Seems I would be at the mercy of the race organisers :

MONOHULL BOATS - UIM 1200.3.3

In the Spirit of Offshore Endurance Racing, all competing craft must be Monohull or stabilized Mono Hull unless otherwise agreed by the race organizer.

They are having some "Cruisers" following the event round - looks like that would be your only choice? Still quite an adventure and you would be part of it all.

I am just joking about running out front. If they won't let us compete then maybe they will at least let us run with the big dogs for an honourable mention in the footnotes.

There are no serious competition in Sefrica so we have been reduced to drag racing the Fabio Buzi boats the government bought with a small 6.5 RIB.

Bear Grills was not happy when we overtook him in Cowes with camera crew onboard. I'll read the rules and try to find some money to built a boat, that is all I can do.
You talk as if speed will get you round Britain. It won't. Only a solid reliable boat will do that

If would be nice, but it won't be the same. Got an e-mail back from Mike Lloyd giving me the bad news .... monohulls only.

I am planning an economy run from Cowes to Morocco to test some engines later in the year if anybody wants to come along. Will put out the details.

Hi Biffer, I agree 100% with you ..... but once the boat is built and the engines are tested then it is in the hands of the gods.

A bit of common sense will also go very far, but some days everything will go wrong.

Don't there is much chance of me getting an entry for the RB14 race either , so this will remain as a "monohull club" event.

Perhaps we could organise this as the monster of all ribnet cruises, Andre?

I tried to organise this for 2013 for myself but for various reasons it didn't work out (gutted). I'm hopeful to do it 2014. Just a leisure cruise, probably over 8 legs plus perhaps a weather day or two.

My schedule was based loosely on Brian's route which he's successfully done twice - once with magellan as company.

If this were in early/mid June I would be up for it!

As long as I can persude Mrs Tonto to let me Yeah I know who is the boss of the house, and she does remind me from time to time!

My rib has done this once before when it was new for OPS Rigid Lion, and would like to see if she still has it, but as a challenge, NOT a race!

Hi Daniel

I did not have a cruise in mind and also was not thinking of myself as a participant . We have the craft the crew and the sponsors just need an event and RB14 would be the right thing if it was still on.

I have not heard of a RB 2014 race taking place although the Venture cup is planned to run Summer 2014 (London to Monte-Carlo).
