Part 1 - RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) Race

Racing against other teams, you’ll fly across the Solent at breathtaking speeds, enjoying fantastic views along the way.


To add an extra element of competition into the day, your skipper will give you a series of clues to follow in order to get ahead of the teams on the other RIBs. Concluding in the ultimate race on water, the winning team not only takes home pride, but also hidden treasure and a special prize.


Safety is our number 1 priority, and we’ll provide the lifejackets and necessary equipment to keep you safe out on the RIB. All our Skippers are qualified, experienced and fully insured, so you don’t need to worry about a thing.



Part 2 - Lunch on us

We’ll then head into the New Forest and stop for a delicious lunch - on us! Depending on the weather, we’ll either organise a sit down meal and drink at one of our partner restaurants, or a BBQ and drinks on a secluded spot on the beach. Across both options we’ll ensure there’s something for everyone, please let us know if you have any dietary requirements when booking.


We’ll finish up with the final clues from the treasure hunt, and enjoy refreshments whilst we present the winning team with their mystery prize!



Part 3 - Exploring the New Forest

Before it’s time to head home we’ll travel into Lymington Town Centre. The Georgian market town of Lymington is set on the coast in the beautiful New Forest National Park, between Southampton and Bournemouth. Famous for its sailing history, and seen as the UK’s premier sailing destination, there are two large marinas filled with fishing boats and yachts, as well as two sailing clubs.

The town’s narrow streets are lined with pretty period cottages and houses, as well as plenty of local pubs and restaurants. Famous for smuggling, salt-mining and sailing, the town is steeped in history and is a must see destination.

You will have an opportunity to enjoy shopping in the boutiques up and down the High Street, whilst benefiting from using our exclusive discount card that can be used across Lymington and the New Forest. A truly wonderful day in the beautiful New Forest.
