South Devon RIB group

Hi,

Just moved to South Devon, my Avon Searider SR5.4 finally in water based in River Dart Estuary- looking forward to fantastic year round boating but looking to get to know the local waters safely- just wondered if anyone is interested in getting together for days out and if there is already an established group/network running?

I'm also looking to take some more RYA quals to top up my rusty level 2 so if anyone can recommend a local company for intermediate/advanced that would be great!
cheers
Julian

Hi Julian I've just purchased the same rib as yourself. I live in Chudleigh and interested in meeting up for some days out. I was at Teignmouth on Monday and headed across to Torquay. My boat is going in for a service this week and hopefully I ll be picking her up late next week. I can pm you my mobile number.

We ride out from Dartmouth on a weekly basis, would be up for a local get together, can help out with launching and recovering as well as trailer storage, I'm only 5 minutes from the Higher Ferry slipway.

Hi Julian,

I'm just back from Dartmouth where I base my rib......new one will soon be ready

Always keen to meet up with local ribnetters for a cruise / beer or both.

There's no formal "local group" in the area....unless I'm being shunned but several individuals

I'll pm you my number.

We've had good experiences with Torbay Sea School, but not for a few years, might be worth a call
