the solent is no good for big rib training it's not nasty enough
theres a training school called 58 degrees north which is in Banff in Scotland they train on a 10 metre Humber and you can guarantee a rough sea cos they are out in Mcduff. Also the principle is a highly experienced commercial skipper whom I respect and that don't happen often. he is also an Opito and an STCW trainer so I'd give hime a call if I was you.
You also need to be trained in a big Rib by someone who drives the Fkkrs all the time it's no good being trained by someone who's borrowed a mates if you know what I mean
