The point I've been trying to get accross about it being laughable to revel in the thought of beating a boat from a class well below your own and seeing it as some kind of acheivement, and how one really should be aspiring to beat those above your standing, was shown oh so clearly by the Goldfish mob in Round Britain 08. They were in class RB3, but they took on, and on occasion beat the top class of RB1, not through breakdown, but through outstanding performance. Such performance and acheivement attracts well deserved respect. On the legs where the big boys like Hannes, Andy and Drew won, they weren't celebrating victory over the lower classes!
Whilst this is all very true it does seem a bit unfair on the RB1 guys as they have noone above them to aspire to beat. Perhaps we should introduce a superboat open class to give them some sort of target?

But then who would they have to beat? That's it, my brain's going into meltdown again
