Rib Racing

Hi, can anyone give me some advice as to how to get started in the world of Rib racing and recommend any clubs etc.

Are there class categories for racing ? and what type of Rib and engine size I should be looking at.

Andre.

BIBOA is the place to start - the RYA website will give you an idea of what you need in official terms - the size of engine and boat is more dependant on budget - London to Monte Carlo next year is the next big race but you'll need a very good budget for that one!
