What is BIBOA?

BIBOA Ltd is the UK RIB club for those who like to cruise and socialise in Rigid Inflatable Boats. Read more.


To take part in any BIBOA sea-going event the skipper of the boat must be a paid up BIBOA member and there must be valid 3rd party insurance for the vessel. Non BIBOA Members are very welcome indeed as crew accompanying a BIBOA skipper.

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...


Two Nations Cruise

The cruise will start on Friday 26th July and end Sunday 4th August

At this moment in time we have three boats signed up

Seahound V with  Chris Strickland, Jan Falkowski and Julian Lyas; Mystic Dragon with Bob Turnbull, Paul Beaurain and John Adlard Bourne Runner with David Dodd and Karen

The first leg will be Lymington to Falmouth for the first night; the second leg will be Falmouth to The Isles of Scilly for Saturday & Sunday nights, then on to Brest and La Rochelle / Bordeaux and returning via St Malo and the Channel Islands

We will keep you all updated on our trip ... or maybe on our return!
