2013 Cowes to Monte Carlo race caps entry

Possible handling problems along route forces organisers to reduce fleet size

The decision has been made to reduce the number of teams entering the 2013 Cowes to Monte-Carlo Powerboat Grand Prix from 55 to 50.

Response from various marinas along the route was that finding space for 55 contenders could prove a problem.

But handling, organising and re-fuelling up to 50 powerboats in one afternoon will still be a major challenge as proved the case with the Round Britain in 2008.

Any team not able to register and submit their non-refundable entry fee deposit will now be placed on the reserve listing.
