I Think johns suggestion of a one design class racing within the fleet would be good,we are planning to do the next round which is southampton during the boatshow. It would be great to see other ribs out there and interesting to see the diversity of craft given the way the classes have been drawn up

Glad that someone who knows about racing is sorting it out!

Which series - it seems there are two now!

It will be good to have RIB racing again - but think 1 series will be enough! I know P1 have in time plans to have a one-design class running within their series. Also they are hoping to make RIB racing international in time with different countries running to the same rules.

Anyway - hope it all gets supported and we see a good fleet out there racing.

I had an interesting conversation yesterday, and it seems the the one design series is to be an extension of the P1 effort - it is all a little light on details, but the One Design would be the International part of the whole thing.

In essence the existing classes (which haven't actually raced yet) which were based on the old rules and BIBOA's Lymington race would be for National racing, and the International races would be a One Design class.

I don't know why they can't just race the existing classes Internationally though ...............
