Hugh mate sorry there is none of you on this particular clip - someone made this up for me. On the extended footage there is some good footage of you, frank, kevin, john richardson, larby etc, all having a great race, ill sort you out with a copy.

Andy and Richard - I'd love to have video of you 2 racing with me, but my sister was filming the racing that day, not boats tied up in the marina. Sorry

Yes Tony is lending me his hero camera for the next race which will be strapped on backwards so I can see how the extreme was going lol

Tied up in a marina? how factual, you know it was round my workshop and I was working all hours to get it ready. Unlike someone, I do my own work and don't import someone to do it all for me then teach me how to drive it which does make me wonder if that someone can actually drive it at all?

And I did take my precious time and guard boat for the race in the R21, if that's your attitude I dont thing I'll bother in future.

And I just hope Pierres head can swivel round fast so he gets me lapping you. If you can remember I've done it before, 3 times in one race, you've never lapped me have you Jacques, or even been in front?

How very charming of you richard! Here we are just having a bit of fun and banter with each other and then you go and get all personal. I'm not going to say anything personal back because we are all mates and we should let our racing do the talking.

You keep reminding the world and his dog about that one race you did this year, but since then we have all raced 3 more races and the world is a different place! Lol

I hope thats not a stab at navigating...

But, since you asked... I have entered 3 different races as a driver... I'll admit straight away that I didn't win any of them but I was happy with my final position every time.
