RMYC 2012 Powerboat Race

Happy New Year to you all, hope Father Christmas brought you lots of go faster bits for your boats, it is less than 4 months to the first race hence the reason Iím sending out this message.

After a very successful June race last year with the race control and scrutineering based at Poole Quay on the Saturday, Iíve been in talks with the Harbour and Council about bringing the race back to the Quay for the whole weekend as it was many years ago, this is where I need your help.

The race date is the 26th & 27th May and I hoping to use the same courses as last year, but any feedback will be taken on board, one of the main issues is the position of the crane, so please could I ask you to reply back to me with the following information :-

Do you intend entering ?
What class ?
Will you be arriving by sea or road ?
What is the gross weight of your boat (fuelled up) ?
Are you prepared to pre enter via the RYA for a discount as per last year ?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Bob, we plan to race this event in the Phantom 21. We will come by road and I suppose enter sports boat up to 250hp. Have'nt a clue as to how much she weighs.

Mike thanks for replying.
We are currently working with ORDA and the RYA to update the classes for our club races, we will post the new classes as soon as they have been approved by the RYA.
The weight is more for the Marathon classes, if we have any boat heavier than 6 tonnes fully fuelled, we may need a larger crane to get the reach from the road to the edge of the Quay.

February update

The end of the road closure consultation period was last Thursday, it looks like we had no objections against closing the road in front of the Thistle hotel for the two days. With the help of Dorset Cranes we have found a suitable location for the crane adjacent to the Thistle hotel, this has got the full support of the Harbour Master and the Harbour engineer. Iím meeting with Poole Tourism and the Thistle hotel next week, so things are progressing nicely. The one big issue is the lack of support from the competitors, it could be a total waste of time and effort after all this work if we only get 10/15 entries, Iím sure we would not be allowed back on the Quay in 2013, so all we ask is a quick post, pm or email giving your support to enter this race. If we do get sufficient entries this may allow us to fund a crane for a Saturday afternoon practice session.

the trouble with renting must be what happens when things break/go wrong

In view of this weeks very sad news, could consideration possibly be given to an award being made, in memory of Tom Crump, for presentation at this race ?
If a collection were envisaged to fund an award/trophy, I would be willing to donate.
