What is BIBOA?

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

Why BIBOA?

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.

The BIBOA site is run on a platform by a company called Squarespace. They have many great help pages here: http://5help.squarespace.com/

 

2. The membership system (http://membership.biboa.com/membership).

This is where we all pay our subscriptions, its an automated system that many thousands of clubs around the world use (http://www.wildapricot.com). We all have a user name and login for this site. Unfortunately we are not yet able to merge the two logins (biboa.com and the membership system), so we must all maintain 2 sets of login details. It is this system that the committee can use to easily email all members.
