What is BIBOA?

BIBOA is the UK RIB club for those who like to cruise, race or just socialise in Rigid Inflatable Boats. Read more.

Why BIBOA?

To attend any BIBOA cruises or races you must be a fully paid up BIBOA member. The reason for this is that we pay for an expensive insurance policy that covers all event organisers for the liability of organising an 'event' of any size that another member or members attend.

Last weekend in Anglesey

Last weekend after a 5 hour tow I did a bit of explooring around Anglesey. A beautiful day with fantastic scenery. Thanks to Dean Watson for showing me round and through the Swellies (friend of BOBOA member Andy Micklewright, thanks Andy, Dean was invaluable, the local knowledge was invaluable as the Swellies are interesting at low tide...)

Saturday afternoon.

Courtesy flag now flying ready for the next adventure around Anglesey

Two Nations Cruise

Whilst some BIBOA members were  heading off around Ireland, the boys on Seahound, Mystic Dragon and Bourne Runner headed South for warmth in the Isles of Scilly and La Belle France. Here they are taking a lunch stop in Mont St Michel; are those pints of Calvados !?   The (edited) highlights will be posted here when they return, they were due back in early August but apparently that's now looking a bit optimistic...
