A gaggle of 21s & Brut

Probably Margate again, but can't be sure, Malcolm weeks' boat, Steve Bourne's and the Armstrongs. The old 4 litre Cougar of Len Hall, Priory Glass, ex Robert Cook's Aqauglide can just be seen on the Quay. Did over 100mph on Windermere in the late 70's as I recall.

Gina Campbell and Mike Standring in Bluebird, so must have been 1984, the year of the last Round Britain Race, off the St Catherine's hotel at the start of the Putney Calais, or round the Goodwin Sands as it was then.

Windermere

I guess in about 1980 ish when you could go fast there. John Moore Senior and myself, can't remember how fast we went, but do recall Clive Jones spacing up the air intake/ cowl handle with washers to get more air into the motor and taking all of the gear out, sitting on a backet! We did trim the motor down a little bit for the run!

Help if I could spell, read bucket- not backet !
