Join a race team as they blast across the Channel in the Venture Cup Prologue

A rare opportunity has opened to join one of the teams taking part in the Venture Cup Prologue offshore powerboat race, which starts in London on June 8.

This is the race being run in place of the longer Venture Cup London to Monte Carlo event, which will now be run in 2014.

To see more on this summer’s race, and why the bigger event was pushed back to next year, pick up the March issue of Motor Boat & Yachting, out now.

Several craft taking part in this year’s event can carry more than the minimum crew of two and have spare capacity to take a passenger(s).

The race begins with a run down the Thames to a refuelling stop in Brighton. From here it goes direct to Guernsey where crews will have a resting lay-day.

The next legs involve a race round the island itself and a crossing to the French coast. The final leg on June 11 takes competitors back to the finish at Bournemouth and Poole.

The cost of taking part as a passenger will be negotiable with the owner/driver in each case.

Anyone interested in what is likely to be a memorable experience should contact the race organiser at aidan@ventureoffshorecup.com.
