As above very good idea, would be good to see this set up in other areas once or twice a year,
I'm sure guys here would help out with boats for the good of the sport.

doing it somewhere inland as well would be a good idea, as many inland people don't have access to powerboat racing and many don't know what it is.

Send a message via Skype™ to ciao!
Sounds like it will be a great event.

Good to see Barry and Sheena doing their stuff again

Did anyone think of inviting Mike Loyd,Tim Powell etc.to this event?

My son was the youngest kid to run the kilo at Windermere.

He now has no interest in boat racing, but loves helping out with those that do. (CTC this year)

We must find the new generation whether they be racers, scrutineers, marshals, safety or dare I say it "organisers of races".

Great Weather! Great People! Great Day!

The South East Powerboat Association would like to thank everyone for making this event such a great success! The RYA, Allhallows Yacht Club, the nine race boats (OCR & Formula Future) that took part and supplied their boats full of fuel and free of charge

A big thank you to the many participants, we hope you enjoyed the day and we look forward to meeting you again in the near future.

It was also nice to see some of the ‘old’ faces supporting the event and rekindling their love of powerboat racing.

Once again many thanks to all those involved.
