Long distance race in Greece

The endurance racing concept is really gaining momentum. Ceratinly a lot of interest in Greece and I would imagine you could see a few more teams for the next Round Britain - hopefully in 2012.

They are also looking at a long distance race from Athens next year. Looking at around 1200 miles and stages taking in the various Islands. Some fantastic boating and pretty big seas - actually waters are not unlike UK - In terms of wave patterns if not colour and temperature.

Only problem apart from costs of getting there - is it will be for RIBS only.

I'm sure Paul Tilley would love to fit some tubes to that big Phantom!

Actually, the post (Adams) isn't quite correct and is a tad premature.

Once things are sorted, we will post info, and assuming there isn't two planned races, it's not a 'rib only' race..

Undoubtably! After all, it's a fine design, but not as good as it does without.

I'm dissapointed in you.
