Hi Hannah
Very well done on passing your level 1 & 2 courses, I haven't done either yet myself but hope to soon, have you done a VHF radio course yet or do you plan to do one?
Well done on joining Ribnet I think you'll find lots of useful info here.

Regards
Kernow

Hannah,

Again, well done on the Level 2 course!

For the radio course it's a little complicated; you will be able to do the course, and you will get a certificate of competence, which says that you have been taught the radio procedures and passed a couple of tests (a practical and a written test). However, the "Authority to Operate" bit which allows you to use the radio unsupervised and supervise other unlicensed users will only apply after your 16th Birthday. So, it's still good to do the course, but you won't get the complete license until you're 16.

A useful course to do, that will be really fun as well would be the first aid course. It's only a day, and you learn all sorts of useful stuff.

Have fun ribbing!

Hi Hannah
I live at st. Austell down in Cornwall so that's where I do my Ribbing launching usually from Par or Fowey but there are other places nearby as well.
Happily Par slip is within a mile so I can just take the Rib out for an hour or two whenever I can.
Good luck with your VHF course.
Kernow

hi all , thanks to all for replying!
Cornwall sounds nice kernow , il go there some day !

i normally launch at either hythe marina or calshot , as i live in a little villige near southampton. We spend most of our time in the rib down the isle of wight , its great for water skiing , and nice and calm as well .
The needles is a pretty sight too

well done with your PB 1 & 2 . since you are planning a trip round the IOW why not sign up for the LAmpton cruise. A good opportunity to meet a lot of fellow ribsters and a chance to venture with an armada of ribs East of Selsy Bill. Talk to your Dad and who knows he may say Yes

Hey Hannah good to see you also show a good intrest in ribs at a young age. I am only 16 and will start racing zapcats in may. I went on a crusie with aload of people from Ribnet and Ribsters down to Yarmouth and on to the needles. I luanch from hamble most of the time but somtimes im not in the zapcat im in a big blue revenger 29.

Would like to meet up and have a play around sometime.

Was one of the best trips out i have had in ages.

hi craig davis , sounds great ! Is your boat an actual rib cos i dont recognise the name of your boat sorry!
meeting up on the water sounds good , me and my dad normally launch at either hythe or calshot , but then make our way over the the isle of white alot of the time.
If you water ski , perhaps drive around to the left of cows to ozborne bay , its great for any boat towing because its so shelteredand its nice and big too!! Perhaps we will see you out there , We have a 5.5 meter rib with a 90 H.P 4 stroke engine (marines)

thanks hannah

Welcome to Ribnet

Hi Hannah,

A verry big welcome to Ribnet, Glad to see someone so young enjoying life to the max

I went on the Littlehampton Cruise last year, with my Girlfriend and her three Tadpoles . We all had a great w/end a chance to meet up with all the other ribsters yong & old!!

We are normally out in the Solent whenever we can, launch from Eastney Cruising Club in Langstone Harbour.

There are always plenty of others about most w/ends keep a watch on the cruising thread.

Have fun with your dad & boat.

Regards

Aging Youth, Froglover & the three Tadpoles
