Mmmmmmmmmmmm Class One racing in a commercial dock and only two boats managed to finish on the same lap, lots of collisions as crews were trying to overtake on what may possibly have been too smaller course?

Does anyone know any better?

I reckon Chris Parsonage was better off at home anyway!

They seem to be making P1 look better and better!

Youre getting old Cookee!!!

Now THAT is what I call a spectator sport!

Infact a few years ago we were commisioned to come up with designing a palace in Dubai for one of the Sultans and he specified that he wanted his own Class 1 circuit lake in front of the building like a huge pond!

hmmmmm I gotta start saving!

That looks really naff................. anybody count more than a 100 spectators. If one had gone up the bank that would only leave 50 !!!


One shouldn't underestimate the Ruble (well all 2p of it at least)

Agree with Blu-Fin - looks kind of silly to be racing big offshore boats around tight sheltered docks.

Went to the class 1 race at Athens last year - and pretty disappointing. Not enough boats in the fleet - especially when a couple at least are off the pace and then you can be assured of a few more breaking.

Also - they do not actually appear as quick as they are - because they are so big. Sound great though!
