I'm sure there were or are many teams in need of expenses being shared so kind of selling seats. possible someone with a boat would put a team in if they knew they had like minded crew sharing costs. On the RB site there are a couple of similar requests.

"Sitting arround" the 40 mark.

New guys are pitching up too!

As you would have seen "Top Gear" are now involed, and I understand rival TV shows "want a slice of the action"!

"Fingers crossed".

It has been a tough ride for Mike Lloyd.

Providing everyone keeps supporting him - everthing should be "just dandy".

Greatest Power Boat Race in the world and only the third time its been organised in its 39 year history. That's unique. This race will snowball watch this space....

Top Gear may be the first but not the last.

I suppose we had better email the Graham Norton Show to see if he wants a RIDE in a big Rib.
