ITCA (GBR) are looking for two new custodians for our RIBs. Having these RIBs enable us to run our events in a way which is effective and safe. As well as helping out the class, we are able to offer the following incentives from 2021:

40p per mile travel expenses to and from ITCA National events

Half price entry to all National Series events (excluding the National Championships) for one sailor

Custodians would need to store their RIB and bring it to all NS events and the National Championships. ITCA may be able to help with covered storage costs if the custodian is not able to store the boat at home.

If you can help email: [email protected]

Thank you!
