Powerboat Racing @ Southsea

Hi

I spent a very pleasant afternoon watching the Powerboats racing off of Southsea this afternoon.

There were some some very impressive RIBS ( I took pictures of the rigid boats as well, but I guess not the forum for those!) and it made a good opportunity to try out my new camera

I've never been to a powerboat racing event before, so I don't really understand all the different classes, etc, but it was just fun to see lots of fast boats dashing around. Like this one - this I think is a Bat Boat?
