I believe that MBY this month will have the odds worked out by some of the organising commitee. many thanks for putting us first in RB2 you may want to now we have never raced before and half of us are taxi drivers so we will probably be going the long way round

Line honours surely must go to a Buzzi boat if not the favourite FPT then Wettpunkt or perhaps blue FPT, wettpunkt in the past has had some serious reliability issues so these must have been sorted one assumes, then their is the UK Buzzi entries, again the Tecno and Silverline have had some major engine gremlins over the years so all this brings it back to Buzzi/FPT geared suitably for running on failed engines so as to lose no points on any stage and he's the man again, unless.......

Overall - Fabio or possibly Wettpunkt if they don't get any mechanical gremlins.

MC1 - Gotta be the 55ft Buzzi

RB3 - I think this'll be hotly contested. Goldfish are making some huge speed claims for their boats but i can't see that 380hp out of a Yanmar on standard drives is going to be reliable. My money is on Shelly and Neil Holmes in the Sunseeker.

RB4 - The B28 is going to fly but probably going to go through a few powerheads. For me its between the RIB Internation Artic Blue with twin diesels, Fullers Phantom 32 with twin diesels and the Pascoe with twin outboards.

The temptation to disclose top speed figures is so high but i think what ever happens it will be an epic event, one which all will enjoy and remember regardless of who wins each class. good luck to all and see you there in a few weeks.
