Round Britain & Ireland Powerboat Rally (or race ?)

I heard a radio news item today, that the above event had been cancelled.
Anyone know any details please ?

Not Missed a Cowes-Torquay-Cowes/Cowes Classic Race since I saw the 1963 race from behind the cannon at The RYS !

Hi Martin
It was cancelled a few weeks ago. Many of the RIBs were petrol powered and a source for refuelling down the east coast could not be arranged. There are not enough fixed site refuellers and none of the authorities would sign off on tanker deliveries. Yet another victory for the H&S, risk averse society in which we live!
See you at the end of August
All the best
