This year we are involved in the RYA Honda Youth RIB Championship. The event has 2 age categories 8-12 and 13-16 year olds. The competition takes the form of a time trial around a set of marks – the fastest time wins. The slalom buoys are set 12.5m apart so that skill and control, and not necessarily speed, are the most important factors.
In order for youngsters to take part in the championship we will be running 2 day courses, the first day will be an RYA Powerboat Level One Course and the second day will be spent learning the skills and practicing the championship course. Successful completion of the course will allow entry to our 1 day local heat.
The winners of our heat will be eligible for the Regional Final in Plymouth on May 5th. Winners of each regional final will compete in the National final at the Southampton Boat Show.
