For important notes regarding Rib.net Cruises please read this:

RIBnet Forums - Announcements in Forum : Upcoming RIB cruises

VHF Channel 08

Rendezvous – Outside Wootton Creek IOW at 10:30am to 11am

There will be two groups this year:

Team Scooby 4m – 5m (ish)

Setting off from outside Wootton Creek at 11am, this is a chance for the smaller ribs to have a go in company, we are looking for a few large support ribs to volunteer to go round with them Cruising speed is estimated to be around 20 knots.

Team Shaggy 5m+

Setting off from outside Wootton Creek at 11:30am with a cruising speed of around 30 knots ish. We are looking for the biggest ribs to run at the back just incase someone needs a hand.

Just like the last two years we will be going clockwise with a rolling start, so this is how it works…

Ribs leaving the Poole/Christchurch area will head towards the RV, as soon as they are level with the Needles they have started their circumnavigation, likewise with any rib traveling to the RV from the West (Lymington, Yarmouth, Cowes and Southampton Water). We all meet at the RV time above and Team Scooby gets a head start

We set off at our allotted times rounding No Mans Land Fort where we’ll meet up with the Portsmouth ribs and our friends from the east before heading south where the Ribs from Bembridge will join us.

There are no planned stops but we will need to stop occasionally so that we keep together and get some photos.

Our last RV will be at the Needles where the Poole/Christchurch Ribs will have completed their circumnavigation and everyone gets in one big line ready for a photo that should be worthy of any mantelpiece

I’ve launched a new Justgiving page and it will be down to each skipper to do their own fundraising so thinking of new ideas will give you a head start in this, but there is no pressure on you to give or raise any money if you don’t want to…

Rib. net is fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

There will be prizes for the best fancy dress in each of the rib groups if you want to take part and have a little fun
I've arranged to meet up with Team Scooby and will stay with them, perfect for my son as he has raised just over 100. so far, he's challenge is to helm 20 miles or so, he is 11 end May, but does have very good boating knowledge, scouts and his school are supporting him

Hi
I am just wondering about joining this trip but can anyone who did it last year tell me the approx distance around the island.

I have only owned this boat for two weeks so just trying to calculate the fuel consumption/range on the tank.

Or if anyone has a 6.4m (ish) RIB with a 140hp 4 stroke tell me how much fuel they burnt.

Thanks.

Seen it and will now sign up. I was going to carry spare fuel for anyone who is concerned they will run short.

My only caveat is that I may not make it back in time.
