Anyone know Who is running in the Venture Offshore Cup?

Hi all we are running an article and wonder if any of the readers out there in boating land know how many teams are confirmed for the start of this race? Any replies can be posted here or mailed to me at geoff@luvmyboat.com
I appreciate any input. Thanks.
Geoff Davies, Editor.

Interesting we come up with a blank too.

Hi we can't find anyone running, despite having checked with many of the listed teams, The Boss could easily get its name on the Trophy and get to eat all the food at the Gala Dinner, simple.

i know its mad and pathetic that we as lovers of the sport are not told anything as not 'competitors' in my honest opinion they should give up while they still have a shred of dignity! Claire

Because they weren't entered in the first place.
