COPC have been working hard in the background with UKOPRA to set up a speed trial for motorboats through a measured mile, both directions, entrants will get a certificate.

No more Yacht Club bar wild claims, its time to push the levers for'd and show what your boat can really do.

It is to be held September 28th/29th, based in Yarmouth with the course set up east of the Pier.

Exciting!

End of September not the best time of year Ben, unless we have all been out and had our bottoms scrubbed it wonít be a true reflection of what our boats can achieve. Maybe we can have the trials done again April ish.

This event has been set up as there is to be no traditional Powerboat Records Week on Coniston this autumn.
Clearly a very different event - but surely worth supporting, even to do better next year?

Frank, stop at Lymington on the way for a quick jet wash in the slings.
