I could have a special (higher!) fee for student members and you could get your students unions to subsidise your RIBnet membership!

How about some students union RIB clubs, or even SU dive clubs, becoming "affiliated" to RIBnet (for a suitably extortionate fee of course)

Students Unite!

Seb,

I be one of those student layabouts.

I am Studying Mechanical Engineering at Southampton uni and am in my 4th and final year.

I'll be up for some cruises, but will probably only be back on the water next summer.

Cheers

Tim

A Uni RIB club had crossed my mind but I don't think there would be many members! I'm on the committee of our mountain bike club (www.sumbc.co.uk), can we become "affiliated" to RIBnet !

We can do powerboat courses and engine courses very cheap though.

Another student over here, currently doing A-levels.....

I did leave a post to JK about a special student rate for silver membership but he never responded, so I had to pay full price

You got in just in time -- before I bring in the extortionate student rate

Good stuff, although it may take a bit of work to sort something out as were all light years apart!

Ill also have to get a boat that works first but i though it would be good to 'test the water' to see if there was any interest.

If any of you guys have got any ideas, throw em in.........students round Britains coastline AND pubs would be good!!

Oh and JK, we want student discount and privelages on everything if poss - membership, boaty bits, insurance - you name it! Maybe a recognised RIBnet student discount card for use in chandlery's. Now theres an idea

Cheers
