Bob,
Is it run as a true race, or a series of time trial runs ?

So there's 35 boats out supporting the model race, yet they're struggling to get 25 boats for the CTC start? People make me wonder!

Ahhhh I see! When you said one per chase boat... well yeah I cocked that one up didn't I!

I've always wanted one of those offshore 'models', some of em look big enough to sit in! Hope it's a great event!

Rumour is that there maybe an 84" twin engine one coming !! So yes you could nearly get in one.
