We saw some of it from the cliff top as they rounded The Needles, but its 7 miles so even through good binoculars it was hard to see. However it was as calm as it could have been hence I suppose the fast speeds.

That 1 second gap must have been frustrating Ian.

For the non nerds amongst you, 1 second at 102 mph is about 150ft. :shock: :D

In the latest PBR, there's a Technohull RIB tested at 114 mph (3 x Merc 450Rs...)

Is this a new race at this time of the year, I can’t believe I’ve never seen it or heard of it. Or has it just changed from when it used to run concurrently with the cowes Torquay race in august?
Smaller ones went round, bigger class 1’s did Torquay?
