You don't wanna go to Salcombe, they're all a bit odd down there.

£75 or £100 if you want to be eligible for the prize money!

I have an entry form if you want to email me I will forward you one cookee@bananasharkracing.com it's too big to go on here!

The basic course is the one outside the estuary the same as heats 1 and 2, and the two races in the estuary will be OCR only - the Harbour Master has been fantastic and really helpful in putting this together.

Big party on Saturday night with live music and food in the Ferry - free entry for all!

Anything west of Salisbury is 'the bad lands'.!!

I went there once and was lucky to get out alive.

I'm affraid anywhere outside a 20 mile radius of our Capital is just too dodgy to mention.
