Re: 18 & 19th August

Looking forward to meeting up on Sunday at AV at around 12:00 for a few and then walk to the sea front to watch the basic race and the ski race.. hopefully it will be not too choppy as >1000 hp and 110mph with a bloke on a plank sounds interesting

Re: 18 & 19th August

Its only the Formula 1 inboards that achieve that,
Look out for number 8 blue Cyclone however they may bring the twin instead if its rough both hulls are blue and look the same but twins can only do around 95mph if flat.
O and number 74 (me) saturday pulling a junior (slowly) but sunday should be good in Formula 2

"Only 95mph, and holding a bit of string". I'm looking forwards to seeing this.
