Navigator needed 3C Cat Nation

Looking for a Navigator willing to commit to a seasons national racing and possibly the worlds in geurnsey!

http://www.guernsey2008.worldoffshore.com/

I am going to race the cat and i am hopeful that for the mainly rough waters of the uk i will do well, I am very competative!

Would prefer someone who has had previous experience in Class III offshore before, I have a Campervan that is designed to accomodate 2 with 2 large seperate double beds, So even room for the Wife if needed?

I am based in Teignmouth and would welcome whoever wanted to to come out for testing and team building exercises...

I have 5 years experience in National OCR racing and love the feel of the new "Armchair" racing experience i had in the Cat last weekend at the monkey, I can guarantee i am a serious competitor but also like to think i don,t take it all too seriously either..

If the right Nav came along i have the potential link to a sponsor to help raise the profile of my recently acquired team C3!

A Nav could do as much or as little for the team but if wanted would be welcomed to come testing or help with rebuilds etc.....

Smile Empty seat?

Cumon somebody must want to ride in the armchair and experience all the "thrills and spills" or powerboat racing in a cat?

Most things are now set for an excellent full racing National series apart from sourcing a NAV

I have plenty of spares for the season and testing is getting faster

If your pondering on it but are worried about financial matters maybe try your local busineses for a few quid to have the boat stickered..

If it helps pay towards racin, the boat could be pink with yellow spots and a picture of blobby on it for all i care!

If I was a few years younger, had a better bank balance, and no RB08 I would love to have got you lost!!!!!!!!!

So are you up for it Night Nurse??

My Cat is getting faster every time i go out. Clocked up 12Hours testing so far and now with 2:1 box she is literally Flying!!

Talking finances is always awkward but...
Have spoke to a few and it seems the norm for a nav to cover race entry which is £200 a weekend..A lot of fun for £1200 a year!

If I don't find someone soon or someone at least willing to do a few races i will have to dust off my 800HP supra and enjoy racing that all on my own
