Perfect for spending the day exploring the coastline, shuttling friends to moored boats, or providing safety cover on a race course.
There are companies that offer RIB experiences for you to have your first taste of being out on the water. Whether it’s a tour of the Thames or taking in parts of the Solent, this can be a fun way to discover the feeling of freedom on the water.
The RYA's Powerboat Courses are a great way to get to grips with the basics of driving sports boats and RIBs and can help you to feel confident when taking your first trip and beyond. Also some insurance companies insist on drivers having certain qualifications so it is useful to have some training under your belt.
There are plenty of opportunities to drive RIBs as safety boat cover for training and racing events at your local sailing club. Most clubs will welcome new members and many run training courses.
