What Is Rib Racing?
Nothing comes close to the excitement and fun of a Rib Treasure Hunt. The Ribs are an adrenaline high, thrilling experience for both novices and experienced sailors alike. A Rib Treasure Hunt is an excellent way of placing groups, whether small or large, into a focused but fun team building environment. Rib Treasure Hunt teams have both land and sea clues to be solved in several locations. The teams are issued with a boat and skipper, maps, charts, clues, stop watches, Polaroid cameras, and tasks to complete. The winning team will have best grasped the value of allocating and completing tasks according to team members' strengths and weaknesses as well as showing the greatest creativity.

The meeting point is the Yacht Haven Marina in Lymington at 10.00am (or 11.00am November - April), where there is ample free parking. Tea and coffee is served on the balcony of the first floor Bistro, allowing guests to enjoy the superb views of the Western Solent whilst waiting for the whole party to arrive.
After a comprehensive safety briefing, the guests form teams and are taken down to the moorings to 'kit up' for sea. Each team will be issued with a stopwatch, Polaroid camera, charts, maps of various ports, a series of questions and a list of tasks to achieve.
We then head out into the Solent whilst each team plans its strategy with a little help from the skipper during the 'buoy to buoy' navigation challenge.
Lunch will be served on the balcony of a famous Yacht club overlooking the Solent.
The teams compete for points, which are skewed heavily towards those who show both teamwork and creativity. The photographs are particularly important, as are the various home-made items that you will need to have ready for the final prize giving - an event not to be missed!
Medals are awarded to all members of the winning team and then the outdoor undercover bar opens for drinks prior to departure. You will arrive back to The Yacht Haven Marina in Lymington no later than 5.30pm (or 4.30pm November - April).
This Event can be run from the departure point of your choice from most moorings in the Solent.
