There will always be lots of banter between our great islands, apparently it's the law!!!
As Toby said there are very few race boats left over here, and even less enthusiasm from their owners to look after them let alone race them. You Guerns seems to have a lot more get up and go in that department.
Unfortunately I won't be racing this year as I'm still on the mend from a back op in Jan - an injury probably originating from RB08 Milford Haven to Bangor leg! Was assuming I'd be better sooner, and although am good I don't think good enough to risk a bashing. I will however make sure that the B28 is ready so that Toby can race if he does't have other commitments. I have to say however that so far he has been doing all the work. My bit starts shortly when Mr Smith brings me back an XR2 block and crank from the UK (he's over there now) so that we have a PAIR of motors to run. The same goes for Venom - I'll have her ready aswell incase someone wants to race her.
Will do my best to get there to watch the racing if nothing else, although at the mo the dates clash with the wifes birthday in June and our 'family' holiday in August which is a real bummer. The poker runs however are a different kettle of fish altogether. No date clashes and a clear concience that I 'won't be doing anything that might hurt my back', yer right!!! but it sounds good.
