Speed freaks were out in force for the first ever Records Week to be held on Coniston Water.

The first ever Records Week to be held on Coniston Water attracted a host of speed freaks from across the country.

The annual Lake District event, moved from its traditional venue of Lake Windermere after the imposition of a 10mph speed limit there in April, was a huge success with a wealth of new world and national records set.

See Motor Boats Monthly’s January issue for the full story, but read on to see the new class speeds in full, pending ratification by the UIM.
