I am currently working a major results project on behalf of the UIM, but I am having problems finding the top 3 placings for the following Offshore Championships:
1982 European 3C (at Poole)
1985 European 3D (series won by Mike Sandring)
1991 European 3D (at Guernsey)
1991 World 3B (at Folkestone won by Peter Little)
During this period results were maintained by the Offshore Racing Commission and only the name of the champion was published in the UIM Newsletters.
Your best bet is to ring / go down to the Basildon Powerboat Museum.
They have an extensive library. In fact I wish now that I hadn't donated so much to them because I could have given you the answers!
It would be great to see an extensive list of results on the web with average speeds, I did think about doing it myself at one stage as I am in Basildon quite often, but the time time involved would have got in the way of little matters such as paying the mortgage.
