Powerboat & RIB challenge.

This is really good news. It's time for it to happen again.

Powerboat and RIB Challenge 2014
We're delighted to confirm that following the positivity of this year's Round Ireland event, and the many requests for a PBR annual event, we are launching a series of three alternating annual events, in the same vein as Round Ireland, 'everyman' challenges. Namely, next year's event will be ROUND BRITAIN POWERBOAT AND RIB CHALLENGE 2014, followed by Round Scotland Powerboat and RIB Challenge in 2015 and Round Ireland Powerboat and RIB Challenge in 2016. We hope you can join us on these adventures!

I suppose there is precedent for skipping the bit at the top, but it seems a shame to miss some of the most "interesting" waters in the UK for a Round Britain challenge.

Then again, HMS has a notoriously weak stomach

Are you're referring to Scotland...if so there's always the Round Scotland Powerboat and RIB Challenge in 2015.

This looks like it could be a laugh
