like this;

Good day in the bay

Or like this;

Out to the Farnes;

Ya know, I have never been to Northumberland, would like to give it a go, maybe stay for a couple days, do a bit fishing. I could do short notice, and prefer to do that, I don't like booking my life away, and poss better idea if the weather is changeable.
