I know and I really am not in a position to make such a sweeping statement however judging by the last thread I read on BM about the Venture Cup it does seem to be imploding somewhat.

Think I preferred the previous commentator, unless I needed lulling to sleep

Good old Jim Davidson, wonder what he's up to these days...

Jim Davidson used to race boats in the early days. I stopped him from falling in the drink in Poole one year

For me it was the style that things were done in...just with the right 'can do' attitude and I'm sure everyone trying to help acheive the same end - almost as if the fact it was a race was an added benefit (but knowing that actually poeple still wanted to go faster/ win ).

I'm also a big big fan of the boats of the day......take a boat racing then sit on the deck of same boat with a G&T .....and nothing would have looked out of place

Again there are a good few gentlemen young and old with that same attitude God forbid a g&t now they do Radom tests for that
