Hi Hannah
Very well done on passing your level 1 & 2 courses, I haven't done either yet myself but hope to soon, have you done a VHF radio course yet or do you plan to do one?
Well done on joining Ribnet I think you'll find lots of useful info here.

Regards
Kernow

Hannah,

Again, well done on the Level 2 course!

For the radio course it's a little complicated; you will be able to do the course, and you will get a certificate of competence, which says that you have been taught the radio procedures and passed a couple of tests (a practical and a written test). However, the "Authority to Operate" bit which allows you to use the radio unsupervised and supervise other unlicensed users will only apply after your 16th Birthday. So, it's still good to do the course, but you won't get the complete license until you're 16.

A useful course to do, that will be really fun as well would be the first aid course. It's only a day, and you learn all sorts of useful stuff.

Have fun ribbing!

Hi Hannah
I live at st. Austell down in Cornwall so that's where I do my Ribbing launching usually from Par or Fowey but there are other places nearby as well.
Happily Par slip is within a mile so I can just take the Rib out for an hour or two whenever I can.
Good luck with your VHF course.
Kernow

hi all , thanks to all for replying!
Cornwall sounds nice kernow , il go there some day !

i normally launch at either hythe marina or calshot , as i live in a little villige near southampton. We spend most of our time in the rib down the isle of wight , its great for water skiing , and nice and calm as well .
The needles is a pretty sight too

well done with your PB 1 & 2 . since you are planning a trip round the IOW why not sign up for the LAmpton cruise. A good opportunity to meet a lot of fellow ribsters and a chance to venture with an armada of ribs East of Selsy Bill. Talk to your Dad and who knows he may say Yes
