That is one impressive little RIB . The RI13 event tended to split into two groups,the big boats and the little boats. Sometimes the big boats set off first,on other legs the little boats set off first. Baby Blue was a little boat but didn't seem to know it. When we hit a really nasty sea we thought that the little boats would really suffer only to be overtaken by a flying Baby Blue! A really well balanced well helmed RIB a credit to you Trevor

Great vid. Just shows how different length boats in different wave patterns can have v surprising results. Well done all for getting around Ireland. Tough and v resilient crews. Hour after hour, day after day is energy sapping.

The seat base was set 430mm from the deck - this was the height recommended by Coastal Pro for my height. If you're under 5'9 they might want to be a bit lower.
