The Cowes Powerboat Festival 2009

Following last years great success, the BPRC are pleased to announce that The Cowes Powerboat Festival 2009 will include not only Marathon Boats but V24, Honda and Class 3 to join us in this great weekend of Powerboat Racing.
The Cowes Powerboat Festival 2009 will be run on the weekend of the 28th, 29th & 30th August 2009.

The Cowes Torquay Cowes race is a non stop race, mono hulls only. We will revert to the original format of all boats crossing Lyme Bay direct and the same on the return after looping around Torquay Bay.

This is the more traditional format followed by Tim Powell who organised this great race for some twenty odd years. The Lyme Bay crossing can be formidable but adds to the challenge of the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes for which it is world renown.

The Cowes Poole Cowes race is for race boats that do not have the fuel range for the CTC but who also wish to be part of this great weekend and to face a challenge of their own. This will include two laps of Poole Bay before returning to Cowes, a total distance of some 75 miles.
The V24 and Class 3 boats will be racing for their overall RYA National championship placings.

The Honda Formula 4-stroke boats will enjoy heats 7 and 8 in their series.

This event has been a proving ground for the last 49 years for both boat designers and builders and there is no reason for this not to continue besides being the supreme test for all powerboat racers.
Long live the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes and the Cowes Powerboat Festival!

Licence Questions?

An RYA Event Licence can be purchased for a competitor at £60 for The Cowes Torquay Cowes Race.

Each crew member must have an Event Licence.

The Event Licence is only valid for one race.

The same competitor can also purchase an Event Licence for the RMYC Needles Trophy Race.
