Your chance to be a navigator in a National Championship Formula 2 RIB
As you all know the Bananashark is taking part in the National Racing Finals at Cardiff from the 1st untill the 3rd of October. As usual we are looking forward to it!
There is a Basic Race on the Sunday (3rd October) and every year we like to have a collection for a local charity. This year it’s going towards our local hospital in Kingsbridge.
But we would like to put 50% towards another charity this time. And that’s the Ileostomy Association, recently highlighted here on RIBnet (Round Ireland Trip). I’ve talked it over with the people involved and everyone’s very keen!!!
We would like to invite any of you who wish to, to contribute to our Basic Race effort for charity
And there’s something in it for you !!!
I’ve discussed this with JK and you can Pledge online.
The highest bidder will be offered the chance to be my navigator in the Basic Race!!! (Subject to licence - all this can be done on the day) There will be other goodies on offer to the succesfull person as well such as BananaShark clothing!
I will open this to Non-RIBnet members and they will be able to put in a bid at firstname.lastname@example.org
The bids will be constantly updated; some by you when you bid on RIBnet…some by us when we check the email.
So now’s your chance to get involved in the Powerboat Racing circuit AND do some good as well !!! Bidding will close on September 28th to allow time for the new navigator to prepare and discuss their role with me. There will be a lot of support for them. They will need to fund their costs (hotel, licence fee etc) including post-race beers! They will be covered by RYA 3rd party insurance.
In the unlikely event of Bananashark not being able to take part in the Basic, we will try to make other arrangements (Plan B ), and it is of course weather permitting!
If anyone wishes to contribute prizes also please pm me and they will be included. Hope to see some of you in Cardiff cheering on the race teams!
