Both those videos have been taken from the boatmad gallery and re hosted on youtube.

Anyone who hasn't looked through the video and stills gallery really should.

http://media.boatmad.com/gallery/main.php

'Multimedia' is where the videos are at and there's loads.

Watched before on boatmad gallery remember thinking the black single engine boat looks very much like the one we raced back around then, the 80's were offshore's best years loads of boats in lots of classes at most venues maybe a comeback with the new drive led by RB08
