  As extreme sports people keen on racing across the seas in state of the art RIBs, you’ll appreciate news of another niche, madcap sport and one of its athletes. I bumped into this lady just the other day when I was least expecting to!

Do you know about the sport of dragon-boat racing and the fact that Great Britain is the leading country in the world, regularly beating the Chinese at the sport they invented? Neither did I, but while setting up our new finance micro-site, I met Rachel Smith, Marketing Manager at Bank of Scotland Marine Finance. A quiet, unassuming young lady who holds a staggering nineteen European and World Championship medals (five gold, six silver and eight bronze).

Along with heavy discussions about endurance on the water, team motivation and outmaneuvering the opposition, uRIB and the Bank Of Scotland worked hard to create a site that is interesting and informative. I hope that it will be able to answer all of your marine finance questions.
There are plenty of FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions) on loans and mortgages and to give you an idea of the cost of buying a boat using finance there’s an on-line Marine Finance Calculator. Rachel is hugely enthusiastic about our site and I later discovered that she’s keen to go RIB racing and has already got her Powerboat Level 2 under her belt. I’d recommend you put her on your team any day - not only is she a first class athlete, but she could help you buy the RIB that’ll out-race the opposition!

uRIB brings the opportunity to help get you on the water in association with the Bank of Scotland Marine Finance, which is a trading style of CAPITAL BANK plc.
