Drive’s RIB-riding sea safari

Last Friday our team outing saw the Drive crew hitting the high seas on a rip-roaring safari RIB-ride around the north Devon coastline. Seals, sea spray and smugglers’ coves along with some hair-raising, high-speed thrills, had the team wet and very windswept. Managing to pick the only day out of the studio that wasn’t a […]
