You've missed the point to some extent - RIB racing in this country was obviously in trouble whatever happened with the Egypt event.
However from an organisers point of view - we make plans for races including a RIB race at Torquay. This will now not happen which looses us revenue and also is not good news when we go back to the local departments and inform them that we have lost one of classes. As you know this was only confirmed very late on.
As for the UK RIB championships I think that the RYA could have put more of their efforts into promoting it - and perhaps saving RIB racing. Whereas now it would appear to be on the point of no longer continuing?
