Racing, where to go for more info?

looking at putting a boat together or buying a race ready package (if i can find one) and don't know where to look for info on the classes, number of competitors etc?

I am on a budget so was thinking about 3a, 3b or the new z150 classes.

can anyone give advice on where to look for more information please. seems so hard to get into.

I will be popping down to Torquay 23rd and 24th.

Hi nopaddle,

When you are at Torquay just ask for a guy called Neil Jackson (ORDA) he knows a thing or two about racing and classes, I'm shore he will be happy to answer any questions you have.

In the mean time google RYA powerboat racing and contact their Powerboat Racing dept to purchase a PB1 20015 the UK powerboat racing bible.

I suppose I should be supporting the income of the RYA by promoting the purchase of PB1, rather than the free download
