The New RIB – “Olympian” – is officially launched

On Sunday 28 April 2013, our new RIB was offically named “OLYMPIAN” by Mrs Richard Mark Primrose and launched ready for the first races of the season.  Members will know that Olympian was purchased thanks to contributions, including some very generous ones,  from a large number of members.  The name derives from the fact that she was one of the RIBS used at last year’s Olympics.  (for the full story and pictures of her water trials see here.)
