Any RIB racer with a full national licence fancy trying something different this weekend?

I need a navigator for the National race on the Saturday to race in my 2 litre cat. A chance to race something different with all the comfort of a multihull.

If anyone can help please let me know!

Many thanks
Adam

PS rare shot of non-RIB - on RIBNET
- hopefully will be excused if I promise to post some pictures of our demo RIB soon!

Hi Andre
managed to get anavigator at the last moment! Actually only managed to do the National race because it did not run on the Saturday.

A young guy called Chris Jones stepped in. He was hoping to race V24's this year but it has not happened so far. So it was his first race - all went well and it was good to have someone enthusiastic in the boat.

Shame we could not go a bit quicker - but the boat is still very much in early stages of being developed. It has only done about two hours running since running in the engine and that includes Ramsgate and Littlehampton races! Infact we are still on running in jets.

Our main problem was just not being able to pull decent rpm - so much still to do on set-up, props, g/box ratio's etc. But overall fairly happy and had a good weekend.

Adam
