Some good photographs from yesterday's race taken by my mate.

http://www.andycolver.co.uk/Photos/040612.htm (picture 38 is my personal favourite)

The races get better every time with new boats entering and there was a great turnout of spectators; both at sea and on land. Big thanks to the GPA/Racers involved.

Awesome pics from Andy as usual!

I'm so pleased with the success we've had this year, you've only got to look at the crowd on the wall (bearing in mind this was a windy 7pm race!) to see the public are turning out to watch again too!

Dan and Sam in A17 had an amazing time and I hear Mark is threatening to bring the P21 across now he's found a decent series too!

James had a great first race in his P18 and did incredibly well to say he had less power than the rest, he's now leaving the boat with us and the guys are even helping sort a couple of bits for him before the next race!

The main thing the UK guys seem to mention is the spirit of the racers. We're all mates over here and it shows. It's good old friendly racing as it should be, followed by an amazing night out as always!

I know I'm biased, but I really do think we've got a great series going over here now. The handicap system still needs a tweak here and there as expected but all in all I can't recommend it enough to anyone who wants to join us, you won't be dissapointed!

I love that video, made me want to get out on the water straight away, then I realised what it was all about. Oh bugger! Glad everyone was ok and the engine didn't fall off and sink!

If you look at the tilt-tube when the glare from the sun is out the way, you can really see how much the transom flexes and moves, even before anything broke, pretty mental really!

Trophies are amazing thanks Simon, went down really well and really make a difference!!

Sadly the local post orifice took it upon themselves to assume I wouldn't be at work on a saturday (it's like that over here!) and so they didn't get delivered until yesterday this time around! Waiting for people to pop into work so I can dish em out!

I'm waiting to see the idea nabbed for every other race series now!!

Cheers, James

It's a Bernico F2 with a 2.5 260, former ski racer on the continent.
