Busy time ahead for Simon

Simon Wood Power new chairman of RYA Offshore Racing Committee

By IBI Magazine

Simon Wood Power, managing director of Oval 316, has become the new Chairman of the Offshore Racing Committee at the Royal Yachting Association.

The appointment follows Simon's active participation as a committee member over the last year. The committee is responsible for overseeing all rule-making within the UK Power Boat racing fraternity and is the controlling body when it comes to all safety issues.

Wood Power commented: "My intention is to make powerboat racing safer, closer and cheaper and to rationalise the plethora of racing classes, simplify the rules and make the entry fees more palatable for competitors. We want to deliver better value for our members and bring more people into the sport."

"Safety is an area that I have a particular interest in. The issue of setting standards for crash helmets for example is one that we are being extremely proactive on. We have now commissioned a comprehensive report, which should give us definitive guidelines as to how we can standardise on a specification which is effective and achievable."
