Honda RYA Youth Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) Championships
Date: 19 May 2018
Time: 11am, race commencing at 12 noon
Venue: Belfast Harbour
This championship will give a new wave of young RIB drivers the chance to compete for the title of Honda RYA Youth RIB Champion 2018. It’s open to young RIB drivers aged eight-12 and 13-16 and two young power boaters from each club can compete.
The competition takes the form of a time trial around a set of marks. The fastest time wins, during which competitors must complete a slalom, stop exercise and a 360 degree reverse around a buoy, before sprinting to the finish.
A boat will be supplied and an adult adjudicator will accompany each competitor. Each competitor has to battle through the various stages of the competition and the winners of each group will then have the chance to compete at the National Final in Southampton on 16 September 2018.
Registration forms should be completed beforehand and presented at registration on the day.
