Cowes Week Rib Spectating
See the Cowes Week sailing action from the best seat in the house. Our immaculate 8.8 metre high-speed Rigid Inflatable Powerboats (Ribs) will get you right up close to the racing action in this 1 hour long experience.
Our Ribs will operate from Saturday 29th July – Saturday 5th August 2017 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.
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 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.
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 £36 per adult and £25 for children aged 16 and under. On Family Day (Sunday 30th July) 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 £112.
