Update on the Parties:

The pre-launch party on the Belfast was an enormous succuess, with all the rally entrants mixing with stars and celebreties, along with the media...BBC News, Sky and Richard and Judy.

The ZapCat racing team did a superb display on the Thames by Tower Bridge.

Then the party moved to London's most exclusive club, Modiva, where the competitors partied the night away chatting to the likes of Robbie Williams, Elton John etc who are all looking to buy a Rib.

The picture shows one of the boats in Soho outside the club which will be launched in time for the rally tommorrow

Yes be interesting to see how many boats are taking part.

Weather seems good for them, should be a fast crossing.

I was at the party last and met TimW and was a fine gentlemen. We discussed this thread and was brieflt interupted by the swathes of beautiful looking women in Movida. This is going to be such a cool event, I'm in a boat wiith four girls so I think that I might make page3 in the sun, obviously no-one would want to look at me but I am sure that my crew will be a well sort after asset. The organisers have done a fantastic job and now I'm off to pack the sun cream and sex toys for the in flight entertainment.

So for all those that are in the Tower Bridge area...there is going to be more hp for square mile here that a F1 race could dream of

One very excellent reason of having nothing to do with this event....At least I work for a living

What a joke ! I have seen more boats in my bath tub !

These were the entrants that we saw :

1 Blade Runner
2 Zap Cats
2 Motor Cruisers
Approx 5 Ribs.

Where was the Hovercraft & Helicopter ?

Even the River Police seem bored with the whole thing and did not bother to offer an escort.

As I over heard from one of the organisers the usual Gumball f**k up !!

Personally I thing gumballs up would have been more appropriate !!
