“We’re delighted to be supporting Harry as the Official Marina Partner for the Challenge and look forward to sharing his stories and progress as he makes his epic voyage.
"The transition to a sustainable leisure boating market is something we’re helping to drive forward through initiatives such as our Green Tech Boat Show, and the installation of electric boat chargers across our network.”

Thank you to Winch Design, a luxury superyacht design studio who have signed up as a SILVER Sponsor.
In 2020 Winch Design launched a social and ecological strategy, Life Worth Living, designed to allow the business to develop sustainably, coupling success with environmental and social prosperity.
JOTRON is regarded as a world leading supplier of high-performance safety communication equipment and we are thrilled that they are for joining us as a SILVER sponsor and providing this life saving equipment. Thank you.
Harry recently completed his RYA Intermediate Power Boating qualification with Quality Time Training in Portland. Thanks to the team at Quality Time for a great course!
Lots learnt and a great step forward in making sure Harry is ready for the Challenge.
To make this event a reality we need to raise the funds to charter the vessel and secure the charging equipment and additional batteries we need. We are offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to get your name, your family name, your business or someone on else’s name (or your pets name!) on the Challenge boat. £100 will buy you a space on the console and £25 will enter you in a prize draw to meet the Skipper and step aboard the boat. PLEASE Support Us now - don't wait until nearer the time as we need to place our equipment orders at the earliest opportunity.
We are thrilled to be partnering with Grapefruit Graphics for logo and vinyl design.
It's amazing to have the support of such experts in the marine sector - thank you!
The Round Britain eRIB challenge is an environmental project aiming to support leisure and small commercial operators in the marine industry in their transition to a more sustainable future. The Challenge involves a 17 year old RIB skipper attempting to drive an electric boat around the coast of Britain in Summer 2023. This will demonstrate the capabilities of electric propulsion systems for use in UK Coastal waters.
