Team leader Neil McGrigor, and the crew of the Round Britain World Record attempt powerboat Bradstone Challenger, have been asked to join the parade of vessels for the International Fleet Review in the Solent as part of the Trafalgar 200 celebrations.
The powerful 51ft (14.8m) Blade Runner powerboat is capable of speeds equivalent to 85 miles per hour on the water and will make an unusual sight amongst the formal, Grey Navy ships and stately Tall Ships.
The Team is currently on full standby to begin their attempt on the world record for circumnavigating Britain. The challenge is huge; the time to beat is under 31 hours! The four-man team will need to keep up a fast, constant speed to achieve the record. This will require extreme concentration by the whole team, particularly during darkness as they pass through the North Sea oil fields.
The Bradstone Challenge has the latest Marine Track satellite tracking device on board allowing the operations room at the Royal Lymington Yacht Club to trace her progress as she travels anti-clockwise around the Britain. Supporters can also access that information via the attempt web site: www.roundbritainrecord.com.
At the first sign of a favourable weather window a count down sequence begins and start alerts will be given from T-3 days.
The record will be attempted from and to the Royal Yacht Squadron line off Cowes, Isle of Wight.
