Littlehampton

All is looking good for our Littlehampton event - so more the merrier.

We have National Chapionship racing on the Saturday and then our Non-championship race on the Sunday which is open to all - so hopefully see loads of sportsboats etc.

Oh yes - dates are 23 / 24 July.

For national crews / boats that race on the Saturday and then also do the Sunday race we will give them 1/2 price entries for the Sunday race.

All part of the Littlehampton Festival - so loads going on and great support from the town itself.

I bet you are after last weekend! great result for the Sharks.

Really trying to make a big weekend of it this year - and would love to see more Phantom / Ring sportsboats racing. Maybe even a few of the Boatmaders might enter?

Gav, Burty, Chaos???

All looking good.

If we can get enough types of one boat - we are quite happy to add some extra Trophies for the basic race, such as:
First Phantom etc.

All about being a fun event.

perhaps could have a Boatmad gathering as well?

Hood has to be Orange or it wont pass scruteering !!!


So how about a Dash then Sept 10 - Egypt point to Hurst castle, standing start. no trophies, no rules, No charge, No licence, no classes, everybody is a rescue boat for everybodyelse.
Powerboats are a non contact sport
just for your own fun & satisfaction
Suppose should check if there are any events on that day & the tide state?

I think him will find that the roof diversion helmet as stocked by Adam is a very good colour match for the cape (it's even got a touch of metalflake in) - and with the addition of a tinted visor, discretion can be assured.

We should have 6 x V24's at Littlehampton. So we could have a V24 trophy for the Sunday.
