new class spotted!

Seems the season for new classes - just seen on Ribnet that Redbay want to start a one design class for their 6.1 RIB!

Don't look too racey to me!

Perhaps they mean they will be offering class's on how to look inconspicuous in one.

It does seem an odd departure for redbay given that their (undoubtably capable) RIBs are more in the workboat vein than the performance one! Be interesting to see whether they get anywhere. They do have a very strong following in NI / Scotland.
Tohatsu tried this in the late 90's and didnt get anywhere.

I reckon it would be more fun if they were racing the 11m boats!
