Last weekend saw the annual Rib Exhibition at Cowes Yacht Haven on the Isle of Wight. The International event attracted thousands of people from all over the world looking for a new boat, equipment or to simply drool at the variety on offer.
TV Personality Bear Grylls opened the event and despite the cold, windy weather the public started flocking through the entrance gate. Appropriately positioned so as not to miss, the first thing you would have seen on entering was Portsea Rescue’s Lifeboat along with a mannequin dressed in full drysuit, lifejacket and rescue equipment... Welcome to the I-Lifeboat stand!
