Once you're a member, it's easy to book. The online calendars forUrban Truant RIB Club are real-time, so you can reserve a RIB in confidence that it will be available - even at short notice, ideal for when you finish work early and want to take advantage of a long summers evening with a picnic in Osbourne Bay.

Membership to the Urban Truant RIB Club is capped at 5 members per RIB to maximise availability to the fleet. With ample availability members can book up to 3 sessions in advance on the membership website.

It’s a real opportunity to drive it like you own it’ said Russell Lake – Director of Sailing at Urban Truant. The safety of all Urban Truant RIB Club members remains a priority for Urban Truant. “If you are new to getting on the water, we provide all the training and safety equipment you need to make the very best of your membership,” continued Russell Lake. “With exclusive discounts to courses on and free practical orientation sessions, we’re confident we will help you grow your confidence”.
