No one's likely to go round quite as fast as this lot, but quite a few people have been round Britain.

A couple of years ago a Brian Elliott and Mike Garside both took their RIBs round Britain, supporting Keith Hart's epic SIB voyage on the way. SIB Expedition 2003 - Orkney

There is nothing to stop any group of ribnetters planning a round Britain cruise. You can read a bit about when we did it here: The 1999 Round Britain RIB Rally - John Kennett

Anyone up for it next year?

John

I seem to remember Brian & Alan went round Britain supporting RB4 too - is Brian mad? Or just totally dedicated to the 'Ribsters Round Britain' cause?!

Yes!


IF:
  • you can guarantee ideal weather & sea conditions
  • you can organise easy refuelling for our petrol monster
  • we can do it at a leisurely pace - no starts before 9am!
  • you can organise Richard's time off

Now that's not too much to ask, is it?!

Hope that clarifies things - or have I just confused everyone?!

Forgot to say: good luck to both teams!
OK, so what record is Mr Deacon going to attempt in the new Hot Lemon? "cos sure as hell he is preparing for something!
