Does it spend enough time IN the water to get cooling water to the engines?

First of all sorry about the whole Poole Quay thing - we were directed to Lake Boatyard and the marina entrance is narrow and not protected from the wind and tide, one boat had clattered the sides ont he way out so we decided to leave it on the trailer on Saturday. The gods that be wold only let us do the basic race rather than the Marathon race - that sage will run on for a while I think - more details as I know them.

As for the race itself - the boat behaved perfectly with only one issue with a trim ram to report. The team worked well together and we're looking forward to racing the boat lots more.

Unfortunately the GoPro camera remained on top of the boat charged up with a 32gig card in it but some numpty forgot to turn it on! Ooooooops!

Polwort - plenty of cooling! The trouble is everyone published photos of the thing flying!
