The Boats

The Day
The day starts at 11 am at Shamrock Quay in Southampton with registration, briefing and safety talk.
Then some of the teams start training while the other teams have a relaxing cruise aboard the mother ships. During this time informal racing tips will be given to the competitors. The training aboard the boats will be from experienced powerboat drivers including some ex National and even world Powerboat Champions. Subjects covered include tips on cornering, driving through waves, acceleration, throttle settings racing line etc.
In the afternoon the timed circuits will commence. Our computerised timing equipment will ensure that the times are accurately recorded (down to 100th / second). Crews will be randomly ?seeded? throughout the boats to ensure fairness. The average time of the teams will calculated to find the ranking. The day finishes with a champagne prize giving and presentation.
