Visit New Brighton at the weekend and there will usually be a few RIBs about as well, bit quieter this time of year though. Safewater has a club but I think that is more a money saving dodge (and a money spinner for them) to get a discount on launch permits rather than an active club. I'm a member and I've certainly never heard anything from them since the day I joined (it knocks about 60 quid off the cost of the permit, only reason I did it).
