Ribbing at Night (Video)

I had the longest ever day at work! so many teleconferences, dealing with various people and did not even sleep well night before! So by 4pm all I needed was just to go on the rib and have a slightly different Friday night out with the gf!

Watch The video of us Ribbing at 10pm in Tidal Thames.... We were returning back after having dinner/drinks at Teddington Lock!

Nothing better than night ribbing. I remember coming back from Dartmouth to Salcome last year at 11-00pm on a perfect still night with just a slight mist, it was probably the most atmospheric experience I have ever had with Start Point Light house lighting up the whole bay. Amazing !!!

Nice video.

Can you dim the screen? I find it a lot less distracting when I dim the screen down, helps with night vision.

Agree! We had to do it eventually.

As you can see it was not too dark (just after 10pm) and I could still see but I think it was after 11pm when it was impossible to see anything without dimming the screen.

I had installed LEDs inside the rib which was ON earlier but HAD To be switched off!

It is a real experience, we plan to do it more often!
