The 2000 millennium saw the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the conception of the British Inflatable Boat Owners Association. It was from the success of the inaugural event in 1990 that the formation of BIBOA was established. The Association's Honorary President, Michael Alexander, now more than 80 years young, successfully completed the circumnavigation, showing once again his reknown pioneering spirit to the young bloods of today.

An optional extra! The umbrella rack on all RIBS destined for use in Scotland?
