Pay to attend a Rib Event in the Solent?


My view is good luck with your venture. However !

The issues regarding insurance on any event has been discussed in depth on here before. Hence the way we undertake are own get togethers. Each one of us is responsable for our own safety.

Insuring for an accident is one thing covering liability is a mine field.

From what I have read on the threads that took place over the easter, there were some pretty challenging situations for people to cope with.

I am not knocking what you are trying to do however, those poeple who enter sailing regatta's are competing in organised racing events.

When I organised the visit to Ribex last year we all had to pay to enter the "Boat Show". The other costs involved were for accomodation, berthing & food to attend the event. Even the prizes presented over the w/end were donated.

Not sure what it is you are trying to offer, perhaps some more precise details would help people make an informed descision. I for one will wait and see what transpires.

Once again good luck.

Hi Stu

It's a good idea but i think you will get more takers if you made it a charity event eg RNLI people pay a entrance fee 20 ? it includes some food nibbles prizes ????? but whats left is donated ie 5 per person for nibbles 5 per person for prizes and 10 per person goes to the RNLI a disclaimer would need to be typed up to say the event organisers accept no responsibilty for loss damage accident or injury to participants during the event . If you need a hand give me a shout
