It's a real fun day on the water and a party afterward!

You pay an entry fee and navigate to various locations where you pick a playing card in an envelope. you collect 5 then go back to the party and hand your cards in. the person with the best Poker hand wins a biggish cash prize.

check out the Poker run pages and pictures on BoatMad.

Poker Run

Would it be wise to consider joining in on this Poker Run with a 3.6 Metre RIB ?

Here are some more details from Fiona and Gill at Drivers Wharf:

Everyone needs to be at D.W at 09.30am for a light breakfast and briefing hopefully at 10.00. Launching starts at 08.30am

Folley booked for lunch 1.30pm ... selection of hot food will be available (no bar-b-que this time due to the time of year)

Evening Party - 7.30pm till late - extra tickets can be bought for the price of £10 prior to arrival.
Hot food will be served and wine on the tables.

Lots of fun and we welcome all boats what ever size as long as they can do approx. 35 mph. (we will do a shorten course for the Zap Cats and slower vessels!)

£50 per boat including a hand of cards

£20 per person
£10 per child over 10yrs

Prize money:
£300 for 1st
£100 for 2nd
and two joker cards - prize £50 each!

Launch, recovery and trailer storage for the weekend - £40

Anyone who's at the Portsmouth Powerboat finals 26th - 28th September, are most welcome to store their boats at Driver's Wharf for the week till the Poker Run on the 4th Oct - FREE OF CHARGE!!! This is to enable you all to party and not keep towing ya boat around!!

Already we have 15 boats confirmed and we'll have to close the entry list at 35!!

Does anyone want to be a committee boat and be part of the organising team? Free entertainment and food.

Hope you can make the Poker Run...... would be fun for you to join us!

Any queries please ring

They are looking for a minimum speed of 35 knots (and would really like boats to be faster than that), so you may have a bit of trouble keeping up! There will probably be some people with crew spaces, so why not give the organisers a call and see what you can sort out?
