BananaShark Team E-Lites launch party

Launching our new sponsor E-Lites Electronic Cigarettes for 2011 and 2012 - The Race boat in its new livery complete with the latest networked Raymarine electronics and amazingly economical Yanmar engines will be alongside the bar for the evening with the usual great drink and food available - Book early if you're coming and everyone is welcome!

We will be doing a limited number of demo's to genuinely interested parties and VIP's during the day and possibly on Sunday weather and time permitting - pre-booked only though.

No free beer! :-)

Here are some graphics kindly rendered by Petter Martins in Norway (Scand on here), these are the rough idea of how the boat will look, luckily there is no tobacco involved so they can't ban us from TV!







We will be keeping the interior matt black but producing small stickers for the benefit of the on board cameras.

PHP Code:
launch party E-Lites Barrus Raymarine BananaShark

Mmmmmm There seems to be a little feet dragging going on - it has to go to a committee now after it has been passed to the UIM (who don't have any problems with it), a decision that could have taken one person to sign it off!

Thats all right then. At the moment the RYA are insisting that I have a full international race Licence to go around the world. It means nothing to them that I have every boating Qualification available under the sun and that I have worked bloody hard to get and now they want to charge me for a usless piece of paper that anyone can get without much experiance. Money making Scheme or what?
