Are you man enough?
Do you want to race against the best powerboaters in the world – in one of the greatest powerboat races in the world? (And you can do it in your own boat.)
Now is the time to decide – the organisers of the Round Britain Powerboat Race are urging any potential entrants to apply for the remaining places before it’s too late.
There are 48 entrants confirmed, including, among the high-powered race machines, a brave group of everyday motor cruisers in two production classes. There is also a classic class with Faireys and other historic designs lining up on the start line in June.
Event Director Mike Lloyd says: “Those remaining competitors still intending to enter this great race are strongly urged to do so now as the confirmed entrants list approaches some 48 racing craft.
“It’s an incredible turn-out in all classes.”
Meanwhile well-known powerboater Tim Powell has been appointed race chairman.
Tim was second in the first Round Britain Race, in 1969, and organised the second event in 1984.
He has also organised the Cowes Classic for 25 years and competed in 20 of the races himself, as well as many Class 1 races.
Mike says: “Tim is a respected figure in the international racing community and there is no doubt that his very considerable knowledge and expertise in organisation and logistical matters, with the help of others, will ensure that this event will be the success it deserves to be.”
