Cowes 2005

A little bit of information on Cowes this year:


Powerboat P1 Press Office, 24th June 2005: Powerboat P1 Press Office, UK: The UIM Powerboat P1 World Championship has today confirmed its growing stature with the announcement of Gillette as the title sponsor for the British Grand Prix taking place at Cowes from 26th-28th August.

The Gillette MACH3 NITRO Gel Powerboat P1 British Grand Prix (Rounds 7 & 8 of the 2005 UIM Powerboat P1 World Championship) is the feature event of a spectacular three-day festival of racing with more than 70 boats expected to compete in a series of championship events. The organisers, KBL Powerboat Management Ltd, aim to establish the British Grand Prix as one of sports' blue riband events and promise action-packed racing, glamour and entertainment for all.

Gillette, has a strong history of innovative sponsorships. This arrangement creates an association and launch platform for its latest MACH3 anti-friction shaving gel with a dynamic and fresh motor racing championship enjoying unprecedented growth and offering clean, fast, exhilarating action for those who dare.

P1 has transformed international powerboating with its progressive sporting and business model. Events are now broadcast to 48 countries worldwide and with the Gillette MACH 3 NITRO Gel sponsorship, a very special UK sporting event looms on the horizon.

Not sure what it will mean for all classes as the Gillette part seems to be very much for the P1 event - which is not surprising really.

Just hope that the rest of us get treated a bit better than in the past!
