OK, this is going to separate the men from the boys! RB12 is shaping up to be a massive event, with cars and planes racing as well as powerboats, and a whole programme of supporting events.
Entry to RB12 (Sea) is open
Deposits for the sea element of Round Britain Race 2012 can be paid from today, Friday 6th November. With over 130 registrations of interest for the 75 places, and a limit of 40 RIBS, the race is likely to be well oversubscribed - we therefore recommend early entry. A Reserve List will be in operation.
A place in RB12 (Sea) is reserved by payment of a non-returnable deposit of £500 (ex VAT). On receipt of the deposit payment, RB12 will send an Entry Form for completion. Three further payments are required in accordance with the table below to guarantee a starting place. Entry to RB12 (Sea) is charged at a rate of £12.50 per horsepower(HP) ex VAT. The minimum payment is based on an estimated average of 630HP. For boats of less than 630HP, the final payment will be adjusted to reflect the correct Entry Fee. Entries for boats of unknown HP at the time of payment of the deposit should estimate and pay accordingly. Any shortfall in Stage Payments must be made up when HP is confirmed. All Entrants will be required to provide accurate and final HP by 1 January 2012.

RB12 will, in exceptional circumstances, allow the Entrant’s place to be transferred to a new Entrant (if available), at which time Stage Payments less a 20% administration fee will be refunded. Entries are non-transferable without the written consent of the organisers.
