Meeting point in solent for Ribs!
News Flash!! Big BUZZ for Powerboat /Rib Enthusiasts
Gill from Drivers Wharf Dry Berthing Marina, Southampton has kindly agreed to start a Powerboat/Rib Club at Drivers Wharf. We will affiliate it to the RYA and be known as the 'Driver's Powerboat Club'. It will be for all types of powerboating - leisure or racing.
This will give people a base in the Solent to meet and go boating, also test their raceboats. Anyone who joins (at a nominal fee) will be given a membership card that will enable him or her to discounts in various marine businesses. The Club's aim is to be a focal point for boaters in general. Not a commercial business.
Can anyone help? We're trying to get a Clubhouse with decking area and bar-b-que (as we all like to party and talk boats! He he!!) If anyone knows of a port-a-cabin going cheap or wish to donate please contact me, we don't mind in what condition! I really want this to work, maybe next year we could take it a stage further and host a basic race and more Poker Runs!
To launch the Driver's Powerboat Club and the Marina there will be a Powerboat Weekend on 19th and 20th July at Drivers Wharf. A small boat show on the Saturday which will include leisure and racing boats, water displays by raceboats, a big party on the Saturday night for all members of the new club and a excellent Poker Run on the Sunday!!! This will be for all the family and an excellent event put it in your diaries now!!! The aim at Driver's Wharf is to become a community for boating!
Are any of you just about to start a small business in the Southampton area and want to find premises etc. please email me, I might be able to help!
Remember everyone can join the Driver's Powerboat Club - even if you don't have a boat!!!
Let's get this sport boogying babes!!!
