    Since the start of the 2018 RYA Honda Youth Powerboat season in February we have had some diverse weather.

    TST Series 7 & Cruiser Sunday B1 Race Report : 3rd June 2018

    A beautiful summer's day saw eight Squibs come out to race and the wind gods just about mustered enough puff to get them around a single lap. Slow handicappers found it difficult to make progress against the fast-ebbing tide but the Charlottes in their Feva managed to complete their course while Sam Osborne's Tera had to retire. Before the Squibs started, a lone cruiser set off into the South Easterly breeze for her zig-zag course
