Honda

Well it was the honda awards on friday at the savoy,fantastic well organised event 350 people. Shelly got her well deserved award for winning 225 ,and the 150 boys won 2 tickets to go and race in new zealand this year. Honda also announced this years calendar new venues also we are going back to cowes. They really put a massive effort into powerboat racing. This year we have 18 boats on the 225 start line and a large fleet of 150. We are really looking forward to some exciting well run racing.

Shame we (offshore) do not share some venues - as I see it our sport is too small to be divided - would be great if we could get all classes together!

Yep "Caladonian Princess" Not bad but it all happens along the dockside anyway, opposite bank to the boat, but all in that area, really cleaned it up and it's alright for a night out or two, , three, four, five ............................
