I saw one of the race boats moored up at the Jolly Sailor on Sunday afternoon... what a beast... and what a noise... even when it was just doing 5 knots going up the Hamble... 85mph or there abouts top speed... wow!!!

Shame it didn't go out into Southampton Water, but popped into the Rising Sun at Warsash. I would of loved to have seen it zoom up Southampton Water.

Did i see you at Torquay on your boat?

We need to get more speed on the flat ( looks like a winter project ) mind you putting it up calshot beach the night before didn't help much and no it wasn't me.

Boat ended up as a water taxi cruising the pubs on Sunday
