Celebrities, Speed Junkies, Bikini Clad Models and Eccentrics begin an epic 200-mile speed rally in more than 35 stunning power boats ranging from a 7 metre race boat to an 18 metre Hovercraft. Starting under the majesty of Tower Bridge in the heart of the capital, this adrenaline charged event will be the first of its kind in the world . Set to become the Gumball Rally of the waves, this event is attracting speedboat crazy personalities from all over the globe. With the organisers in talks regarding major TV coverage , the event looks to become one of the hottest fixtures on the sporting and social calendar.
Setting off right under Tower Bridge, 20,000 horsepower will roar down the Thames providing a visual spectacle like nothing seen before.The 3-day rally crosses the Channel and travels via Boulogne to finish at the American Film Festival in Deauville, France. While en route the extreme wave farers will indulge in a stream of extravagant parties laid on by the organisers in secret locations from Châteaux to private houses.
THE LAUNCH PARTY - Saturday 7th May
The launch party for the event took place at the Royal Thames and attracted 300 potential sponsors and Rally entrants. A number of journalists also attended including OK magazine, Good Life magazine, The Telegraph, Book Moda magazine and more. Due to it’s huge popularity we now intend to hold a second pre-rally party nearer the time of the event which will also promote sponsors that are involved.
There will be limited places for selected press to be imbedded in the rally and attend all the parties throughout.
About the Organizers
The Deauville Rally is organized by Edward Balme and Sir Dai Llewellyn. Edward, whose grandfather captured the famous Enigma Decoder machine from a German U-boat, has grown up spending a lot of his time racing around in speed boats down in St Tropez. With Sir Dai, who has always had a love for powerboating, they aimed to create an event with the speed and madness of the Gumball rally but with the celebrity and glamour of life on the waves.
