ORDA Torquay 29th May

Hey!

Michelle here from PPG Marine. Our 11m cabin RIB, the Gulwing, was flying the flag for RIBs at the ORDA Powerboat race in Torquay last weekend. A podium finish after 100 miles in force 6/7 conditions! The race report with photos and results is here PPG Marine if you fancy a read. Great to see all 4 RIBs finish in such extreme conditions!

Good result, well done. Will you be showing the boat at Southampton again this year?

Congratulations to Phil and Neil on a well earned result.
I can vouch from personal experience as to how good this boat actually is...
A couple of pics I took from it's maiden voyage.....

Hey Jizm - thanks for the nice comments and photos, much appreciated!

John - we're still not sure if we'll be ready for Southampton, mainly because the boat is going to be spending the next few months being put through its paces. I think it'll be a last minute decision depending on where we are with it. Fingers crossed though!

Great result and really pleased for the whole team.

Just the start and so much potential for the PPG - as a race or a leisure RIB.
