Don’t miss RIBEX, the annual rigid inflatable boat festival, which takes place on the Isle of Wight tomorrow.

There will be more than 100 exhibition RIBs afloat, with shoreside exhibits and displays over the three-day event, from 3-5 June.

Various try-a-boat schemes are sure to be popular, as will be displays by the Thundercat fleet, a twin-hulled inflatable similar to a Zapcat.

Punters are expected to arrive in their droves in their own RIBs for the Cowes event, from Friday.
