I think the Challenge - as opposed to the Race - proposed by HMS for next year
will cost a lot less than that.
Your total you illustrated is just under £30K.

I would hope to do the trip with a budget more like £6K
Its still a lot of money.
I dont have a race team budget.

Havnt seen an entry fee ...
lets assume - 600.00 ??

Then for my 90hp Rib..
Fuel - 3000.00... (to include NCL to PLY and return on the trailer)

B and B / Hotel - 14 nts at 100 = 1400.00

Food / Misc / 2 stroke - 1000.00

that gives 6K total...

As I've mentioned before, I fancy the idea of helping with land support for RB - subject to usual caveats about availability, etc.
