New One Design Class for Ireland

As some of you may already know, up until very recently powerboat racing in Ireland was run by a group of dedicated racers and volunteers. In 2008, Powerboat racing in Ireland went through some radical changes, with the ISA (Irish Sailing Association) assuming the national authority for powerboat racing in Ireland. Since then they have been working feverishly to reform, regulate and re-energise the current classes.

2009 saw, for the first time in almost 10 years, a calendar of races scheduled for all Irish classes and the largest number of boats turning up for racing.
Now that current classes, all of which are inshore circuit classes, are up and running, the ISA have recognised the absence of any offshore classes, currently running in the country.

Together with the ISA, Power Marine plan to launch a new One Design offshore class for the 2010 race season. One design racing is a very affordable means to powerboat racing and with the absence of any other official classes of offshore racing currently being run here we hope to see a good fleet of these boats on the water next year.

Most of you will recognise the hull already, we have teamed up with Suzuki to power the boats and have a very attractive price on a race ready package.

Anyone interested in Racing the new class in Ireland please contact myself or Denis Dillon from the ISA

It's not quantity but quality



Thanks for all the emails, trying to get through them all this evening, been in Vegas for the past week, if I haven't answered your email tonight I'll get to it in the next day or two.

Still waiting to run the first hull, cant wait to see how it runs with the Suzuki, there was a mix up with the engine and they sent us a 25" so were waiting on the 20" to test.

Thanks, Alan

Not mutch weight up there anyway, maybe 100kg total, girls look like they could do with a meal or two.

We sold Wills boat at the show so have a new driver in F4 next year and will is looking for a new F2 hull. If you know of any good ones for sale.

Cheers, Alan
