RIB Record

This RIB record video documents the journey of a team attempting to break the record for the fastest crossing of Gulf of Biscay (Golfe de Gascogne in French).

The team of 6 departed in their Lomac on 24th of August 2002 at 07:00 from Hendaye in southwestern France and travel to Benodet in northwestern France, a distance of 287 nautical miles.They arrived at 17:00.

The team includes skipper Romain Attanasio, who is an experienced sailor and has an impressive palmares.

The crew faced a number of challenges on their journey, including rough seas, strong winds, and technical issues with their boat.

Despite these difficulties, the team was able to break the previous record for the crossing, completing the journey in just 10:00:39 with a cruising speed of 30 knots.

The reported consumption of 940 litres to cover the nearly 300 miles in 10 hours demonstrates the economy of these modern engines (twin Evinrude-Bombardier 250 hp) and the performance of the development engineers in saving energy.

Hellas to Azores Daring RIB Adventure – The Atlantic

This is a video of 2014 about a part of the fantastic RIB adventure Hellas to Azores by a Greek RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) team of 5.

The team consisted of Thomas Panagiotopoulos, Spyros Goniotakis, Cristiano Segnini, Alexander Veis and Norberto Pereira.

Other videos document the journey during a 3,500 nautical mile journey from Greece to the Azores in their Greek built Top Line RIB powered by two Suzuki outboards.

The adventure Hellas to Azores started with the preparation for the trip, where they installed the two engines, modify the boat’s fuel capacity and navigation equipment, and stock up on supplies.

They set off from Greece and encounter several challenges such as rough seas, unpredictable weather, and engine problems, which they manage to overcome with their experience and expertise.

If you want to see what rough weather means, checkout these videos.

Despite the encountered obstacles, they completed their journey from Hellas to Azores, where they were greeted by friendly locals.
