Incidentally, it may not be a good idea to run 100 amateurs trying to race across Bullock Patch on a Saturday in August as there may be a lot of people fishing there.

For clarity as it is a race do participants have to carry extra safety equipment and is it expected competitors will have to wear crash helmets or is it a glorified cruise without race type gear required?

Lets enjoy

To everybody interested. The emphasis is on having some fun on this day, its been a long time since anybody has organised a race open to all on the South coast. Our insurers have Ok'd the event and approved the application form.

All authorities have been alerted and the day will go ahead barring awful weather conditions.

It should also be a good evening in Marina Jaks which we're hoping everybody can attend.

We ask all entrants to be careful on race day to ensure the longevity of the race which we hope to last the weekend next year with further categories and heats in the existing ones.

Participants must inform their insurance company of their inclusion in the race and must
ensure that both they and their rib are suitably insured. Participating vessels must have TPL
cover of at least 2,000,000
My insurance excludes racing. I suspect quite a few others does too.

Anyone have any idea how much it'd cost to add it for one day?

I know sailing clubs organise fun races regularly but I haven't seen the same in Powerboating.
I'd love to get behind it but it sounds a little too good to be true, is there any equipment required? is there any safety cover?
