So how did the race go ?
I have been a fan of powerboat racing ( spectator and competitor on and off ) since 1982 and have watched the huge decline over the years . I know Boatmad isn't the UK powerboat bible that it once was but people do still look on the site so it would be good to advertise and report on races like this Poole 100 , you never know it might attract new blood ??

All the do gooders ruined boatmad. If you had an opinion you got shouted down
As a spectator 8 boats good fun

I think you will find that offshore is going to improve over the next couple of years.

For anyone interested Poole 100 was run by an organiser at the request of a number of class 3 teams as an invitation only race to avoid the crap from parties that have no vested interest.

Highly successful and the teams involved have decided on a direction forward for the future.

I imagine there will be a statement made in the very near future that will make everything crystal clear and hopefully the sport as a whole will benefit.

If you are really desperate to know something though you can contact them at info@ukopra.co.uk
