When is the event?

Our Ribs will operate from Saturday 8th – Saturday 15th August 2020 departing at 1000, 1100, 1200, 1330, 1430 and 1530hrs daily. Please note that you will need to be with us 15 minutes prior to your trip. An exclusive 2 hour charter can be arranged to view the amazing SailGP foiling catamaran racing on both Friday 14th & Saturday 15th August with very limited availability. 

What to expect

After a safety briefing, we depart to watch the various classes racing with high speed blasts to satisfy the thrill seekers! We’ll slow things up for photos (cameras at your own risk) and for a real insight when we track alongside exceptional racing yachts from just a few metres away.

Will I get wet?

Possibly!!! Although we do supply high quality wet weather gear along with life jackets. Only bring afloat items that have waterproof cases or things that you don’t mind getting wet with salt water.


Ribs are not suitable for those with any muscular skeletal problems or other conditions likely to be made worse by shock forces. We also are unable to provide this activity to those that may be pregnant, have mobility problems, or who have consumed drugs or alcohol.


Prices are £37 per adult and £25 for children aged 16 and under. On Family Day (Sunday 9th August) the price for a Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children aged 16 and under) will be at a special rate of £100. At all other times, a special family ticket price for families of 4 is available for £115.

On Friday 14th and Saturday 15th between the times of 15.00 and 17.00 the Rib will spectate the awesome SailGP races! We are running a whole two hour slot to watch all 3 action packed races - which will cost £120 per person. We have very limited spaces so please express interest using the enquiry form below.


We take bookings from our pink marquee on Trinity Landing every day during the regatta from 0900-1630hrs starting on Saturday 8th August. Advanced bookings by phone can be made from Monday 20th July 2020 when we will confirm a booking line number on this website.
