UIM CHAMPIONSHIPS

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.

Any ideas?

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.

Wow, that was a quick reply!

Sent Peter Little an email about a month ago but received no response.

Peter Little has been on the phone and thinks Bjorn Rustrom (Norway) was runner-up at the 1991 World 3B, but he cannot remember who was 3rd - may have been Roy Smith.

I am a "Friend" of the Motorboat Museum down at Basildon and have spent many hours in the library. Another friend is Ray Bulman but he was unable to help.

Yeah but my knowledge is piffle when compared to my old mate Graham from Portsmouth - his records and photo´s are equal to John Crouse I would imagine, but he´s a little shy when it comes to posting on here. I am at present encouraging him to show his archive to the world. He would certainly be able to answer the question!!

I think Peter is right with Roy being 3rd overall as he won the 2nd race which was also a very rough race which Paul Rolf at the end of it ended up with an arse like a baboons and unable to sit down for a couple of days. The 3rd race was cancelled due to bad weather.

Are you going to the "Friends" do in March? If so, I might see you there.
It's the Museum's 20th anniversary this year isn't it?

Hi Splitpin

Yes, I will be attending the March meeting as I am also involved with the Classic Motorboat Club as editor of their quarterly magazine. We are staging our annual Dry Boat Rally at Pitsea the same day. I will bring hard copy with me of the the results project to date - you will have to identify yourself!

2006 is the museum's 20th Anniversary and there they will be having a celebration weekend in September I believe.
