'Extreme Offshore Class' put forward by MPA Powerboat Events
MPA Powerboat Events has suggested it be called ‘Extreme Offshore Class’, which is more suited to the event than ‘Marathon’ and ‘Endurance’ classes, both of which already exist.
The company has also asked for ‘Promoter’ status as the official organier of the race, which is the first in a series of these long-distance events MPA intends to run.
If all goes to plan, the 2013 Cowes to Monte Carlo will be followed by a race from Venice to Monte Carlo in 2015 and two
years later by an event between New York and Miami.
Subsequent races from Athens to Monte Carlo and Abu Dhabi to Mumbai could then follow.
