Rib Cruise to the Baltic

Just in case I have been missed (fat chance)

I have just completed a rib cruise to the Baltic ie to Gdynia Poland .
the voyage was ubdertaken in a Parker 900 Baltic cabin rib (some of you may have seen in in the Marina)
anyway what a fantastic trip and the weather was on our side. We experienced different sea states

When I say we I mean our crew of three ie Dog , David and myself
we are now in Gdynia Poland where the weather is just superb VERY VERY HOT

when I get back I will post some info/photos of the trip and each leg and before you ask yes we did go around Denmark

Now must go cos a nice cool beer is waiting

Andre
