Why not decide on a commity to organise the circuits and start points including the details of groups.Dont call it a race.Dont have winner.Call it an event to collect data for all Ribnet and boat users. A team to collect the data of boats and their set ups and time taken.Make this data available to all so they can use it for whatever they wish eihter promotion or comparision or to help decide what to buy

why not run the race in a force 10 and let the Parker Baltic just fly through it ;-)

Joking aside, sounds like a good idea i'd be up for flying over to the UK to have a blast round the island, and a pint in the evening with my uncle ;-))

I'd happily provide you with a Rib to do it in, just spoken to Andre and he said he is happy to buy you a pint but you can pick up the fuel bill , and as long as we were crew

If you just wanted an event, it would never make the 'RECORD BOOKS'

To become a record thaat would enter into the books, ie become an official record, then there is tonnes of paperwork and officials involved. Also there are only set categories allowed in the record books. Offhand these are:

Under 30 foot; Over 30 but under 50; Outright.

Then there are the specific race classes, such as the V24 class, Class3 two liter, F1 rib etc.

It is possible for a boat to hold the class record ( such as puddyfoot and hold the under 30 foot record ( as his boat was under 30 foot ))

Puddyfoots record is 82 mph.

To gain an official record you would have to beat his time, and you would need five RYA officails, and the RYA stipulate THREE minimum rescue boats!


However - there is nothing to stop a group of you organising your own time trial, with your own start finish point and your own timekeeepers ( except perhaps your insurance clauses? )

It wont be an offical record, but I dont think many will go faster than 82 mph average around the island?

If you wanted to set something up, I could lend a hand.

Absolutely. As the RYA/UIM are never likely to recognise "Standard Production RIB" as a class for this challenge it wouldn't be an "official" record. So any existing records would not be relevant.

There's no reason why it couldn't be recognised as a RIBnet record though. I'll even put up a trophy if anyone actually wants to organise something!
