The Easdale RIB Rendezvous will take place over the weekend 5/6 May 2012.
The majority of RIBs are likely to arrive late afternoon Fri 4th.
We apologise for any potential disruption. We will try to keep this to a minimum. We hoope that the community in general will see the event as a means of promoting Seil and Easdale within tourism which is one of the area's major employers. Seafari staff will be on hand to help organise.

The intention of the event is to try and promote the area to a wider range of tourists. Our local area has some of the best (we actually believe it is the best) small boat cruising grounds in Europe. As the event is in early May we hope it will bring a small welcomed boost to accommodation providers, the restaurants and the Stores. We do know of some people attending who have booked a week's self catering accommodation before or after the event. Last year some of the boats also returned later in the season.

The 2011 event attracted over 45 boats. All 'head to sea' for the day. This year we hope to head up the Sound of Mull. If the weather is good it could be around Mull via Treshnish, Staffa and Iona. Poor weather it may be Tobermory and Salen (Loch Sunart).
If you own a RIB why not join us.

We have been in contact with Strathclyde Police, Coastguard, A&B Counci and are trying to spread the word locally so people are made aware of what is going on. Please be reassured RIBs the size of those used by Seafari will not be filling the roads, the average ize of the RIBs that came last year was around 6m - (the Seafari RIBs are 11m).

Full details of the event can be found at

We currently have 35 boats registered for the weekend. There are usually a few late entries so 40 RIBs are likely.
The destination Sat - Salen, Loch Sunart although some may head on and circumnavigate Mull
Sunday - off the The Garvellachs

Apologies in advance for any disruption, we will have staff on hand and try to minimise this

Over last weekend Easdale held its second RIB Rendezvous. Around 40 RIBs attended bringing at least 100 people to the area. It was a jolly event which we believe passed off without incident in the locality. RIBs travelled far and wide including some who circumnavigated Mull.
Apologies for any disruption locally

Tony
