RIBEX Racing Experience

Hi All,

Just to let you know, there will be the opportunity at RIBEX to have a go in a F1 or F2 Racing RIB (passenger only ). There will be 4 boats available over the weekend from 10am to 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.

All passengers will have to sign a disclaimer, but you will be covered under RYA insurance and will therefore be required to purchase a day licence (£15) ... but it will be worth it!!

Boats will be R5 (Jackie Hunt), R6 (John Puddifoot), R10 (Paul Mitson), R66 (Cookee)

It you want to try it out ... come and find us at the show ... or go to show control to get booked in.

We will have all the safety kit .... unless you have a BIG HEAD (or a very small one) of course ... in which case, bringing your own helmet would be helpful

Hope to see you all there!!

Mike

Sounds like an excellent opportunity. Always wanted to see how scary they are with someone who knows what they are doing behind the wheel.
I'll definately be putting my name down!

Hello Mikey, it sounds like a great opportunity, but can you elaborate on the day licence business.
Is it a day membership for the rya? if so are rya members exempt from the £15 charge? or is it something else.
Ta, Nick.

I pretty sure its different from the normal RYA membership - You need seperate racing insurance, you have to take out the same thing if you want to race.

And if that excites you we may still be loking for another crew member to come across the Atlantic with us. Now then, where are all those people who said that going around the world was no big deal and it was easy! Alan P

Well the good news is that R66 the BananaShark should be there on Friday arriving at lunchtime from Salcombe (via drivers wharf crane!) to take people out and scare the you know what out of them!

See you all there!

Good news, Cookee. After watching your unfortunate retirement at Torquay last weekend, we were a bit worried...

See you there!

Thanks Louise - just a throttle cable - never mind! The class III fleet had a lot more trouble - Richard White put a rod through his block!

The £15 fee covers insurance for the day ... this is full on Racing insurance.

This is not covered by your RYA membership ... it is specific to racing ... if you went to a basic race, you would need the same thing .... Sorry

It does mean you could go out more than once tho for the same fee!!

Humble apologies to anyone that was looking for us on Friday - we had a bearing go on the trailer without any warning on the trip up from Salcombe and the delays meant we arrived after 8 pm to the show!


We then had a problem with the hull after posibly hitting some debris in the Solent and the boat was out of action for the rest of the weekend.

Once again apologies to anyone who wanted to have the you-know-what scared out of them but I hope to be able to give you the opportunity another time!
