The clue is in the name "Speed Week", There's an endurance race on the Saturday, (Sun possibly) but all the speed trials are Mon - Fri.

yes I always thought a week was mon-sun, not mon-fri
as most people work mon-fri, would think they would have as much as possible on the last wkend??

is it worth going all the way say for fri sat and sun to watch??
or is this event really only worth going if your entering your boat rather than spectating?

Racing from Bowness Powerboat club.
Try and get a B&B in Bowness if you can about 5 mins in the car.

Is that the same as Windermere Motor Boat Racing Club, or is there another since I was last on that particular piece of water ?
